Hi, everyone,
I have been posting on the Fibromyalgia, since having been dx'd with that a year ago. My symptoms changed recently to include:
Abdominal pain and tenderness (started about 4-5 weeks ago)
Back pain, bone and joint pain
Pigmentation of skin change (noticed a couple of months ago)
Upset stomach
Fatigue (different then FMS)
Dizziness when standing up
Eyes: milky, ill looking, w/dark bags and lines under
Color was almost jaundice a week ago now very pale
Low Blood Pressure has always been a struggle
Low Tempature: 96.3-96.7 very rarily is it in the 97.'s
No Appetite, (I am eating,tho)
White tongue
Dry mouth and eyes
Extreme Weight Loss, 10 lbs in the last 2 weeks, over 20 lbs in the last 2 months without trying.

I have been on a low dose of Cortisol since December '04 and started Heparin treatment the middle of March. Due to my trip to the ER last week, I am off the Heparin for now.

I have been struggling eating and taking my meds and supplements since I started feeling ill, about 10 days ago its like I have to force myself.

An interesting note is that I had been dx'd with a compromised immune system, and cellular level viruses: HHV6, CMV, Mycoplasma Pneumonia, and Candida, two of which are noted under the Addison's Disease. Also FMS causes malfunctions in the CNS and ANS. (by Dr Kent Holtorf, FMS & Fatigue Specialist in Torrance, CA)

I ended up in the ER last Wednesday with the above symptoms and blood found in my urine, where the doctor and my pcp doctor just contibuted the dx of Hematuria (blood in the urine) to the Heparin treatment. All they did was a clean test to verify that there was blood, noted my coloring and excused all of the other symptoms, yet a week later, I'm feeling all the listed symptoms still???

I had to push for it
Tomorrow I will have a CT scan of my abdomen, I really feel that there is something other than the usual symptoms of FMS going on, and I have missed a week of work. This is unusual...for me.
