Does anyone else with Chronic Fatigue or Fibromyalgia have recurring pain in the neck. Like the lymph nodes there are sore and maybe swollen. It makes my neck feel real tight and I have tightness in my jaw and face as well. Do you know of anything to do to help this? It's driving me crazy & I'm scared I have lymphoma type cancer or something. :confused:
Thanks for the info. I think I have had Chronic Fatigue Syndrome for many years. When I was around 16, I got a bad case of mono that recurred 3 times within a year. Then after that things started happening, first I developed irritable bowel. Then came the fatigue, I could sleep all day everyday and various pains throughout my body. I just always felt run down, no energy. Then last may, my neck tightness that was off & on occasionally became constant everyday. It runs around my jaw & ears too. I had come to accept it the fatigue & body aches, but the neck tightness was killing me. Then I became pregnant last summer (1st child) & had high blood pressure during pregnancy, which has since persisted. Anyway, I delivered 1 month early in Feb this year after being on bed rest for 1 1/2 months. Since the delivery everything has been worse. I have bad aches & strange pains all over. Pains in my flanks, headaches, neck tightness, left side rib pain that goes thru to my back (severe). Every day something or somethings hurt. I've had numerous tests which have shown nothing but a spleen at the upper limits of normal, which the docs said was no big deal. I feel as though I have swollen lymph nodes, like when I have my arms at my side, it feels swollen, just uncomfortable. I always feel so run down and in pain. The other thing that started after the baby is that I have muscle twitches all over my body (legs, hands, etc.) and my scalp is sensitive to the touch. I have a burning feeling on my skin alot. Also, for several years I get this feeling in my head like I'm running a fever but I'm not. Right after the mono infection in my teens though, I had low grade fever for a long time. What specifically do you do to help your pain and energy. I'm 29 now and after many tests since my pregnancy, a rheumatologist told me I have fibromyalgia. I believe I have fibro & chronic fatigue (I kinda think they are related closely and intertwined). I'm on trazadone to help me sleep deeper I guess and Neurontin for what they think is nerve pain, although it hasn't helped and also Xanax to help with the twitches and anxiety. I do admit I'm having major anxiety over this, thinking it is something life-threatening. It just seems as though the pregnancy has really flared my illness up. I have had ANA levels checked for things like Lupus and they have been normal. Does anyone else have this many symptoms and do you feel that it really is chronic fatigue/fibro or are you scared it's something else? What meds and treatments help? Thanks to anyone who replies.
