Am I just....
Mar 20, 2009
overreacting? I am a 37 year old mother of 2 and I am so concerned about what is going on with me. I was just diagnosed with fibromyalgia a month ago but I am not totally convinced that that is in fact what is going on. About 1 1/2 years ago, I had this terrible pain in my right eye. It hurt when I moved it, it felt heavy all of the time. I went to the opthamologist. He said I had moderately high pressures in both of my eyes, floaters, gave me glasses and sent me on my way. Well the pain subsided on its own but the heaviness has never really gone away. Within this past year, I have been in terrible pain (muscle and joint), having problems opening jars, grabbing things, I cant remember my zip code, cant do normal multiplication, have unusual twitching episodes and a slew of other symptoms. I went to a rheumatologist and he diagnosed me with fibro. Last week I went to the eye dr again and after looking at my eyes, he asked me if I had any muscle or connective tissue disease which concerned me. I still have high pressures in both eyes, floaters, etc. I went ahead and made an appointment with a neurologist because I am truly scared. I have a friend who has MS and she seemed concerned too. Does anyone have any insight? I've read up on symptoms but I know each person presents differently. Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated because I really feel all alone!
