All tests are completely negative.
No chronic arthritis in my hands.
I’m just really getting frustrated.
And maybe I just need to accept that it’s only fibromyalgia.
But it’s like no one believes the pain I’m in or the things I’m feeling.
Sorry that the…
If your gut is telling you that something bigger than fibromyalgia is going on, then something bigger than fibromyalgia probably is going on.
Here’s a short list of just a few of the many disorders, diseases, and syndromes doctors don’t have to test for to diagnose a person with fibromyalgia that can cause widespread pain and/or fatigue:
Common Variable immunodeficiency
Selectective immune deficiency
Ehlers danlos syndrome hypermobility type
Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome
Diabetes and diabetic related neuropathy
Small fiber neuropathy
Chronic enteroviral infection
Chronic chlamydophila pneumoniae infection
Chronic Epstein-Bar virus infection
Chronic West Nile virus infection
Other non-Lyme tickborne diseases
Degenerative or dislocated disc
Multiple chemical sensitivity syndrome
Other thyroid disorders
Myofascial pain syndrome
Myalgic encephalomyelitis/ chronic fatigue syndrome
Most doctors only test for arthritis, lupus, and vitals levels. It’s completely ridiculous.
