I'm new here and in need of advice.
I've done some research into fibromyalgia after talking to a friend and wanted to ask if these sounds like I may have it.
I have ripping burning pain in the base of my neck and left shoulder with pain that radiates down my left arm into my elbow, wrist and hand with tingling feelings. This pain has now become daily for hours sometimes the whole day. It has also now gone to my right shoulder arm and wrist. My left is so much worse though. I also get pain in my right hip, both legs, both ankles and feet really ache and are painful. I also get agonising pain at the bottom of my spine, spreading to the sides, top of my bum and can't sit for long without burning stabbing pain there. I get headaches, very dizzy daily and constantly exhausted. I also get kidney pain.
Long list I know but thought I'd better put it all.
Thank you all x x

Sounds like all my symptoms but please check with your doctor

Sounds like a lot of my symptoms, but please get any new symptoms checked out. Never presume it’s fibro related even though it quite often is. Better safe than sorry. Hope you can find some relief soon. Part of your symptoms sounds like sciatica, I find lying with an apple or tennis ball under the middle of my bum cheek helps xx

Thank you for your replies. I'm already booked in for blood tests next Tuesday. I'll see what the doctor says
