Hi Everyone, I'm new to this group, and have not been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, but suspect something is definitely going on. In Nov. 2006 I was diagnosed with Iritis, and my optometrist suggested I it could be related to an autoimmune disorder. I had all the blood tests for thyroid, ANA, etc. and everything came back normal. Since then I've had episcleritis (Inflammation of the white part of your eye) with a conjunctival cyst. I'm always tired, but attributed it to my lifestyle (One of my kids has special needs and I own my own business - my life is crazy!) I do feel weak, experience heel pain, have intolerance to cold (Reynaud's), and sometimes I feel extreme pain when someone pokes me or I bump into something. I guess I'm gunshy about going to a doctor when all my blood tests are coming back with nothing. I'm just trying to judge for myself if I could have fibromyalgia, or if it's all in my head. I've done a lot of research on the internet, and of all the autoimmunes, fibromyalgis seems to most closely fit my symptoms. Any advice or personal stories that might apply would be great appreciated.
