A few years ago I was diagnosed with Rocky Mtn "unspotted" fever (no rash--hence the name), had it treated and have had problems since. I have always had low back pain and have had herniated disks in my neck in the past few years (due to a car accident I think). Since the RMF though, I have had chronic all-over body pain, dizzy spells off and on, unexplained fevers, memory problems, heart rhythm abnormalities (it feels like my heart beats irregularly sometimes), swelling of hands and feet occasionally, poor circulation (had it before a bit but it is worse now--hands and feet stay cold alot and fall asleep more often), and very stiff joints sometimes. I also get bronchitis very easily (atleast once every few months). A few years ago I also had h-pylori. I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia (due to lack of anything else to call it I think) and am told by a friend that it may be disautonomia? Any advice from anyone dealing with similar probs would be appreciated. Thanks!
