Hi, this is just a general discussion about my general health and a query as to whether I now better fit a diagnosis of fibromyalgia over ME/CFS. Initially my symptoms were dominated by nausea, vomiting, swollen lymph nodes and general weakness - my guess is that this was an "acute phase" which eventually passed after 2-3 months. Since then the main symptoms I now suffer are frequent headaches/migraines, muscle aches.pains following exertion, reactive hypoglycemia, IBS type symptoms, underarm/rib pain (I'm guessing this is costochondritis), bouts of TMJ and occasional brain fog/blurred vision. Of these the main problems would be the muscle pain, headaches and hypoglycemia. I've been testing myself a little of late and have noticed that i'm quite capable of walking around and even went around a car boot sale last weekend and didn't suffer for it other than muscle aches/pains that evening and the next morning. In-fact, contrary to feeling worse, being a little more active has helped me to feel a little better of late, sadly I've get a cold at the moment so I'm quite achy but I think I'll continue doing more where I can; this is definitely something I don't think many here would attest to. What makes me wonder is I've never suffered with the classic "crashes" which are seemingly so common in ME/CFS, after exercise I simply feel achy, sore and a little worn out the following day but I can still function relatively well. Researching a little I think the main problems I have point more towards fibromyalgia than they do ME/CFS. I realise they often come together but I seem to be lacking the key criteria for ME/CFS which does make me wonder, perhaps my acute onset (following vaccinations and antibiotics) in fact triggered gastritis or pancreatitis - that would explain the symptoms at the time and the resulting stress combined with the stress of moving to university triggered the fibro... who know. Let me know what you think and whether you've ever considered your diagnosis could better befit something else.
