Brief Answer:
I do not think that you need to get concerned about the heart rate

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

Let me assure you that many people have a heart rate of 96/min and that having premature ectopic beats is pretty common too. In either case, it is not a cause of concern. The fibromyalgic pain could be related to levels of stress in the body which in turn could be related to the increased heart rate.

I would encourage regular morning walk and moderate physical workout as that is essential for a healthy body and mind.

I also have a number of lesions on my brain, 10 were noticed in 2008 one the size of a nickel, another mri done this past march and I have more, the some of the other ones have grown, and changed shape, I have head aches, I get my words mixed up, I zone out, (become disconnected from conversations, or loose track of what I am hearing, or doing) all concerns of my family members too. Have you heard of these issues!! Yes your last message was helpful!!! Thank you!!

Brief Answer:
The symptoms correlate but requesting you to upload reports

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing back.

I have heard of similar issues earlier. The brain lesions could have occurred due to a number of possibilities. The symptoms are explainable but could you please upload the report of the MRI or the test by which the finding was observed? You can use the facility on the right of this page for the same.

I would await your response.

I don't have the reports as they were brought up on my doctors computer. He was not very giving of information, and because of it, I am seeking others opinions. What I do know is that I was told I have fibromyalgia, which seems to be increasing, at least 4 times a week, I sweat especially at night, and have what I like to call phantom pains sporadically throughout my body because I don't know why it is happening, most generally in my right side. I have pain off and on through my stomache, and occasionally it feels like a balloon that is being expanded mainly on my left side. I get incredibly bad headaches which feel like my head is being cracked down the left side of my skull, and my eye sight is getting blurry. These symptoms have all progressed over the past 2 years but have been happening for 4+.

Brief Answer:
Please demand the details from your doctor. The other way is to repeat test

I understand that your doctor might not be very cooperative in terms of giving out information but this could be a very serious condition and you have the right to information. The condition could require critical interventions, the lack of which could even be life threatening. So please demand the information. Share it with me or get a specialised neurological opinion.

I hope that you understand that it is hard to offer proper opinion if there is lack of critical information. If you demand the information for expert opinion, I do not think that your doctor would refuse.
