. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia several years ago. Usually just took advil. For the past year now, the pain and aches have worsened. I am on SSI for this, for many years. But symptoms are changing. Several months ago my feet have gotten very bad, every symptom of diabetic neuropathy, but I don t have diabetes. They are numb, I get explosive pains in the bones of my feet, especially at night. Also, went to a Rheumatologist a few months ago, had a lot of blood drawn, and test came back POS for systemic Scheroderma.(SP) My PCP says I don t have this condition. My Rheumatologist said don t lose any sleep on this finding. But I am getting worse and worse. Have been started on Gabopenton, 600mg a day. It really helps a lot, but still have the same problems. Have to use lortab 5mg on horrific days. Also, am very very fatigued. I don t understand what is happeneing to me and can t quite seem to get a clear cut answer from my Doctors; something more definitive. Can you help?
