Question: Yes, please! Past several weeks waking in morning with stomach contractions (dry heaves) and the prior night cramping in feet as I lie down to sleep and some palsy in hands during the day. I do have fibromyalgia and wondering if connected. Thank you

Detailed Answer:
Dear Madam,

Thank you for posting your query on HCM.

Well fibromyalgia can have different presentations and all the features that you are telling can be found with it . But primarily it sounds to be a part of Fibromyalgia only but of if symptoms increase on intensity then we should rule out other possibilities like lupus or arthritis etc .

Take care.
