Fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis in knees, had head tremors, family history of celeac disease and whipple's. Treatment?

Hi. I am not sure which specialist to ask. I am a white female, age 52. I have a multitude of symptoms that could be diagnosed in a variety of ways. Last year my diagnosis was set at fibromyalgia as I pretty much had classic symptoms. However I have recently developed new symptoms: I now have confirmed osteoarthritis in my knees, I have had head tremors for some time and very recently pain under my ribs and stomach tremors that usually wake me up (though my bowel is working fine) and I have spent 2 days in ER with cardiac problems. There is history of celeac disease and whipples in the family.

I have read your query.

For celiac and whipples disease you should consult physicain.

For fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis you should take-

Pain relievers, over-the-counter pain relievers such as acetaminophen (Tylenol, others), ibuprofen.

Antidepressants like Duloxetine.

But you should not take any medicine without prescription of doctor.

Avoid squatting and upstairs as much as you can.

Get x-ray of both knees standing AP view done and discus it with your doctor or send me the report. Only then your final management can be done.

I hope it helps.
