Have fibromyalgia, weakness in joints. Twitching fingers. Any answers?

nerologist said i have fibromyalgia 4 yrs ago. He ruled out ms. My symptoms are getting worse with walking a problem i use an aid due to my right side giving way. Now my joints mainly wrists and ankles are now getting weaker and find it had to write and grab a pen. Ive had physio and other things to try without sucess. The physio even did one test and said turn around put pressure on top of my head whilst standing and i collapsed. Iv had mri of head n back and waiting for one of my neck . My nerve endings in my fingers are going mad and im now twitching. I cant lift my arms up. Gp thinks nerve strappd in neck, chiropractor thinks degenerative disc but i dunno what to believe. Have you got any answers? please.

Thanks for writing to Healthcare magic,

I have studied your case,
I will advise you to again rule out MS first ,if its ok then other possibility remain
cervical spine disc bulge will lead to similar problem .you need to continue physiotherapy, take muscle relaxant and neurotropics.

Yes MRI spine and brain will help in diagnosis lets wait for reports.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
