temperature drop after dinner, anyone else?

thanks girls

Yeah the vision thing, the aching legs, the tiredness, the memory, the bladder woes.....it's all getting worse not better and the whole *******' medical community seems to be doing it's best to ignore me......I'm going to try and find time at lunch to get on the phone and rattle some chains this afternoon.......

seems to me that it should all add up to something....especially since so many of us have the same symptoms........

s all round!

I'm also having some recent troubles with my eyes, and think it's time to get some glasses. This is strange for me as I've had 20/20 vision all of my life
That's me too Judy Over the past 4-5 months my vision has gradually worsened. I experience frequent blurred vision...I keep saying I'm gonna go get them checked out but then I dont. I've been avoiding any additional Drs. visits...its been a nice break I'm gonna have to go tho...driving at dusk/dark is getting tricky...forbid it rain too I'm still looking for the info gals.

Gidge, you've shared soo many similiar symptoms of those of us w/Fibro...you always have?!? Have they ever even mentioned the possbility or did you ever get to see the Rheumy? If you've posted this before, I'm sorry, my *brainfog* hasnt improved either as you see <<sigh>>

((Hugs)) my friends

I asked my GP to send me to a rheumy and he wanted to send me to the sleep doc first.....I intend to bring it up with both of them.....there are just too many similiarities to ignore at this point and I would really like to feel abit better sometime soon or at least know why all this weird crap is happening!!!

thank god I'm not alone is all I can say, thanks for being there! 's!!!

Sheri - thank you for all the info...... very interesting.....I've got a funny feeling about all this. I've also been an IBS sufferer for years as well as having many aches and pains that I have always attributed to being a gymnast when I was younger. Gosh I hope I am wrong about this hunch I have........ Again thanks for all the info and the rest of you ladies I hope you get to feeling better soon

well never did get a chance to call any of the doc's from here on Friday I was so busy, spent most of the weekend alternately sleeping and trying to get xmas errands done...lied down for a nap on Sat at 5:00 and never woke up until 8:30pm!!!

today my bladder is on fire, my legs are aching to beat the band and my hands were asleep again when I woke up this morning (3rd morning in a row) this used to happen before and has just come back.

want to cry as it's only Monday and I feel this crappy.....hopefully one of the many docs that are supposed to be getting back to me actually do this week! :cry:

PS does anyone know if the asleep hands are Fibro related?

well and to spice things up a little I had a pain in my calf this morning (this leg does this sometimes swells and I get a pain in it and I also have had knee surgery on this leg) and now the pain has moved up to the inside of my knee where it's swelling and everytime I step on it I get shooting pains in it........


take me out back and shoot me I think it's the only way to go girls!

((Gidge)),
I experience this a lot...it can be caused by Fibro as well as CFS <Chronic Fatigue Syndrome> I have this happen at night which can also be a symptom of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome...my night-time episodes are thot to be from my CTS but who knows Here is a part from an article discussing the tingling/asleep feeling Fibro sufferers may experience in their limbs:

  Quote:
Patients with fibromyalgia usually ache all over, sleep poorly, are stiff on waking, and are tired all day. They are prone to headaches, memory and concentration problems, dizziness, numbness and tingling, itching, fluid retention, crampy abdominal or pelvic pain and diarrhea, and several other symptoms. There are no diagnostic lab or x-ray abnormalities, but a physician can confirm the diagnosis by finding multiple tender points in characteristic locations. Fibromyalgia often runs in families, suggesting an inherited predisposition. It may lie dormant until triggered by an injury, stress, or sleep disturbance. It is closely related to the chronic fatigue and irritable bowel syndromes. Some have suggested that these are all just different facets of the same underlying disorder.

Hope your feeling better

thanks for the info Sheri

I stopped at the clinic last night because my left leg continued to swell and it was moving up my leg....ended up with a very thorough doc who was going to send me straight to the ER but my vitals were good, so we're trying to get me in today for a doppler ultrasound and an xray on the leg....he figures it's either a blood clot or it could be a small cyst behind my knee.....I'm to watch it closely and if anything changes head to the ER and I have to take 3-325mg aspirin a day to help thin my blood till we know what's going on.

as of this morning it's the same size as last night and hurts just the same......not sure if that's good or bad...hopefully I get my tests today and not tomorrow as I have meetings scheduled here at work and that won't go over very well.....

if it's not one thing it's another :cry:

Big ((hugs)) Gidge I have a blood-clotting disorder,
Anti-Phospholipids Syndrome, which is a symptom of Lupus. I sometimes get clots in the superficial veins of my right leg It causes me a great deal of pain & swelling in that area. Luckily I have never had any resulting in Deep Veins which can be life-threatening as it can break off & enter your lung. I am on Aspirin therapy as well...there are things you can do that can help prevent blood from pooling & forming clots. Here are a few sites that have some info on this; symptoms, prevention ect...

Symptoms of a DVT:

When a clot forms, it can either partially or totally block the blood flow in that vein. Symptoms of a DVT can include:
When a clot forms, it can either partially or totally block the blood flow in that vein.

Symptoms of a DVT can include:
  • swelling of the leg
  • warmth and redness of the leg
  • pain that is noticeable, or worse when standing or walking
These are not always a sign of a DVT, but anyone who experiences them should contact a doctor immediately.

Treatment aims to prevent:
  • the clot becoming larger
  • the blood clot breaking loose and travelling to the lungs
  • new clots from forming
  • post-thrombotic syndrome
