One of my friends has Fibromyalgia and another one has M.S. Both of them had symptoms for years before properly diagnosed. It seems to be difficult for doctors to diagose these diseases. The one with fibromyalgia has constant pain in different areas which was thought to be arthritis but it wasn't in the joints, (which should have been their first clue) it was in the muscles. Areas would swell, be sensitive and hot to the touch. The pain has been excruciating, traveling down from her arms to her legs and hip. Both friends have gotten good help from the internet and books recommended there. Keep doing your own research then keep asking your doctor about what you find. God bless!
