    Hello there


    I have heard that there are similarities in some of the symptoms of fibromyalgia and MS.  What does your doctor say?  Have you undergone any tests to rule out MS?  Have you had any MRI's yet?


    What I will suggest to you is to write down all of these symptoms and when they start and when they end, how severe they are, and if there are any precursors such as having a virus, or being overheated and give this list to your doctor.  See what he says.  I would be direct and ask if MS could be a cause of any of these symptoms.


    You really won't know anything though until you talk with your doctor and do the necessary testing.


    Thank you for your question and let us know what happens with you.
