Answer

Have you be examined to see if you have fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgia or FM is believed to be a kind of hypersensitivity disorder that results in high levels of usually body-wide pain - which you appear to have - as well as increased fatigue, poor sleep, problems thinking clearly and often increased sensitivity to light, odors, etc. It is also sometimes accompanied by something called orthostatic intolerance - which can cause problems when you stand.

It appears to be caused at least in part by increased activation of the pain producing and inhibition of the pain-reducing circuits in the brain. This has lead some researchers to call it a ‘central sensitization' disorder.

FM is often triggered by trauma or injury or a flu-like illness and effects more women than men. Health Central has an excellent FM site. There is no 'cure' but new drugs have been recently approved for the disorder and more are reportedly on the way.
