Fibromyalgia ‘What’? That’s what I said when I was diagnosed with it.
In 2013 I had a blood clot on my brain which cause three Crescendo TIA’s (mini strokes). I found out that It was all caused because I have Carotid Artery disease. I had to have an urgent operation on my right carotid artery to have a stenosis (narrowing) removed due to the fact that I only had 10% blood flow and there were fears that I might have further strokes.
Some months later I was suffering with wide spread pain throughout my body, slurred speech and bumping into things. A number of visits to the hospital, later. I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. I still have a number of the symptoms listed in the article but at least I can deal with it now I know what it is. I am back to working full time and writing in my free time. I found the below article that explains a little about this weird illness.
