Misdiagnosis maybe

Posted by lilbear

   I was diagnosed a couple years ago with Fibromyalgia/CFS.  I have a feeling the Dr. might be wrong.  I have 2 aunts on my dads side of the family that have Lupus.  I never got the butterfly rash but have all the other symptoms including slight edema of my bowel, spleen and liver.  I am on pain meds but they really do nothing for me. (Fentynal and Celebrex).  I also have Asthma, thyroid (hyper) and chronic hypertension.  My last blood work up.  I had high white count(actually the past 10 years my white count has been only slightly elevated). Protein in my urine, Anemia, Magnesium, Calcium and Potassium deficiencies.  I am now (past year) have been getting this horrible pain in both arms.  More like my arm muscles from shoulder to wrist are contracting or tightening Only when I'm tired.  And any time I relax weather in bed or on the couch or chair I get sever muscle jerking not slight twitching my body actually jumps.  I am at a loss.  I really don't know what to do.  I have been going back and forth to dr. about chronic pain and fatigue for the last 20 years.  Any suggestions ?????
