I'm wondering if its possible to have not dystonia and fibromyalgia. My neurologist has recently told me he didn't think my diagnosis of fibromyalgia is accurate. He mentioned that he believes that I have chronic pain disorder and not fibro. Though today I had to see a new Dr about my blood pressure. She listened to my symptoms and asked me if I had ever been diagnosed with fibro. I'm now so confused. I was diagnosed with fibro 8 years ago.
HD; I would also guess that Fibromyalgia is so much more common, But you would think a Neurologist would have some way of really figuring it out more than the GP doctor.As long as you get some relief from whatever I would not worry alot about it either way they are treated much the same not a lot they can do but treat symptoms. Do you get the twisting of muscles like cramps etc muscle feels like tied in knots? And the legs and feet the pin type prickling moderate to severe pain when your up and about or just sitting around then I would say it is the first. If it were just a pain issure something would have happend at some point to cause the pain.Because pain is a symptom of something that has happend and stays around the same area not all the time it can travel but not like the Fibromyalgia etc.I would not even put a lot of thought into it as long as your getting some relief from the discomfort I still lean to the orig diagnosis it just comes out of no where and can be quite severe as you know.And if the Neurologist insist than have him prove it somehow there must be test but bottom line is pain is pain. Just think about it you would know better than the doctors serious.
I'm sorry you're going through this.
Fibromyalgia and Chronic Psin Sundrome are often used interchangeably, depending on what your doctor calls it. My suggestion would be to see a Rheumatologist, as they typically can diagnose Fibromyalgia more accurately than a neurologist or a GP.
