I went to the emergency room twice with slurring speech and nerves in the left side of my neck and head causing numbness and both arms having numbness and tingling in them and I was dismissed by the doctor both times, all he said was "It's just a fibromyalgia flare up." I don't think having numbness & slurred speech has anything to do with fibro, I have spinal curvature that is causing some of the pain, a pinched nerve, and a sprained knee causing the rest. I was told by someone with fibro that it's not fibro causing this.
