Avatar f tn I didn't have any digestive problems though. Maybe it's just kidney stones? So yeah, I was absolutely fine from August until the middle of December. I was zipping about and enjoying life, really appreciating health!

I stayed in bed for 2 weeks and felt fine, so I went back to work after christmas and collapsed.

Fibromyalgia is not the dominant symptom, but her arterial pressure dropped to 7-8 with txt and never came back, fainting is recurent, exhaustion is daily present, brain fog, and sometimes she experiences breathing apnea and giddiness. But she is extraordinary and has a steel mind, even if we take life day by day.
