    Do I have Fibro?
    julietud posted:
    I have had so much blood work done - all negative. Doctor thinks I may have fibro but not sure. Do you have to have pain upon touch? I dont. But I do have all over body pain, fatigue, blurred vision, bad stomach during flare ups, and more. I have flare ups now more often. Alcohol and excercise intolerance too! I cant take meds - I hate side effects. Trying a holostic approach now.

    What med diid they put u on? I am staying away from meds for now, too many side effects. I have gone on a gluten free diet for few months. They think i could have a food interolance which wouldnt show in blood work if not high enough. keep in touch, let me know how the med works. Good luck.
