I have severe pain and muscle spasms, is it fibromyalgia?

I have severe pain and muscle spasms with a drop in barometer pressure. Then when pressure returns to close to normal my body is sore and still spasms. I have been told I have fibromyalgia. I do have pain on a every day basis and migraines. I just can’t emphasize enough on how much pain I am in when pressure drops or with wind. Dr’s look at me like “oh really “. I’m seriously getting so distraught. I can barely function. I’m a RN and love my job but I’m coming to the conclusion it’s really effecting my job. All I can do is work ( and that’s every day struggle, sometimes I cry on the way home because I’m so tired and in pain). I take all the meds related to Fibromyalgia and still no relief. Blood work shows no inflammatory problems. Dr ‘s say must be Fibromyalgia. I am just asking if anyone else has any ideas of what could be going on. Thank you. Desperate

So sorry to hear about your problem..

Can you please tell that what all tests have you undergone?
-What is your age and are you having any regular medications?
-Have you undergone tests for calcium, magnesium,potassium, Vitamin B1, B5, B6, also muscle enzymes like CPK, aldolase, LDH, ALT, AST?
Also an Electromyogram and thyroid function should be done..

Hi,my opinion you should consider minerals lab tests as calcium,magnesium potassium before going further ,blood pressure disturbance with muscle cramps can indicate a mineral imbalance before fibromyalgia.

Can you do a urine analysis and check potassium levels and creatine levels
I really think it can be simply a kidney problem or electrolyte imbalance
Good luck
