View Full Version : Any Ideas what this is?

Hello all, been around here for a while but I'm mostly a lurker. I have a question about some weird symptoms I've been having. Most times when I sneeze and sometimes when I cough bad, my muscles seize up and hurt very bad for a few minutes. The pain then goes away but my muscles feel very weak and tired after. It seems to affect a good chunk of my muscles, the big ones more than others though (chest, shoulders, biceps, legs etc.) Has anyone ever had anything like this or does anyone know anything about this. I told my rheumy but he's pretty much useless and said it wasn't a lupus symptom and that I should see my gp. Thanks for the help.

[i]:D Hi, sounds like fibromyalgia. It effects muscles alot. Lots of people with lupus have FMS too. Ask ypur GP. Look the symptoms up, it explains better than I can. Hope this helps!
