May 30, 2018 · Complex Diagnosis Reshapes a College Student’s Future

Hi! I really liked your story. I was very interested because I was diagnosed with sleep apnea (since about 15 years ago) and lately, let's say since about 6 months ago, I have been noticing that my body aches all over, but specially after I walk, or after I cook. It is an unbearable pain all over my body, not only in the joints. So that, I'm unable to exercise because the next day I won't be able to move freely because of the pain, and therefore I'm gaining weight consistently, which makes me very uncomfortable and there's nothing I can do to lose the weight. I'd like you to tell me what kind of test should I ask my doctor to perform in order to find out if it fibromyalgia what I have, or what can I tell her. Thank you.
