Fibromyalgia Diaries and Support for Newbies

This blog is about my new journey with fibromyalgia…

Anxiety & Foot Pain

with one comment

I get anxiety coupled with shortness of breath and heel/foot pain frequently.  I’ve noticed its usually when I eat a lot of sugar, during PMS, or when I eat too much starch or have caffeine.  I also feel this tightening in my temporal area.  Sort of like a migraine is coming on or I’m getting tinnitus (ringing in the ears).   There was a few months back when I got rid of all of my symptoms, I was taking a fist full of vitamins for about 30 days, including Sam-e….maybe it was the Sam-e…but it still could have been because of a number of other things.  My muscle weakness remained, but reaction to the rain, foot pain, osteoarthritis, etc all went away.

So now, I am trying out Sam-e again.

Its weird, when I have foot pain, I also have anxiety and shortness of breath.  I am just now reading that I am supposed to have low dopamine/serotonin levels with this fibromyalgia and I should be taking a serotonin supplement.  I’m sure now that this deregulation is the culprit to my many of my symptoms!

I’ll keep you posted with the Sam-e usage outcome.
