  2. If it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck… Sure looks like fibromyalgia to me.

    1. I also have Fibromyalgia, plus other auto immune diseases and disorders. My daughter has had similar symptoms of what Danielle has seemed to be having… Plus thoughts of possibly Lupus… Which gives you pain weakness and tired all the time… I have had extreme stress which makes symptoms worse headaches and now symptoms of palpitations and I get out of breath and dizzy… So was worried about heart issues… These things can happen at any age… I also had Cancer and had to have a hysterectomy years back… Now I am a widow and have even more stress. The body does weird things when we are stressed. My prayers go out for Danielle I just dont know why it takes so long for diagnoses… Took many years to find out my Father had Parkinsons and my mother with her illnesses before she had a stint put in and was finally diagnosed with two Auto Immune diseases… I have arthritis like her…I hope they diagnose and help Danielle for her sake and her large sweet family…

  3. Could she have ME/CFS I have it and similar aches and pains. Also suffer fatigue if doing too much physic activities like Danielle suffers after activities
