a flare up in the works?

I am trying to decide what is going on with my body...  I hurt all over more then anywhere else but that isn't new.  I can't think clearly...also not new.  I have extremely blurred vision, a headache, I have a phantom neural sensations like skin crawling, itching etc.  I don't have a rash, haven't  changed meds so it isn't a allergic reaction.  To make sure I took some Zyrtec and when that didn't work some Benedryl. 

I went to bed at midnight last night and slept till 11am but I am tired, bone weary tired.  I do good sitting at the computer or on the sofa watching TV.   My legs ache and spasm and my feet cramping up at night is driving me nuts and waking me up!   I have so much I need to get done but...  I can't prod myself into doing anything.  I am either hot or cold.  As I am sitting here typing I feel like I am outside in the sun!  Such a sweaty and icky feeling!  I am not running a fever! 

Any idea what this could be?  I know sounds like Fibro or CFS...probably is but I haven't over done anything, I am taking my medications like I am suppose to but it isn't working...  If i don't show a difference by Tuesday I am definitely calling the doctor.  Something isn't right in my world!

I did not know that you had the disease. So is this 100% what you have? I am feeling "not well" too. I do not have a fever, but am washed-out since I took antibiotics for a fever I had about a month ago for Staph. I do not know what to do because I have tons of work to do.

I hope that you feeling better soon!

Hi
Just found you through Shozzy.
I've only just read your latest post but just had to tell you how much better I feel now that I have cut wheat and gluten out of my diet. I was sooooo tired and ached all the time, my hip was killing me to walk and the Dr sent me for loads of tests. Apparently there was nothing wrong, but honestly, since leaving the wheat and gluten out I do feel so much better.
I buy the Genius load from Tesco and really nice biscuits from Asda, you can get past and loads more so its not too bad.
Sometimes I miss stuff but its worth it to feel human again.
Maybe this won't work for you but just thought I'd let you know my story.
Hope you soon feel better.

By the way, my youngest son is a Theatre Sister (I think they call them charge nurses or something now) he loves his job.
