> Not panic attacks, but I had an experience that might possibly be related. Last August, I had an injury, fell and hit my chin, causing a whiplash-type neck injury. That triggered post-traumatic fibromyalgia. I did experience a very unusual period of euphoria (a few hours long) the evening before I first began to develop the flu-like fibromyalgia symptoms. (Of course, I thought it was flu, and it took several months be be properly diagnosed, but that's another story.) The euphoria was something I had never experienced quite that way before, and does seem to me to be related to whatever chemical or other changes in my brain turned on the fibromyalgia.

Hmm. What was the euphoria like? Did you have any other sensations along with it? I usually get pretty spacey and sometimes things look a little off (or I even have visual or auditory illusions).

Do feel free to vent about your problems getting a proper diagnosis - I'm sure that's something that a lot of us can relate to!

How does one treat fibro, anyway? I don't know exactly what it is, although it sounds (superficially anyway) like it might sort of be similar to what I have (depression, anxiety, sleep problems, chronic pain).
