No it does not seem to be Fibro cause there is lots of pain and usually to be really diagonose with fibro usually you have to see a specialist and did she check the special point. And it take more then one visit to the doctor to determin that If i was you i would go see a 2nd doctor and see what he will say if you did that much exercise before maybe you have a burnout Anyway i would not leave it at just that i hope you will find what it is really is and goodluck
I'm not a doctor but my daughter is and we both agree that this does not sound like fibro. More like chronic fatigue syndrome or a huge number of other problems but with fibro pain is the #1 symptom, especially in the trigger points and fatigue is only a stepsister.

No, it does NOT sound like fibromyalgia. Granted, I'm not a medical practioner...
The main diagnostic tool in fibro is the trigger points. There are 18 of them, and in order to be diagnosed with fibro, at least 11 out of the 18 have to trigger pain responses. Not painful, NOT fibro. I'd skip the Savella and ask for a second opinion--maybe a referral to a rheumatologist or a neurologist, who are specialists who deal with fibromyalgia on a daily basis. And I'd think seriously about finding another Primary Care. Fibro used to take up to six years for a diagnosis... granted, that was because no one including the doctors believed it was real-- but it sounds like yours has gone too far the other way, and is writing the issue off as fibro instead of following through on eliminating the other possibilities...
A sudden abnormal fatigue response like that can be a simple thing, or it can be something a lot more serious than fibro-- I am a bit worried that this needs to be followed up on...
DO get another opinion, PLEASE!
"The real secret of success is enthusiasm..." thanks, Walter P. Chrysler. I believe it. That's what I want in my life--to give my imagination a chance, to live with energy and enthusiasm! P.S. I looked up enthusiasm, and it says the root words mean God within... interesting...!
Ralph Waldo Emerson said 'Life belongs to the energetic.' But you don't have to be frenetic and hyper--some energy is quiet and steady, like a heartbeat... and that works too! LOL
One of the things that I've always loved about SP is that no matter what type of group/support you are looking for, you can certainly find it!
Hello team, My Dr has just told me that I have fibromyalgia. I am not in any pain, which seems to be the MAIN symptom, so I'm not really sure that I agree with her BUT she did a full blood workup and everything else is fine. I went in to complain about a sudden, extreme case of fatigue. I'm a runner and usually run 4-5 days a week. I also do strength training with dumbells at home and for the last few weeks, I've barely had energy to stand up. I actually did ST a few days before making an appt to see my Dr and I felt like I was going to pass out and the feeling didn't go away for a couple of hours.
Anyways, I'm trying Savilla for a month and we will see if there is any difference.
My question to you, oh wise ones, does this sound like fibro to you? Anyone else diagnosed with it that doesn't suffer from pain?
