Wow, Bakergurl, we have so many similarities - IBS, leg cramps and possibly fibro. It's funny, I had all the sensitive areas that they test for but I don't get tired. My sister has fibro and chronic fatigue. She will literally fall asleep at a moment!
For my leg cramps and spasms my doctor gave me a muscle relaxer. The fibro is still up in the air. They want to see how I am with the weight off because in my case, not yours since you are thin, he wonders if the added weight is causing me pain.
In the meantime I am saying I don't have fibro - I don't want it!!! I will get the weight off and take it from there. I am hoping a lot will improve with my weight loss.
Good luck at the doctors.
In the meantime before you go to the doctors - track your foods - if your potassium or magnesium is low that can also cause cramping. They most likely will check for that first anyhow. Mine is always extremely low so I take supplements and TRY to eat foods high in both.
