Older therapies: From your description, I believe you do have Parkinson's, but you also may have a REM Sleep Disorder, and early Lewy Body Dementia. Until all gets clarified, would suggest vigorous Physical Therapy which was used in Soviet Union years ago when medicine was scarce. Would also suggest visit to the nearest medical school to get second opinion. (Unfamiliar with how Ireland handles this.)

Criteria: A diagnosis of fibromyalgia should be made based on the american college of rheumatology 1990 criteria: at least 11/18 defined tender points (requires full body exam of those 18 sites), pain above & below the waist, both left & right, for more than 3-6 months, other associated symptoms and other similar conditions must first be ruled out. Consider 2nd opinion with a rheumatologist or physiatrist.

Fibromyalgia is the number one most overly, and incorrectly, diagnosed condition. It is used by many when they are confused. It is a real but rare entitty that simply doesn't explain most ailments, like yours. Seek second, and if needed, third opinions.

NO: Hepatitis b shot given.Did you give tylenol (acetaminophen) for pain? Cold compress for swelling? The reaction is normal for baby shot. He will be ok soon.
