hello everyone i'm new at this but was wanting to talk to other people about fibromyalgia and the symptoms that other people have
Hi. I just joined, too. This could prove to be a great network for everyone.
Hi, I am new here too. I was officially diagnosed with fibromyalgia in 2001, but it took me years to be diagnosed. I also have chronic fatigue syndrome. I've done a great deal of research and if anyone wants to talk about FM or CFS Im ready.
I have had fibro for 10 yrs. It is cyclic and when I get into a crisis it can last weeks. I get pain esp in my upper neck area which then causes severe headache for weeks. Extreme fatigue. Ensues. I was diagnosed in the fibro. Clinic in Boston mass. The doctor I saw wrote one of the first books about fibrous. When they thought it was a trashcan diagnosis. I do not want to make this about me so if you have any questions please let me know I truly have. Been through. All with fibrous. Jodi
Honestly, every time I get a pain I have to wonder if it'll stick with me, or just pass for good. I have fibro, chronic intercostal neuralgia, & chronic fatigue. I try to focus on just one day at a time.
Did you recently get diagnosed?
Dear Chelle, I am yet another fibro patient, aged 58, diagnosed two + years ago. There are local pain discussion groups but nothing specifically fibro, and it's lonely when others "don't get it." Apart from sometimes feeling so VERY exhausted, even my loving family members do not seem to understand. One can't wear a sign but some days I need one with the message, "I hurt and am tired." Try to identify one or two close friends who will agree to reach out when you signal.
