Aug 10, 2016 · Autoimmune Diseases and Fatigue in Autoimmune Diseases

Thank you! So far fibromyalgia is my only diagnosis………heart, thyroid, anemia, respitory all checked out fine. I am currently in search of a new doctor in the area we have recently moved to, so maybe more issues can be found/treated. I will ask if a sleep study might assist me/dr in discovering what else is at root. Once again, thanks!

Thank you for your story! Among everything else, I too am affected by extreme temps. We recently moved from the humid midwest to the dryness of the Rockies. The humidity was difficult for me no matter what the temp was. I am currently lining up a new dr for where we have moved to, so maybe more help will come my way. Best of wishes to you!

I completely understand your pain & confusion on what is going on. 2 yrs prior to my diagnosis I had shingles all under my hair on the back of my head,,,,it too was excruciating. Best wishes on getting in to see a neurologist & finding out what is causing your pain….there are many possibilities out there :/

Aug 9, 2016 · SSDI for Fibromyalgia in Just Want to Talk

Has anyone out there had success with filing for SSDI for Fibromyalgia? I will have my ALJ hearing this Fall 2016. I recently hired an attorney to assist me. Ever since I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia my life has changed considerably. I had to leave work as an accounting assoc. 2 1/2 yrs ago. Early on in my diagnosis my dr had told me there was nothing much he could do for me other than starting me on Cymbalta & eventually prescribing Flexeril as well. I see my dr once a yr to see how things are progressing or stabilizing etc. Due to this lack of doctoring I do not have those quarterly dr notes on my health that SS would prefer. Any suggestions that would benefit e being able to explain to a Judge etc just had bad off I am & feel? Thank you!

With my fibromyalgia my extreme fatigue is at the root of my mental issues I deal with now. Short term memory not like it used to be, inability to carry on lengthy conversations/discussions, in ability to handle any form of stress, disassociation esp when out in public, & so many other tidbits that come back to my belief if I could get a strong arm the fatigue the mental issues would go away. Any suggestions out there for me?

I too experience this daily with my fibromyalgia among so many other issues.

Aug 9, 2016 · Burning skin on waking in Skin Health

I have been experiencing sunburn pain upon waking every morning for over 2 years. I have fibromyalgia & this nerve sensation of sunburn pain without being in the sun is one of many daily issues I deal with. Maybe talk to a neurologist to see what is causing your nerves to give you this sensation. I hope this is helpful! 🙂
