Sep 21, 2017 · fibromyalgia pain in Chronic Pain

Hi, I am also diagnosed with fibro. When my symptoms first appeared I could barely walk or leave my house. I had just graduated from nursing school and my family basically made me take a job i was offered because I was scared about not being able to function. Thankfully the job and new location afforded me the opportunity to be seen at Mayo’s fibro clinic where I was started on effexor (I have not taken pain pills for my fibro to date) and attended a 3 day course on pain management. The medication massively increased my quality of life and I know I have the clinic here to support me should I have a set back. My life is not perfect, I’m fatigued most of the time and I still can’t work out like I used to but it’s better than it was in the beginning. I hope you find something that works for you. This is a syndrome than can be very isolating. Are you in any clubs like a reading group or the likes?

Jul 1, 2017 · Fibromyalgia or Lupus in Chronic Pain

Hello all, I was diagnosed with fibro 2.5 years ago. I have some concerns that I may have Lupus too but I know this is a hard diagnosis. Any fibro folks with the same concern or an eventual Lupus diagnosis?
