I just started it last week. The doctor told me it will take over six weeks before you can tell if it's working or not.

Does your area help/hurt/no impact on your fibro?

I've heard varying things about how weather, altitude, etc can affect fibro. So I'm wondering, where do you or have you lived, and did you notice any effect on your symptoms?

Personally, I live in northeast PA, always have. I've noticed I have problems with humidity, when storms roll through, and esp since I have Raynauds I'm cold sensitive.

Shooting Hip Pain

For the last few months I’ve developed an unrelenting shooting hip pain in my left hip only. My left side is my side that constantly gives me trouble to begin with but this shooting pain is get worse. I used to feel it only when sitting but now I feeling it when laying down too. It’s not along my butt but literally running right down my hip. It’s not a sore muscle feeling but definitely nerve related. Anyone get a shooting pain in their hip?

Does your Fibromyalgia cause muscle pain OR weakness??

Guys, could someone please please help me. I want to know if I truly have Fibromyalgia or something else. I have been diagnosed with it, but a lot of people say they suffer with pain whereas I suffer with weakness rather than a sense of pain. What is the pain supposed to feel like exactly?
I'm unsure what the difference should be. I'm chronically fatigued and my stomach and legs always get swollen, but i feel I'm more weak than pain... like I wouldn't say I… read more

Can FM pain affect the brain?

I have noticed lately that I am finding it hard to concentrate and sometimes my sentences come out backwards at first I thought I was just tired but it is happening more often. There are some days I feel like I am going "crazy" I can't take pain meds when I am working plus I work all different times the only way is if I gave 2days off together what to do.

I feel like i cant even remember basic words anymore either. I literally said something today to my boss and I just ran out of words and literally… read more
