I got injections into my jaw. It was locked. Be careful chewing food. Put smaller amounts in your mouth. Concentrate on how you chew.

Disability/Work

Disability/Work

Feel like I’m in a really complex spot right now. I’ve been accepted to be represented by a lawyer for disability, and the agency’s creditably/reviews are great.

My dilemma is, I know it takes around 3-5 months (from what I’ve heard from ppl they’ve represented) but tbh it’s getting cold, I have no appropriate clothes for the new season, I’m a 26 year old woman, I need *things* in general. I’ve been contemplating a part time job, despite the pain, because let’s be realistic—who’s gonna get me… read more

Question / Poll Time! EBV / Mono

Question / Poll Time! EBV / Mono

Curious to know how many of you have had mono or Epstein Barr Virus in your lifetime? Yes/No/No Idea?

I had mono/EBV at 16 or so in High school. I missed a month of school and was hospitalized for two weeks. I did a huge paper on it for biology class the following year. Of course, not realizing that it may have significance later in my life, I wish I'd hung onto that paper!

I've been hearing and reading more about this connection to fibro lately. Does anyone have any studies they can refer to… read more

Burning Pain In Bottom Of One Side Of Heel

Burning Pain In Bottom Of One Side Of Heel

Yesterday I started experiencing an intense burning pain in the bottom of one side of my heel that is so bad I can't put weight on my heel (I have to walk on the ball of my foot, which I know will cause problems for the rest of my body overcompensating). I think it's nerve pain but it's a new symptom for me, has anyone else experienced this? I'm wondering if it could be nerve entrapment? I think it's unlikely to be plantar fasciitis because that's typically characterised by a "stabbing or dull… read more

Painful Feet?

Painful Feet?

I'm trying to figure out how to describe the way my feet feel. It's a combination of things. Some sharp pain and then they also feel like they are tight.. I think I have heel Spurs, but not confirmed yet 🤷 and I do constantly stretch and wiggle my toes and feet 🤷
And my ankles and calves always hurt( which I guess could be all the extra weight) Can any relate??? Suggestions ( besides the obvious)🤨😛 Thanks in advance ❤️

Swelling On One Side Of Body

Swelling On One Side Of Body

I've heard that most fibro patients deal with some swelling at one time or another. I have had a few instances where I feel one part of my body is swollen, but lately it feels as if my entire right side (foot, leg, arm, face) is swollen.

This started last week when I noticed my foot was visibly swollen, it went down within an hour. However over the last week it has come and gone and now it's more than just my foot. I've had a bunch of tests but everything is either fine or I'm still awaiting… read more
