Are you aware of the fibromyalgia petition?

There is a petition that is going to Parliament in the UK in a few days. We need as many signatures on it as possible. Have you heard of it? If so, have you signed it? It makes no difference where you live, you can still sign it. If we get fibro recognised as a Disability here, other countries will follow. Please take a minute to sign it.....

Have any post menopausal women tried Divigel for relief of some of our symptoms?

Had Gyn appt yesterday and realized that my symptoms have become much worse after coming off hormones. Divigel is a bio-identical hormone gel and I will be starting mine tomorrow. It should make a huge difference!

Can anyone else not tolerate earrings?

I get what almost seems to be an infection when I wear them. Any kind, hypoallergenic, 24K gold, whatever. I do have somewhat sensitive skin but was wondering if this is common among fibro sufferers.

Does anyone get a recurring taste of infection?

It tastes and smells like I have a bad cold or sinus infection, but I have neither. It has been with me since November. Recently diagnosed with fibromyalgia. Just wondering if anyone else has had this symptom.

Thanks, but that doesn't appear to be the case. The taste comes and goes also. It isn't constant.
