My rheumatologist wants me to start on methotrexate medication
Would like to no if anyone else is on it and the outcome
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.
I just got my second opinion
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?

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.
Is this a fibromyalgia “thing?” Like, aside from my awesome burning mouth that comes and goes, along with that, when it occurs, I feel like I cant talk properly. I stumble over my words and just dont even want to talk period. It is the most bizarre thing. It’s almost like my tongue is too big for my mouth. And my mouth tongue feels sore and tired. 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
