Do You Know Anyone Who Has Fibromyalgia As Their Only Health Problem?

Do You Know Anyone Who Has Fibromyalgia As Their Only Health Problem?

I have not met one person in my life or on line that does not have fibro along with chronic fatigue and many other diseases & am curious if you have?

Same here my friend...it's hard aye...I'm blessed to wake each morning but lay there for a bit ..the worst is the morning getting out of bed after a long restless night of aches and pain...once I get moving it's a little better...how but you...depression is part of it ..it's tough when you want to be normal with no moans and groans when you do just about everything. ...hope you have a better day and nice to meet everyone on here..it's don't feel so alone with this fibro...

Hi Cindy. ..I certainly don't know a lot about my and everyone's fibro..but a thought.....being diagnosed with fibro I also was diagnosed with mctd...which is mixed connective tissue disease...I'm wondering if that is what causes fibro....it causes the cells to attack good tissue thinking it's bad..and maybe that's why we have fibro...it's not life threatening but it sure makes sense to why are joints and body feel so sore all the time....just a thought....

Actually fibro causes most of our symptoms other than other things not associated with fibro of course................I refer to fibro as the HOST to all my heavy wooden crosses............before I was diagnosed in 1989 I could pretty much leap tall buildings in a single bound LOL !!!!!!!! Now I have to take elevator rides LOL !!!!!!!!!! Fibro is my main problem...........and it causes CFS............plus other fun ailments and symptoms...........I have one more thing wrong with me but it had nothing to do with fibro..........surprisingly. Just do the best you can do and always remember we have fibro, it doesn't have us..............it just likes our company. Blessings to all !!!!!!!!

My list is long as well. Fibro is affecting a lot of areas in my body. This is why I love this site, I know I am not alone!

No. no one!! Unfortunately there are many other secondary diagnoses that come along FM !! I for one have IC (short for a very long diagnosis with my bladder)!! And of course IBS. And the list goes on. And on. And on!!!
