I just got this link from a friend who has fibro:
What do you all think?
I think I'll keep an eye on this and the website: https://www.womenshealth.gov/publications/our-p... for anything that might come up. That's a government website, which might not be much but it should have what is really going on in research. I hope!
This wouldn't surprise one bit as all my pain started in my foot and leg ! I was 46 and 7st 4oz and had arterial disease ( so they claimed) after several surgeries I've been left in more pain than I was at the beginning, at least it was bearable and I could work! Now I can barely get out of bed in a morning because the pain has now gone into my arm and hand shoulder, it's horrific pain too! I feel like I just want to die 😢
It's a possibility. But it did come from Yahoo News so I'm going to wait until it's also announced in the mainstream media. Yahoo is my home page and its news sounds really wild sometimes. I did read that scientists have found very specific changes in the MRI scans of people with fibromyalgia...about 95% I think it was. The comments following that story which I found on Google earlier this week for a search on "the latest research", etc. If this is true it could help Drs in diagnosing this disease.
Interesting, am waiting for confirmation before celebrating.
It seems that way often, as if medical breakthroughs and new treatments take a long time but when you look at medical history, it is pretty amazing how far we have come in the last 20 years. Think of all the new procedures and treatments for all types of things that were not there 25 years ago. We have minimally invasive surgeries now due to the use of robotics, HIV combined drug therapies, Statins, insulin pumps and glucose monitoring, needle free injection technology, even electronic records rather than paper which should make it much easier to get all our medical information to the doctor so as to avoid dangerous medical mishaps such as a drug interaction. These are just a small few so although it feels like a long time, maybe our cure or relief at least will be sooner and is just around the corner.
