Share Something New You Have Learned About Yourself Since Being Diagnosed With Fibromyalgia.

I have discovered that energy management is key to being able to live with Fibro. I read so much more and have learned many new things. I try hard to give back by sharing what I’ve learned so other can benefit.

Antidepressants help with the serotonin for the brain chemistry. Neurotin, or generic is Gabapentin, for the fireworks that go off in my legs, swimming keeps me able to move and exercise without a lot of pain. I am able to take pain killers. Rest when the body says rest, force myself to get out of bed everyday. This disease is a dicotomy of its own. If u don't move, u can't move. Find support where u can, this blog is wonderful. Fibro fog, just have to deal with it. Try to go outside if only to sit on a step, or a swing, or a chair. The sunshine helps promote vit d which helps ur3 immune system. Seek an attitude of gratitude for what u can do. Love yourself!

@A MyFibroTeam Member I have discovered that Fibromyalgia tends to start gradually and symptom last increase over a period of months and even years. In my case I believe it started in my late teens early 20s with TMJ. Then headaches and migraines began and after a period of years hypo-thyroid. Over the years different diagnoses led to my eventual diagnosis of Fibromyalgia in 2009.
