Hi all hope your day is going well. According to all the doctors i have seen they say fibromyalgia is not a progressive illness. Has anyone else been told this? If so do you agree?
Doctors and Rheumatologist have absolutely no idea about Fibromyalgia they still seem to think it is all in our heads.
Myself personally I believe that Fibromyalgia is progressive that it affects more of your body with wide spread pain, as well as causing problems with other areas of your body such as your feet and legs, weakness in your arms and legs, hands and fingers.
Wished there was more research into Fibromyalgia I totally understand that they put more research into different types of Cancers but it would be great to see research into Fibromyalgia and a diagnostic tests for Fibromyalgia.
So very very frustrating indeed.
Yeah mine had definately got worse. Whether age affects it or not im not sure but it seems strange that we all have it and we all feel that it does get worse yet the doctors that dont have it say that it doesnt 🤔 surely we cant all be wrong. X
Fibromyalgia is not considered a progressive disease. Symptoms may grow worse over time, but there is no predictable disease course. Most often, people with fibromyalgia experience disease flares, when symptoms become more severe, and periods of remission, when symptoms lessen or disappear.
My symptoms have definitely worsened over time.
Mine has been progressing to not wanting to do anything at times... i have days when i can do lots, clean, cook, eat, sing, play with my cats and daughter and even dance. To days when i am in no condition to talk even. I am struggling to keep working, it has definetely progressed.
