This has been a very busy week at work - my body isn’t so happy. My feet hurt even when I first get up in the morning. My left elbow hurts - it’s usually the first body part to experience pain.
What concerns me today though is that I’m struggling to speak properly. I’m getting words and letters mixed up like saying “baper pag” instead of “paper bag”. Does anyone else have this problem? It’s a bit scary.
This is not a question.
I wanted to take a moment to remind everyone that on this site and any site there are not good people. People who will Give you false hope n false medical advice. They will pretend to be people they are not.
Please do your own research. Weather they post a great sounding theory or send a link. There is a lot of fake stuff online. We all need to remember to do our own research. We need to do what is medically necessary for ourselves.

I believe pain can cause depression.
I belive that pain limits what you can do. With those limits comes self worth issues and can also cause isolation.
What are your thoughts on the subject?
After all WE are the EXPERTS !
When I was first diagnosed, I was exhausted and achey all over. Mostly in my back and knees and it would wax and wane. Now the pain has spread through my entire body including my wrists, ankles and feet. Every morning when I wake up I dread getting out of bed because I am so stiff and sore, my pain level is a 10. My back, shoulders and neck are extremely sore and tender ALL the time, and I need to rest with my heating pad a few times throughout the day. This was not the… read more
Hope this helps you explain your illness to your friends and family.
I want to let everyone know about Minocycline & what happened to my daughter.... Minocycline is a low-dose antibiotic and can be used to treat SKIN problems, so 3 years ago my daughter started taking it. She slowly developed symptoms that can mimic an autoimmune response, similar to Lupus & Fibromyalgia!! So, she had been getting worse & worse over the past 3 yrs; she & I feared she was getting Fibro! Her skin would hurt randomly, she was having nerve pain,… read more
Its like a sudden jabbing pain like someone has stabbed you with a pin or several pins. Its is so embarrassing when it happens and I have visitors. We can be talking away and suddenly I will jump up and shout OUCH!.
I feel such a fool, they must think I am nuts.
When my guest asks what's wrong I just reply I think I was stung by a wasp. Cos that's kind of what it feels like. Does anyone else experience this sudden random pain?
Did everyone notice that Finally the source code that uncovers the medical disease called fibromyalgia is available via an objective, multiple biomarker-based diagnostic test that has documented the altered immunology of the fibromyalgia patient.
Two separate medical studies were conducted at the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Chicago which investigated the uniqueness of the fibromyalgia patient. Via the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Chicago, Department… read more
Not a question(really)....I have felt like I need to vent for a few days now. I know myself and if I hold things too long I will explode and my mouth will too....I think in the 2 years I have been at my job I have told 1 person that I have Fibro, so nobody really knows. I never call in sick, but I know girls that will be sick with a sore throat or something and when they say "I felt like I was hit by a truck and couldn't get out of bed" I want to say "welcome to my world" When I'm… read more
Here is a link to an article about some of the side effects linked to common drugs given for Fibro (in the UK at least) I realise we all tolerate meds differently and if some mentioned here work for you, I don't mean to cause you unnecessary worry about side effects that are not bothering you. I'm not a doctor but I do know that Progabalin makes me worse!
A dear friend, a 40 year old woman living with Fibro sent me this info (she was diagnosed following the loss of… read more
