Possibly starting a youtube channel.

Im strongly considering starting a channel where i talk about living my life as someone with a chronic illness. Basically try and educate people on what fibro is, and MY personal reality and truths. Would anyone be interested in watching something like that?

I agree that it gets worse. Doctors say it doesn't. I have had increasing symptoms all this past summer and fall.

Hi, is there anybody who has pain in just their neck,shoulders, upper back and upper arms?

I’ve not used this sight before so hello to all you sufferers. Why I’m asking is because I’m not sure if I’ve got fibromyalgia because you have several parts of your body hurting I can see from the research I’ve done.
Thank you
Look forward to hearing from anyone.

Has anyone ever had an allergic reaction that then kicked off a bad pain flare?

I woke up with hives in the morning (I'm blaming the fact that I slept in a new nightshirt without washing it - probably a fixative or something that didn't mix well with night sweats). And then my day descended into possibly the worst flare I've ever had.

Has anyone experienced anything like this?

Does fibromyalgia affect the way you heal after a surgery? I seem to take alot longer to heal and have alot more pain.

I just had my thumb joint reconstructed due to osteoarthritis and had carpal tunnel release done at the same time. I as m experiencing alot of nerve pain in my hand, not only where my incisions are, but all over. Could this be from my fibro? My occupational therapist, thinks that it might be.

Small Tender Lumps?

Small tender lumps pea size on upper right leg and left side of abdomen. I've had an abdominal CT Scan that came back clear. I can feel two on the left side of my stomach and two on my upper right inner leg. My PCP says I'm just a "lumpy person" and they are cysts. Ive had two doctors look and they dont seem concerned as they don't change in size. They never go away though?

sun exposure

Just came back from a cruise to Bermuda (lucky me!) and I am having the worst flair I have had in years. I got a bad burn in one spot on my chest complete with blisters and I have a feeling that inflammation triggered this mess. I was being polite and chatty and delayed my sunscreen application. The migraine won’t quit and I can barely walk. Whole body hurts as you all well know. Trying to do chores but must keep stopping. At least kitty helps! Any suggestions? I am usually so careful.

Does anyone else get fibro flare symptoms from sumatriptan ( imitrex) for migraines?

I try not to delay taking this helpful migraine relief but when I do give in it is like a flare in a pill. Crazy! Often it is worse on the opposite side of the migraine. Sometimes fibro mysteries are fascinating, sometimes just ...stupid.
