Exercise Equipment Recommendation?

Exercise Equipment Recommendation?

Im trying to regain some control again, the fibro and meds have graciously added at least 70lbs pretty much all in my belly since all this started, and i cant stand it anymore. Ive found aquasizes and love it and have some success with yoga at home, but my balance isnt great and im so big the poses are hard. Does anyone have recommendations about equipment to invest in that i could zone out on and can gentle enough even for some of the not good days? Treadmill? Elliptical? Others? Thanks!!

Bacterial Vaginosis

Bacterial Vaginosis

A bit embarrassed to be asking about this but do any of my female friends get this recurring horrid infection? Do you have any tips or advice? I bought some Actimel and im going to buy some pessaries tomorrow. I get it every time im intimate with my boyfriend without fail and its ruining my life along with everything else. Is it more common because of our immune systems?

Does Anyone Else Have Fatigue As Their Primary Symptom With Fibro?

Does Anyone Else Have Fatigue As Their Primary Symptom With Fibro?

I see lots of discussion and helpful suggestions about dealing with the pain of fibro, and I do appreciate those. However, for me the fatigue is the most debilitating part. Some days I wake up feeling decent, but just taking a shower wears me out and I need a nap.

Progression

Progression

Has anyone that has fibro only progressed. I know doctor's say you don't progress but I'm wondering different... Like has anyone gone from being able to walk to needing a walker or wheelchair, things like that? I think the disease progresses myself because I think I've had this for some years and now in the past year it's gotten to where I can't work and I'm in pain every day.

Doctor In Los Angeles

Doctor In Los Angeles

Hey
I just moved to Los Angeles from Denmark and are looking to try some new treatment for my Fibromyalgia. In Denmark they don't know much about Fibromyalgia which is why I am excited to try new treatments in LA. Does anyone know a good doctor in Los Angeles who knows about fibromyalgia treatments? Maybe someone who has knowledge about LDN. Has anyone tried LDN and does it work?

Painful Feet?

Painful Feet?

I'm trying to figure out how to describe the way my feet feel. It's a combination of things. Some sharp pain and then they also feel like they are tight.. I think I have heel Spurs, but not confirmed yet 🤷 and I do constantly stretch and wiggle my toes and feet 🤷
And my ankles and calves always hurt( which I guess could be all the extra weight) Can any relate??? Suggestions ( besides the obvious)🤨😛 Thanks in advance ❤️

What Type Of Doctor Treats Your Fibromyalgia?

What Type Of Doctor Treats Your Fibromyalgia?

In Michigan, I saw a rheumatologist. I am new to California and need to get connected with someone for fibromyalgia, I called my G.P. and they said to see a specialist. The insurance company referred me to pain specialists and one rheumatologist - called rheum and they said they only treat immunological issues, not fibro. I am a bit put off by pain specialists but maybe I am stereotyping. What do you recommend?

General practitioner? Rheumatologist? Pain Specialist? Psychiatrist? Psychologist… read more

Swelling On One Side Of Body

Swelling On One Side Of Body

I've heard that most fibro patients deal with some swelling at one time or another. I have had a few instances where I feel one part of my body is swollen, but lately it feels as if my entire right side (foot, leg, arm, face) is swollen.

This started last week when I noticed my foot was visibly swollen, it went down within an hour. However over the last week it has come and gone and now it's more than just my foot. I've had a bunch of tests but everything is either fine or I'm still awaiting… read more
