What is your daily average step count?

Hi guys I’m just wondering how much everyone else uses their legs, and daily steps seems like a good benchmarker.

Does this impact your pain? Is there a certain point where it changes from helpful to counterproductive?

I get a fairly high step count (Phone number can only be seen by MyFibroTeam users) when at work. I’m wondering if this is hurting me. It sure feels like it’s hurting me.

I’d love to hear from other people tho! How much do you walk, and are the results… read more

Anyone experience nausea regularly, lot of my symptoms have passed but now I have been having nausea, faint feelings for a week now, comes and goes. I went out of town in New Orleans in summer type weather for a weekend and felt fine and got back to Atlanta and it started again, not sure if the weather triggers it or not, also the soles of my feet and fingers sometimes get slightly numb and go away.

Does anyone else have a problem with finding medication that works?

I'm almost at my wits end with trying medications! I'm not a huge fan of taking pills to begin with as I've found myself repeatedly telling my doctor. Bless his heart, he really had no choice! He had to see what would work. But I have tried Tramadol, Neoproxine ( I think that's how you spell it ), Cymbalta, Lyrica, T3's , Advil.

Tramadol makes me vomit
Cymbalta increased my brain fog
Neoproxine was like taking candy
T3's same thing, like taking… read more

Leg pain

So about a few months ago my right leg would give me pains around my knee and it felt like I stepped wrong. Short/sharp pains and it would be fine. Now over the last week my whole leg hurts, tingling, twitching, and fatigued. Feels like my calf is tight. Anyone experience one limb worse than the other? My other leg is tender and fatigued as well but my right is just horrible.

At What Point Do you Question Fibro

Hello all! I was diagnosed by the Mayo Clinic with Fibromyalgia/CF and Centralized Sensitization Syndrome. My understanding from the medical professionals there is that CSS is an umbrella type term that encompasses Fibro and CF, etc. To be clear, I was not diagnosed with ME which I've read appears to be a more severe type of CFS. Either way - I question my diagnosis and here's why.

Yes, I have pain but not the type of pain I read on here that others seem to have. My pain feels… read more
