Difference Between Fibro Symptoms And Post Covid Symptoms

Difference Between Fibro Symptoms And Post Covid Symptoms

Shivering When Tired?

Shivering When Tired?

I noticed this more over the past couple years, but when I’m really tired and try to go to bed I start shivering. I can have 3 blankets on or sweating but I still can’t stop shivering until I fall asleep. Sometimes I think it’s so bad I’m shaking the whole bed. Anyone else? Or am I crazy?

Self Esteem

Self Esteem

I know this isn't fibro related but I'm just wondering if anyone else struggles with self esteem? I've been this way all my life, but at this point in life I just wanted to finally over come it! Any suggestions?

A MyFibroTeam Member said:

I think anyone that has been abused in a severe way will have alot of self esteem issues. I do. I'm not as bad as I got older but it is hard not to be.

Fibromyalgia Related To Autism/ADHD

Fibromyalgia Related To Autism/ADHD

I'm just wondering if anyone on here has Fibromyalgia and has kids or is on the spectrum themselves? I'm reading this to be more familiar. I have 3 kids on the spectrum and I'm on the list to get seen to get a diagnosis too. Is there a link??

A MyFibroTeam Member said:

May just be we people affected are easily stressed which increases symptoms and more noticiable, as far as im aware no connection has been made. Perhaps just laws of average. More and more additional… read more
