Hiding Fibro Symptoms

Posted on April 06, 2018

"To those who say "Hope feel better soon." Happily reply "Thanks, but until a cure is found that's most unlikely" Hiding your pain achieves nothing. It makes your burden heavier and does not enable others to grow in their understanding. So share away." - A member from MyFibroTeam

On MyFibroTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with fibromyalgia, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Hiding fiber symptoms one of the top 10 topics most discussed.

Here are a few question-and-answer threads about hiding symptoms:

How do you cope when a family member does not understand and accuses you of faking it?

Do you get sudden pains like someone is sticking a pin in you?

Do you hide your pain or hide the fact that they have fibromyalgia?

Here are some conversations about hiding symptoms:

I’m tired of pretending I’m okay when I’m not...

I have to pretend to be alright at work when all I want to do is curl up in front of the TV, munch on some popcorn, and relax.

I'm mad that I am unable to function as I used to. I try desperately to put on a smile and pretend that all is well.

Can you relate?

I am the 7th of 8 children too and siblings find it hard to understand when I say I can’t do something, they don’t get it
