1336585 tn?1275709112 I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia a year and a half ago but have had chronic pain for about 6 years. The pain is constant and only with medication can i even function on a daily basis. Some days, the meds only help a little and the achiness is so intense all i want to do is lay down and sleep. With 4 young kids, that's not always an option. The worst part about it is that no one understands the pain i'm in except for those that have this conditon.

Avatar f tn I have been in denial for 14 years. I did not believe that my constant pain and fatigue was caused by fibromyalgia. Doctors in my area were not supportive and I think that is what triggered my disbelief. They are still very vague about their knowledge of this complex syndrome. I am glad to finally find a forum to discuss and learn more about this strange visitor who refuses to leave my body.

3202069 tn?1345404482 I have had fibromyalgia for about 8 yrs maybe longer. It is very hard to deal with. My legs bother me alot. I am on pain meds and eating certain foods make it worse. I go to an Integrative doctor Steve Windley. I would say that Diet and exercise help the most. Stretching is very important. My doctor told me that alot of Carbs cause the body to be inflamed. I also know that soda causes me to hurt all over. I get tightness in my legs and calves. I used to have alot of shoulder pain.

Avatar f tn I'm 13w 1d with baby number 3. Last year I was diagnosed with sever fibroyalgia and depression. I wasn't planning on becoming pregnant but am over the moon. I immediately came off all my medications. And I feel awful. I'm in so much pain in my back and hips I can't stand and was terrible sick until recently. I had to do a rapid detox and had really bad withdrawals. Any other moms have to go through this?
630344 tn?1280104983 I am on the second week of knowing that I am pregnant and I am off all of my meds, but I cannot seem to kick these headaches and it is starting to get really old. If there is miracle cure I sure hope to find it out, because I do not think that I can handle another 9 months of headaches all day and week long.
Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with fibro a year and 4 months ago. It took a lot of trial and error, blood tests and work to come to that conclusion. My doctor began being very supportive. I am 36 years old and never had an addiction problem or anything of the sort. I tried lyrica, gabapentin, cymbalta, effexor, multiple otc NSAIDs and multiple prescription nsaids. One of the joys of fibro is my lack of tolerance to medications.

Avatar f tn I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia about 3 yrs now. I started having problems with headaches about a week after my daughter was born, and other problems slowly took their toll on me. I have been tested at least 15-20 times for other diseases, but everything would come back normal. I had 6-7 doctors tell me it was fibromyalgia without even a blink of an eye, and told me there was nothing they could do for me. I tried all the meds that supposedly treat fibro, but none of them worked.

Avatar f tn No advice, I'm sorry but I'm following this as my husband and I have just started TTC and I've recently been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, I'm 26.
Avatar f tn I suffered with muscle pain for a few years and thought it was part of the RA but now I realize that I have FM. After going to my pcp a few times with pain not explained by RA he had me to try Savella. I skeptically filled the rx. Within a week I noticed that my muscle pain was noticeably improved. It flares at times but it has helped a lot.
