    Support is a good thing

    0
    Hello everyone. I am new to this site. It is nice to find an exchange where ideas, stories and struggles around fibromyalgia can be shared without the usual eye-rolling or downright ignoring. Why is it nobody wants to listen when we are having a bad day? Or insult us with sharings of the latest miracle smoothie? I don't talk about how i feel for the most part because nobody who doesn't have this...

    Chronic Pain for 3 Years

    4
    I have dealt with chronic pain for over 3 years and haven't been diagnosed even though I struggle with horrible back, neck and leg pain on a daily basis.  I wonder if I may have fibromyalgia or maybe myalgic encenphalitis because I sufferfrom chronic fatigue and have to push myself to do the smallest activities that used to come so easy to me. Can anyone tell me how you found out/ were diagnosed...

    MLKJr Monday Check-in

    Good morning! In the US, it's a federal (bank) holiday for the birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr., the civil rights leader assassinated in 1968.Some US former-Confederate states still also celebrate this as Robert E Lee Day. Lee was a noted general in the US Civil War, who began in the US Army, led forces for the rebellion, and somehow didn't get his butt fried for being a traitor b/c hey, he's...

    NEW YEAR, MED PROBLEMS

    Now, I've gotten one prescription covered for the New Year, and paid for, my insurance has decided I am taking too many opoids. The pharmacy won't refill my prescription. First time this has happened. Wrote to Doctor, sent emails, called 3 times. Still, not getting my pain meds without prior authorization. Just waiting. Helpless, at this time. Oxycodone. Been taking it for a decade and...

    Good morning! It is wet and/or sleety and/or icy (elevation change, I'm rain, but if we go to the top of the hollow, it's sleet...) Anyway, let me tell y'all a story...Like I do otherwise, LOL.OK. Hubby has hired a personal trainer to help him "get stronger". (*headdesk*) Yes, we can afford this b/c his insurance covers that. I love his insurance. A pity I'm not on it.Well, the trainer did it....

    First Ever Sinus Infection

    9
    Hi, everybody. I need some advice... I've been sick with a cold since the week before Christmas & found out today I now have a sinus infection. I think it has something to do with my anxiety & feeling like I'm drowning, but I CANNOT sleep if I am congested. It's been a rough four weeks, but I was starting to feel better until today when the worst congestion I've ever had hit... Now I'm worried...

    Recent Fibromyalgia Diagnosis

    3
    Hi all,Earlier today I was diagnosed with fibromyagia - I had a bike accident last January and have had pain all over my body that has not gone away, and I finally found a rheumatology specialist that did not ignore my thought that it might be fibro. Its a hard diagnosis to get at 23, but I'm trying to stay positive and find ways to move forward. I currently do yin yoga, chiro work, massage...

    So this keeps happening to me and it's frustrating.  I'll explain by the example of today.  Today was stressful, busy, and tiring.  By 4:30pm, I was ready to curl up in a ball and suffer the consequences of a hard day.  But, alas, I had to go to work for a few more hours at an evening job.  Luckily, the evening job is front desk at a slow gym and I can pretty much go stretch (aka lay down...

    TGIFriday Check-in

    Good morning.I got nothin'. Mom wants to revoke POA and we see the lawyer today and she is going to say we coerced her into filing bankruptcy, but she's $70K in debt and only has, oh, a fourth of that amount in *gross* income every year in retirement, but hey! We're horrible people and she doesn't want to go to jail. Don't ask. The post-tumor paranoia means she cannot be reasoned with. I just...

    Back home again

    im home again. I guess you can say everything just got to be to much. I don't remember very much I just woke up in the hospital. I remember being in the bath tub and I was messing around with the razor and my arm started to bleed than I remember trying to control the bleeding. It got so out of hand. It was like I wasn't there. Of course the hospital said it was because of my pain meds. WHAT.....

    Therapy Thursday Check-in

    Good morning/day/evening/whatever:-)Did I sleep? Eh. I'll take it. Did I feel pain? OMG, who set the invisible rats of he** to gnaw me?! FIgured out that my L4-5 is doing its fun "you overdid, so I'm going to give you neuropathic pain all night" thing. While most of my accident damage a few years ago was to L5, the L4 gets in on the action sometimes. All this, btw, b/c I followed doctor's orders...
