    Male vs female fibro

    A person commented to me that there is another male on here. Afterwards I started realizing more that so far I have just seen stuff from females. I should have realized better when I saw the discussion about clothing.... Ya, I kinda backed out of that thread fairly quick, haha. My question is this: I realize statistically fibro is more predominantly found with females, but is it more rare in men...

    New to group

    Hi everyone.  I just joined this group and could use some help.  About 3 years ago after 6 years of worsening pain I was told that I had central sensitization, the umbrella for fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue.  I blew it off and said it couldn't possible be the problem.  However as of late I have been coming to grips with the diagnosis.  I try walking but I find holding the stroller makes...

Meanwhile, the neighbor's dog is barking e very time a leaf falls. Oh boy. This dog also howls when it hears sirens, and barks when it hears the PA system from the high school next...

    Red, hot ears and nose

    Periodically over the last couple of years I have gotten really red, hot ears and nose.  I really do not know what causes this. It comes without the rest of my body being hot. It happens numerous times a day now. There doesn't seem to be a rhyme or reason to it. It gets painful too.  Does anyone else suffer from this or have any idea what it may be.

Trying to focus to apply for Medical (medicaid/Covered Care California) AGAIN!!! I read this little line in the mound of paperwork that says if you have Medicare, you don't qualify for Covered California...To put it bluntly, but clean -...

    Therapeutic Thursday Check-in

    Hello, good morning, and wow, Isurvived! I stupidly watched the presidential US debate live, and had nightmares about having to eat nut grubs while washing underwear by hand. Two things I've never done for real, soooo.... Don't ask me what that's about, but I woke up fairly certain the grubs were real and in my stomach. Not a great moment. Yeesh!So today's therapy is: No News is Good News. Turn...

    I had to go from one device to another but finally got some profile stuff done on here. That way others can see I am a person not just a post. Specially considering I plan to continue here and share involvement. Besides, insomnia sucks!
