i was officially diagnosed with fibromyalgia a little over a year ago. However, I have had symptoms for years and worsening! I have Osteoarthritis and overactive bladder (ever since I can remember just getting worse!) I didn’t leave without a depends! I’ve tried many bladder meds the one that really works is $300/one month with my insurance! So I can’t always afford it! I have now developed dairy sensitivity, migraines, loss of taste and smell until it desides to return...usually at the worst time then overly sensitive! My lack of sleep, exhaustion, unable to concentrate, complete sentences and my thought processes is becoming like a kid in a candy store! Not to mention all the chronic pain inside and out! Spinal stenosis, numbness and tingling in my legs, my wrists and I wear braces for my thumbs, and just touching me sometimes hurts! I sleep with special pillows and blankets...no cuddling! I have always been an inspiration to others and a smile on my face kinda girl....until now! I find myself fake smiling a lot because when I’m honest I feel like I’m just complaining about something new again and nobody understands! I have been on different medication and still not much relief! Because I’m working full time and driving is involved my doctor is hesitant about certain medications! Work is getting more difficult every day!
I know my husband loves me and he’s trying but when I open up to him about yet another new symptom of fibromyalgia he usually says not everything is because of fibromyalgia!
It’s frustrating and adding stress and extremely cold weather isn’t helping!
Really just looking for someone else that understands.... that I’m not crazy and making everything up!
Frustrated and in pain...
my fibromyalgia is playing up and I’m in so much f’ing pain. I’m so tired I just want to sleep but the pain won’t let me. I’m in tears as I have t slept in more than 24hrs.this is just so unfair. Fuk this illness I don’t want it anymore. Why can’t I just be normal
Well, I slept 9 hours! Yeah... I was meant to be at my mom's 90 minutes ago. As you can see... Not hurrying over there. I need an hour to wake up, shower, dress, and just care enough to not go back to bed when it's this kind of fibro-achy day.She's been asking me if I'm okay. A lot. Everyone is wondering what's next. Like, she tried calling me an abuser and nearly had me investigated by cops,...
