I just don't get it. I have only been dx'd a short time with Fibro. It seems that in the last 3 months I have really gotten worse. My DR keeps saying that Fibro isn't progressive. What does that actually mean? My pain is getting worse. Walking is getting harder. Sleeping, relaxing just about everything is getting worse. Maybe I am not understanding the meaning of progression. I keep wondering if this is being cause by something else other than Fibro. I don't know what to ask my Dr about other possibilities. I'm not even sure really what tests he did run to eliminate other possibilities. I guess I was just glad that he dx'd me with something so I could get some relief. Also the pieces fit the puzzle. He is very arrogant (big surprise there) and does not like to be questioned about things, but he gives me rx for pain and you all know how hard that is to find sometimes. Can anyone explain to me the meaning of not progressive? Thanks Suzi

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
