Hi everyone. I just joined this community and could really use some guidance. I have never been formally diagnosed with fibromyalgia by a medical doctor, only by an herbal specialist. I have been struggling just about every single symptom for about 5 years, though it's really become worse over the last 2 years. Long story short, I have no insurance and do not qualify for medical assistance so I haven't gone to the doctor in years. I have been searching for a doctor with a sliding fee or payment program but haven't been able to find any information. I have no idea where to start and I feel so overwelmed. I just know I can not live like this anymore, the pain has been so bad lately that I am having trouble working or doing most daily activites. I want so badly to have some relife, but I do not want to live on pain killers for the rest of my life either. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can start to find treatment (and an actual medical diagnoisis) that is affordable to a young person that doesn't make alot of money? I have been searching for hours online but haven't found much. Thank you for any suggestions, I feel that I am at rock bottom.

I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
