Hello everyone. A friend recommended to me that I try to find a support group to find someone to relate to about chronic pain (fibromyalgia). It's consummed my life and has hurt many relationships (not being able to "hang out" as often, not being so cheerful at work, etc.). Some background information: It began with my neck about 7 years ago. My neck would suddenly just go into a spasm and lock up for about a week or 2. Had MRIs, nothing significant. Just some bulging discs. Blood tests were all normal. No rheumatoid factor, ANA negative, thyroid and glucose normal, etc. On several meds for GAD, ADHD, and pain. Went though physical therapy multiple times and did all the exercises at home. Saw multiple doctors. Went to pain management, have been weaned off of opioids to a gabapentinoid.
Has anyone on here felt that the support group helped them in dealing with the chronic pain and fatigue of fibromyalgia?

They look great and the rooms are definitely warmer. Today, I have to drive...
