FIBROMYALGIA FUNK....very upset!

Sunday, October 21, 2012

It's Sunday.....not happy today! Need a "Spark" emoticon
I'm so sick and tired of being "sick and tired".... My illness (fibromyalgia) is getting the upper hand right now and there is nothing I can do about it emoticon
The pain is becoming worse so I'm thinking a trip back to the doctor (who knows nothing about fibromyalgia) can give me a new and improved medication, that will work better ?? emoticon
Fibromyalgia is a "bad word" as far as I'm concerned. There is not a single doctor out there where I live that will see me (rheumatologists included) or that even care....because..."I HAVE FIBROMYALGIA"... It's like the plague because no one knows anything about it! So in the mean time I suffer, suffer, suffer....etc...!!!
I hate it so damn much and there are days like today that I just can't function and move out of this misery... Damn it!!
I am not a negative person and I hate it when I'm in "this spot"... Hard to get out of it!
It's like a deep dark hole and I can't climb out of it because my hands and arms hurt so much...I just can't do it... emoticon
Gotta go now.... emoticon

    I can understand what you are going through. I was diagnosed by a rheumatologist over 20 years ago for FM, and it's been an up and down lifestyle. I retired early due to both FM and osteo and am able to manage both conditions pretty good, through meds and exercise.. for the FM, Lyrica and Amtripyline are working quite well, but I still get those really exhausted kind of days.

Take care and good for you bringing this more in the open.

    Sorry to hear that the fibro was acting up. I have fibromyalgia also and right now I feel wiped out. I am taking some meds that are helping for the pain. It helps but, then there are days like this. I understand and pray that you will feel well soon.

    I understand - I have fibro also. It does hurt so much, and people without it cannot understand the impact on our bodies. I am on Gabapentin for other medical issues, which helps some days, but not all. There are some good suggestions already made - going gluten free has helped some for me - but even trying these will not make it go away. I still have very bad days. Hang in there - remember that you will have less pain at some point. I have to hold on to that thought on the bad days. Hugs to you - but very gentle ones emoticon

    Aww...I'm so sorry. I know what it's like to not feel well and go through things in my body that are very uncomfortable. I really empathize and sympathize with you. I hope you feel better soon and know you're not alone. I don't have the illness you have but as I've seen in your comments, several ppl can relate to exactly what you deal with. I have an aunt who has it and I know she goes through a lot with it. emoticon

    I have to be honest and say I do not know what fibromyalgia is but I am going to look it up in the health section. I do know what its like to have a doctor not familiar with your problem and I sympathize with you on that. I truly hope you get to feeling better. It is hard to overcome pain and to strive for health when you're hit with the flu or cold. For me it usually starts with a fun visit with a grandchild or grandchildren and then a phone call from their mom saying the kids are sick. What my daughter is really trying to say is, "your gonna get it too"

Get Well Soon my Spark Friend, you are special

    My firomyalgia seem to any some better when I quit eating all dairy, sugar, and white flour. I stay very high with protein in my diet. I drink Whey isolate for protein. i can drink it because they process the milk a different way than they do the Reg, Whey protein powder. I also found mediation really helped. I had to mediate for 30 mins. everyday and had to do this for about two weeks before I felt a difference. You may all ready be doing these things. B vits. are good too.

    I'm sorry to hear you're having such a tough time. Maybe try eastern medicine? The approach is totally different. I do wish doctors showed more compassion these days. It wouldn't make them unprofessional. You can overcome anything! emoticon
