I gained 80 pounds when my pituitary failed starting in 2008. I put on a few pounds after my brain aneurysm because I was just too tired to do much in the two years it took to recover from that.
I also have primary hypothyroidism, Hashimoto's disease, PCOS and metabolic syndrome.
Actually, fibro is the least of my challenges. I have had a couple of days in the last few months when I couldn't move much at all, but generally if I stay active the fibro doesn't give me much trouble unless I completely overdo things (more than 4 hours exercise/day) or am under a lot of stress.
