Hello! I believe I may have been a part of this team before. My Dr went back and forth saying I have fibromyalgia, then I didn't, now I do, etc. So yeah, here I am.
Anyway. I'm Tina. I'm 38 years old and from NY. I have kids ranging from 3 - 21 and 2 grand-daughters (aged 3weeks and 18 months) I'm happily married to my soulmate (yes, it's corny but true) He's my English gentleman. I currently stay at home with my little girl, but am a Certified Nurses Assistant and will go back to that in a year or 2. I would love to get this pain under control because that job is extremely hard on the body. I really can't imagine working with the way I feel these days.
I'm going to check out some of the links, but have a few questions.
Are there foods to avoid to help reduce fibro pain?
Are there any meds that help with pain? I currently take desipramine, which my doc says is helpful in patients with fibro, but I don't have tons of faith in him lately. I was originally put on it for headaches.
I'm seeing a rheumatologist in Feb. Any thing I should be prepared to ask for? Tests?
Anyone familiar with lupus? My Dr mentioned it as a possibility, anything I need to know?
What types of exercise do you do to help relieve pain?
I guess that's it. Anything you want to know about me, just ask.
