Welcome to the fibro team. You sound like you are just about at the end of your rope but, believe me, you've taken the first step to take care of yourself. You won't meet a better bunch of people than the ones we have on this team. We've all experience the pain you've had. The biggest problem with Fibromyalgia is that everyone seems to experience it differently and what works for one might not work for another. You just need to keep trying different things and keep us posted on how you're doing. Hugs, Linda
Some days it's not worth chewing through the straps! Thanks, Jules. Frustration is trying to find your glasses without your glasses. Thanks, Mary Anne!
Remember: Don 't make old People mad. We don't like being old in the first place, so it doesn't take much to piss us off.
Rescuing one dog may not change the world, but for that one dog, the world will be changed forever.

I am 40 yrs old female who has been diagnosed with fibromyalgia 2012. Which is not the only the medical condition i have, suffer with chronic degenerative disc disease cervical spine as well with lumbar spine and degenerative and fraying of both shoulders. Which i now am not able to work and currently am receiving disability. It is all hard to except. I have tried so many treatments such as physiotherapy, laser therapy, massage therapy, aqua-fitness, trigger point injections, Acupuncture and chiropractor. All were just short relief. I am on medication. I have gained 40lbs. Nothing fits me and it doesnt help my self-esteem. I have lost weight 3 yrs ago with the help of spark people. So Im giving a shot. Since exercise is difficult for me!
