I am a bit unique my diagnoses because it was the result of a total system collapse caused by undiagnosed Celiac. My doctors were confused for months but my rheumatologist is awesome and just kept trying to help me. I am determined to beat this disease and get back to my former fitness level (insanity followed by 2 mile run 6 days per week and strength training 3 per week). I lost 200 lbs and ... Thu, 7 Nov 2013 22:53:30 EST Hello I am a 24 year old mother of 3. I have had symptoms of Fibro since I was 16 but was not diagnosed until a year ago. I struggle with weight loss because of the pain, I have chosen not to take medications because I don't like the groggy feeling and the inability to care for my babies that comes with them. Sat, 7 Sep 2013 10:56:19 EST New Hey Everyone ! My name is Liz and I am 22 years old. I have suffered from Fibromyalgia since I was a teenager but after I had my son two years ago is really when it started affecting my everyday life. I have constant pain in my lower back and legs. It's really hard somedays but I know I have to keep going for my son. I have hope that when I get my weight under control that it will help with some of the pain. Tue, 21 Jun 2011 09:49:16 EST Hi Everyone Hi everyone. I'm new here. I am 32 and have fibromyalgia along with several other medical problems. I will try to get on and post often but that is not always possible as you all know. Mon, 25 Apr 2011 23:00:34 EST Hello. Hi. I'm new to this team. I am 31 years old. I haven't officially been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia but am being treated with a "successful Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome medication." <BR> I've been dealing with pain, extreme fatigue, and other symptoms for two years now. Though, looking back, I have had a number of similar mystery symptoms since at least college. My docs originally thought I had Lyme Disease, but then changed their minds since it kept coming back. <BR> <BR> If an... Thu, 17 Mar 2011 12:31:35 EST hello hello everyone. even though (i think) im just now introducing myself, ive been here for a little bit, and already gotten some great support for which im grateful from this group. <em>334</em> <em>213</em> i was diagnosed with fibromyalgia about a year ago. i have deformed joints, so i grew up dealing with and ignoring pain. the pain wasnt what bothered me enough to do something about it. i obviously had pain and stiffness to the point of hurting, but my family all is high-stress, so they ... Thu, 1 Apr 2010 08:55:48 EST fatigue i have a question for you all. i started going through the gambit of testing for fatigue that was persistent and seemed to progressively get worse. after about 2/3 a year of having tests come back negative, i was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. i do think that i have fibromyalgia, but im not sure that my fatigue is accountable to this diagnosis. my main problem is that sometimes i literally cannot get out of bed because i am too tired and feel like crap. (i really dont know how else to explain i... Tue, 30 Mar 2010 22:48:16 EST just last week. Hi everyone, <BR> I was diagnosed with fibro last week so everything is kind of new to me. When I read about it and people dealing with it--it's hard to find individuals with symptoms like mine (stomach pain and dizziness), or to figure out how to do what I can to heal in a natural way. <BR> I'm an active person and I still try jogging and light weight lifting but it's sort of difficult now which is nerve racking. Any and all advice is welcome, especially about fatigue because I have so muc... Tue, 14 Oct 2008 21:26:22 EST Hello!! This group is kinda neat :) <BR> <BR> My names Katie, I'm 24 and I'm from Florida. I grew up with JRA (Juvenille Rheumatoid Arthritis) which I've supposedly "outgrown" I've since moved onto Fibro. FUN!! :) <BR> <BR> I do better in the summer than the winter.....but over the winter when I'm in so much pain..I eat..and eat...and sit around...and sleep....and gain weight!! <BR> <BR> I started walking today and that's my goal for now. Just to walk and see where it takes me. It was REALLY fun!!... Tue, 24 Jun 2008 20:48:50 EST I'm in pain. As you all know we deal with fibro pain on a daily basis, but today is a really bad fibro day for me. My legs hurt so bad I cannot walk ( I just kind of limp around), and my jaw hurts so bad the it hurts to eat or talk. Please pray for me as I deal with this pain. My jaw has been like this for a few days now. Tue, 22 Jan 2008 16:53:28 EST Fibro pain I am back to my work out routine after taking 4 days off due to fibro pain. My fibro REALLY flares up during my menstrual cycle, and I can barely get out of bed. Does anyone else deal with this? How do you cope with it? Tue, 15 Jan 2008 12:18:44 EST Hi All! I am new to the team. I have been dealing with fibromyalgia since I was 7 years old, and am now 22.
