I posted something on having fibromyalgia several months ago, and speculating about it. Well I was just diagnosed yesterday… and I’m in the middle of a crazy flare up. I haven’t had a decent night sleep in a week… and I’ve taken prescription sleeping meds. 🙁 The new meds they put me on are making me super nauseous!
Is there anyone else out there who can commiserate with me?

The flare ups are so hard, but are they certain you have fibro? Have they also checked you for arthritis?
I have been diagnosed with fibro for at least 13 years now and the arthritis is creeping in:( My hands hurt most of the time and now my feet, it seems to be progressing rapidly.
One other thing I do not like, is it seems like I get sick easier than most folks:( Fibro compromises the immune system somewhat in some people, and I’m the some people. Flare ups are bad and sometimes it can take all my energy just to get out of bed.
All that being said, I live with this, I do not suffer from it. Be careful if you join Fibro support groups, although the information can be helpful, you will find a load of people suffering from it, If you know what I mean? So I don’t go there anymore really. I just can’t help it. Some people are like fungi and it starts spreadding and before you know it, I feel worse than I did when I went there.
You can pm me if you want:) I try and exersize that seems to help. My worst time is in the morning, I don’t wake up well LOL… I am very tired and it takes a while to wake up.
Good Luck and I’m sorry this happened to you. What I really hate is that so many people do not believe its real… And THAT Is hard, so not many people know I have it.
Nice to meet you!
