What is fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgia is a syndrome that has widespread chronic pain that affects the muscles, ligaments, and tendons. It is an invisible illness because it’s symptoms cannot be seen by others. It is a multi-faceted disease and has a vast array of symptoms that each vary in degree of severeness.

    I have suffered with fibromyalgia for over 12 years. I had to quit my job and file for disability last year…now waiting on an appeal. Fibromyalgia has robbed me of being able do things with my daughter…. Everything comes to a stand still when I have a severe flare up…I pray for a cure. I love shopping on Amazon as it does not require me to get out and go shop.

    I was diagnosed back in 2003 and went through many years just wallowing in it. I’ve since moved on and sometimes forget for months at a time that I have it. Then, it hits and knocks me out for days or weeks.

    I know that it was, for a long time, thought of as one of those “in their head” conditions, and, I suppose there are a few in the medical community that still cling to that though most are now saying it is a real diagnosis. As a person with early stage adrenal fatigue (high cortisol), I am right where Fibro patients used to be….we have to hunt for good doctors who believe that something is wrong even if your test score is only halfway as high (or low) as what is now recognized as a condition. I know that some Fibro sufferers spent years being told they were depressed, hypochondriacs, and even crazy just like those dealing with cortisol are dealing with now. I keep telling fellow sufferers that one day it will be a recognized diagnosis. Every “unseen” illness goes through this – fibromyalgia, CFS, etc….

    I know that I’m glad that the medical community is finally taking notice and trying to help those with these conditions rather than sending them home and telling them to “take a vacation” and it will all be better!

    I was actually diagnosed with fibro mistakenly before finding out I had Ehlers Danlos Syndrome. My friends that do have fibro have many of the same symptoms I do and we even use similar treatments, so it was an easy mistake for the doctor to make!

    I often think of Fibro as a monster in the body. Coupled with Candidasis= 2 monsters in the body. A vicious cycle of disease that affects every system of the body. INSOMNIA.

    I know a lot about Fibromyalgia as I have had it for 21 years and am no longer able to work. It took 18 years of going to doctors before a few of the medical professionals would believe me about the type of pain I endure daily. However, since I moved to another state, I have more medical professionals questioning whether or not I truly have Fibromyalgia.

    I have a good friend who has fibro and she’s said that one of the most difficult things for her is having an “invisible” illness. It’s really tough when you look “fine,” but inside, you are in so much pain. I guess a lot of people don’t understand that, which is sad, esp. since it affects more woman then men and we woman need to support one another! <3

    I worked for a chiropractor some years ago. Some of the patients had fibromyalgia so the chiropractor sat us all down for a lecture on it. From what I can remember fibro gives people lots of aches and pains and extra sensitivity. It sounds very uncomfortable!

    I attended a seminar for it over a decade ago and it is painful and people can have trouble getting it diagnosed.

    My best friend and two of my sisters have fibromyalgia . My Sis insisted she thinks I have it too because of my own issues. I know its real. Its painful. Its exhausting. Its invisable and its hard to find people who know very much including Doctors nurses ect. Sometimes its plain depressing.

    My ex boyfriend has it, and I know he’s in a lot of pain most of the time.

    Fibromyalgia (FM) is a medical condition characterised by chronic widespread pain and a heightened and painful response to pressure.

    I’m not that familiar with fibromyalgia. I just know it’s very painful to live with.

    I know that Fibromyalgia is often misunderstood and symptoms are often unrecognized, causing it to remain undiagnosed for months or years. I also know that it is not a disease of the joints but is arthritis-related, effecting muscles. 🙂

    I don’t know much, all I know it is that it mostly attacks women.

    Unfortunately I don’t know a lot about fibromyalgia. If I remember correctly it affects the nerves.

    I don’t really know much about fibromyalgia. All I know is that it causes pain to the people who suffer from it.
