im Emmy I'm a 29 year old from Australia and I have been recently diagnosed with fibromyalgia. I have had pain for the last 15 years but have a lot of other health issues (Type 1 diabetes, endometriosis, PCOS, migraines, hypothyroidism, hypersomnia, chronic sinusitis and IBS are the main ones)that the pain was always blamed on. I find it hard to talk about to others because they just don't understand. Often they say I'm to young for that many issues or I don't look sick. So I'm glad I found this site!
Just curious, has anyone experienced this? It's infrequent but a bit frightening. Thx for reply. I hope I can find any responding posts. One thing about this format is that its confusing layout. Carris
I have been in a terrible flare for the last 3 weeks, daily functioning is impossible. Spoke with my doctor today who told me a flare should never last more than 3 days and I need to get active and function normally to feel better. Is this normal practice for a doctor to say this or is it time to find a new doctor? I really liked her in the beginning but now I'm not so sure.
Hi! I'm looking for recommendations on doctors who specializes in fm in the Lehigh valley area, although I am willing to travel to Hershey or philly is the doctor is great. Any help would be appreciated!
Hi there, i was just wondering how many of you have hypothyroidism along with fibromyalgia. My doctor seems to think there is some correlation. I've been reading posts and I found that the two things everyone seems to have in common is that we were all go-getters before the fibro. People that push their bodies...maybe too much!? The other thing seems to be the fatigue and exhaustion. I do get exhausted from dealing with the pain to get things done, but for me the lack of energy only happens when my thyroid is high. It took me a few years to figure out the difference!
