    How to deal with grief while having fibro?

    Hi WinnieBlue, So sorry for your loss. Condolences to you and your loved ones. When my Dad made his heavenly departure last year, I attended a group called GriefShare.

    Question.... I have heard the phrase "fibro Itch" Is this a thing?

    Strange head pain

    Hi Nikkozoo, I have had similar type feeling with severe headaches. I went to see a lymphatic massage lady. She asked when I walked in if I am prone to vertigo. I said yes, why do you ask? She said she could tell by the way I was walking. I actually went to her for lymphatic massage on my arm...

    Feeling Foggy and Stressed and Fatigued...You have a lot of company

    Hi Sunkacola, Thank you for your posts. They are super helpful and informative. I am new to the site and newly diagnosed with Fibro. I think Fibro fog and lack of sleep kind of go hand in hand. I was undergoing treatments for breast cancer (3 surgeries, 2 weeks radiation) when I became...
