    Anyone else on the reddit r/Fibromyalgia?

    I'm not dissing this forum at all but sometimes when you need an answer or talk to someone right away, its a few days in between. I suggest to go check it out if you haven't already - i'm really not a bit reddit type person, but the forum on there is great, and lots of info and plenty of other...

    Fatigue so bad it's painful

    Pain Diary is a good idea. Here in the US depending on where you are, we do pay alot of taxes. As far as a govt health system - well the one they call obama care does nothing but gives you a piece of paper that says you have it. I had to be on obama care for 2 months.. and i couldn't see any...

    Strange stuff

    Hey flyingWY I totally see why your doc calls it a trash term.. there are docs that just don't believe in fibro, the docs that diagnose everyone with fibro.. and then the docs that actually believe there is something wrong - IE your doc.. I've had joint pain for years now. but in the last...

    Remarks from doctors - that hurt real bad

    :evil: Geez!

    Feeling Hopelessly Adrift

    I'm also a single mom, I'm a bit older (almost 38, blah) with a beautiful 4.5 year old daughter. I was diagnosed with fibro in Sept 2017 but "officially" in January 2018. I've had it for many years now and they finally gave "my mystery issue" a name. Years and years of testing, poking...
