    ever hear of fibro rash?

    I have a friend who's had fibro for many years and the other day she showed me her breast... she has a red raised rash that she said comes and goes in random areas, sometimes it itches, hydrocortisone helps a little, and she said it's a "fibro rash".

    new depression

    I've always been an incredibly resilient person but this morning my therapist of 3 years suggested I think about seeing a psychiatrist and taking an antidepressant. I'm at a new "low" so to say.

    feel bruised all over, fibro?

    From the beginning I didn't have "classic" fibro symptoms, and when I was diagnosed I asked my rheumatologist if I should expect symptoms to get worse, she said anticipate that they will change. Originally I was having sharp shooting pains throughout my body, first an arm, then a leg, then my...

    symptoms dont stop changing

    Hope someone can relate to never being able to understand their fibro because its always changing! I've had vague symptoms for years, just never felt "good" and never had answers. Chronic nausea, vomiting, IBS, intermittent fatigue have been an issue since I was 18 (I'm now 31). This past April...

    poem- feeling trapped in my own world

    Nobody sees it so nobody knows I feel so alone Trapped in a world of my own But nobody sees it so nobody knows. I look like a healthy young woman And what I feel makes no sense. It’s so hard to try to explain I bite my tongue so not to complain Or appear to want sympathy So nobody knows but me...
