    Hi, New Member Here

    Hi, this is my first time here. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia my junior year in college right before I turned 20 I think. I'd been experiencing pain since high school but since I was always a dancer I always attributed it to pushing too hard in dance or being sore from practice. It wasn't...

    Does Fibromyalgia keep you from dancing

    I love to dance, and I can say that the medication the doctor has me on keeps me fairly active, and feeling fairly average. I can go dancing, and dance the night away, just like someone that doesn't have this condition. I can't wear boots, and dance, I have to take them off.
