    Recent diagnosis & overwhelmed with despair.

    I'm new to the forums and have been reading a bit. I have so many symptoms that no doctors (and I see many) will give me an answer or solution other than medications that will make me sicker. I feel like I'm slowly dying, literally, and I can't for the life of me understand why doctors simply...

    Struggling to cope

    Hi all. I've lived with fibromyalgia since 2014 (diagnosed) and like since 2010 undiagnosed. I'm a mom to a 10 month old baby. I'm a freelance writer, working about 15 hours a week. And a wife. In my pre-fibro life, I used to be a competitive weightlifting athlete, power-yoga teacher and...
