    I Am In A Lot Of Pain And Need Help

    Hi everyone, I'm new and from Australia. I am so glad that I just found this forum. :) A friend recommended looking up Fibromyalgia when I was discussing the symptoms of my ongoing illness and pain on my Facebook. I post there to try and cope with what I'm going through and my online friends...

    Im not Contagious/Fibro awareness

    I ran into an old school friend, When I told her I had Fibromyalgia, she took steps back, away from me as if I was contagious. Fibromyalgia awareness, obviously not known in my area.

The gist of it is this. Several years ago my brother in law (my husbands brother) got into a fight with...

    Diagnosed Yesterday

    I was diagnosed with FM yesterday by a rheumatologist. This was after months of testing by my GP for the extreme fatigue and brain fog. I chalked the pain up to 'overdoing it' because everything started in April, when I began doing more outside yard work. A friend asked if I had considered the...

    Symptom Relief with Diet?

    I just heard from my friend that she has fibromyalgia but doesn't take medications to relieve her symptoms. Instead, she changed her diet and her symptoms have improved. She doesn't eat gluten, corn or dairy. I think she does this also because she has celiac, but it also helped with her...

    Possibly Fibromyalgia, Anxiety, or something else?

    Hello, all: I've been dealing with a tingling (and occasionally burning) sensation on the left side of my body. It started almost two weeks ago when I had what I believe was a panic attack while driving home from work. I had to pull over into a parking lot and call a friend to come get me. My...
