    Need to vent about...everything

    I have been handling my fibromyalgia diagnosis for about 3 months, along with the degenerative disc disease diagnosis that I received at the same time, pretty well. In September, I suddenly lost use of my left leg for unknown reasons. The best guess anyone gave for this happening was a nerve...

    I can't take anymore.

    Really, I just can't take anymore. I am 10 days from my hearing with the judge and I am falling apart. The closer it gets, the further I fall. I can't eat or sleep. I can't concentrate on anything. On top of everything else that is going on my sister in law had a massive heart attack on...

I was dealing with the pain...

    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...

    What are the other options (if not Fibro)

    Hello All, I have been seeing doctors for pain and parasthesia for over three years now with no diagnosis. Actually, that's not fair, because for 12-13 months while I was pregnant with my youngest and right after, I did not have symptoms and was not being seen for that purpose. I presented to...
