    Foot pain?

    I know fibro seems to have a lot to answer for but does anyone else suffer from foot pain? I've been doing a lot of walking this last week & have had pain on the top of both feet but as this has started to improve, I now have pain on the ball of my left foot, even at rest & painkillers don't do...

    It's official - starting on the right foot

    Hi all, Fairly new to the forum (been poking around since I realised I probably had fibro). I saw the rheumatologist yesterday and it's more or less official: I have Fibro. He checked for tender points (didn't get a count, but I have a bunch) and the symtoms questionnaire all came up positive...

    Really tired of the vicious circle

    Last night I was supposed to go to a party, and I had agreed to bring the coleslaw. I tried to pace myself all day, getting the things done I had to do but not over doing it, and made sure I had time to rest for 2 hours before time to leave for the party, but I could tell as the time approached...

    Tender points while on meds.

    Hey, I am currently being evaluated for Fibro, and finally see the rheumatologist on Monday. I'm not sure entirely what to expect, but probably they will check for tender/trigger points. I'm pretty sure I have several, though probably not all of them. There are spots on the side of my elbows...

    Leg weakness

    I have had FM for 14 years now, but 5 years ago my legs quit working right. I finally went to a Physical Therapist and my quad muscles are the only muscles in my legs that have become very weak. They wont let me squat my full body weight and yet the rest of my legs seem to work just fine. I...

    Keep a positive on on the end result

    This past weekend, it suddenly hit me. Intense/severe constant pain in my upper right abdomen. Since I am 22 weeks pregnant, I freak out not knowing if something is happening to baby. I go to the doctors on Friday and find it is just round ligament pain (Ligament - kind of like a rubber band...

    Having a bad week and it's only Monday

    Just have to vent, I feel like very few people in my life really hear me. I'm so tired. And I'm tired of being tired. I feel bad for trying to make plans with my mother this weekend and then feeling too exhausted to get out if bad. I feel worse that there's nothing I can say that will make her...

    It all makes sense now

    Hi everyone. I'm Abby. I was officially diagnosed in February of this year by a rheumatologist, but my family doctor put me on Lyrica before Christmas. I've been in pain for years, but blamed myself for it. I was (and am) overweight, and that's society's first answer to any fat person's health...

    How can you describe your fatigue?

    Hi, I am not very good at words that explain certain physical feelings. The word fatigue is one of them. It simply confuses me. Is it supposed to be the same as 'exhaustion', for example? I often hear people take a nap when they are exhausted or are fatigued. But with me, when I am exhausted...
