    I have a difficult time writing short notes. Obviously not a great TWEETER LOL So my doctor ordered a full spine MRI done in 3 parts. The MRI is the newest, latest greatest.

    Thyroid and Fibromyalgia

    I'm currently testing for Thyroid disorders. I'm wondering how many Fibro friends have Thyroid issues? Also, I'm on gluten, sugar and preservative free diet. My fog has lifted a bit and my tremors aren't as pronounced. On the down side, my throat is still tight like I can't swallow and it...

    Surgery update
