I am sixty years young, married with 2 children and a grandson that is ten whom my husband and I are raising. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia in 2010, or I should say I am self diagnosed. When I went to my physician I told her what I thought I had, which was fibromyalgia but she would not listen. She told me that she needed to run tests and if nothing showed up then she guessed I had fibromyalgia. I am still learning about this awful disease and it seems like when I have it almost figured out something new happens. I didn't know about fibro flares until a few days ago when I started having a lot of pain in my right hand and wrist for no reason at all. I asked the members in a group I belong too and they are the ones that told me about the flares. I am glad to find a forum where I can get some of my questions answered.
