Hello Becca, Welcome to the forum. I am sure as you roam about you will find some answers to your questions, as well as, make some new friends. I have had fibromyalgia for many years and after a while it almost is like normal. You have it, but you don't think about it until the days you have the pain , and it is bad so you can not do the things you want because of weakness or numbness, or bad headaches or the countness other symptoms that keep us at home. Enough of that, I hope I made sense. Anyways, I am looking forward to reading your posts and sharing opinions with you throughout the forum.
