I'm a new member here. I was diagnosed in 2001 with fibro but my dr said I probably had it before this. I also was diagnosed with lung cancer last year and after a rough go with chemo I have had 3 scans so far that show no cancer. While I was undergoing chemo I was not really bothered much by my fibro and I'm not sure if it was because I was focused on my chemo and getting through this or some of the drugs in the chemo helped. Currently, I've been in the worst flare I've ever had going on 4 days straight. I attribute most of it to the darn cold because I live in the Midwest. I'm looking forward to this group so that I can find things that may work for some and see if it would help me plus helping others if I can.
