Hello! It's great to have you here so we can learn from each other. I've shared my story several times throughout this forum, so it's a lot easier for me to suggest going back and reading older threads to learn our stories. I'm also exceptionally exhausted right now, and I'm on the computer so I don't feel like I'm withering away.
My story is really complicated too - it starts at birth and slowly builds from there. Fibromyalgia just presented itself a little over a year ago. I'm convinced it's a symptom of my other root issues, such as weak digestive organs that I'm working on repairing, over exertion most of my life, weak heart (born with a heart murmur,) tons of true allergies to foods and environmental stuff, major inflammation (arthritis - I have damage to my wrists from it,) and very low blood sugar and pressure for an extended amount of time. I went to many doctors and specialists, got the appropriate diagnoses, and no help from them whatsoever. They put me on Cymbalta, which made me much worse, in that I got so weak that I honestly believed I was dying. My flame of life was about as low as possible. I gave up on doctors and went to naturopath my friend with fibro highly recommended. He's doing a tremendous amount of good for me - I can't recommend him enough. He's healing me through an extreme diet, supplements (herbs, actual organ tissue, minerals, and vitamins,) treatments at his clinic and at home, exercise, and rest.
