- DX FIBRO
Good afternoon all! I pray all of you are feeling well today. I have a question that some of you may be able to help me with. I have lived with Fibro for many years now, I am 53 years old and I'm in pretty good shape, I teach high school so I guess I better be lol. I posted in another forum that I have rib pain quite often. Pretty much everyday. Its not in my sternum or chest its around my sides close to the floating ribs I guess you would say and around to my back. The other day my husband fell off a ladder and broke his wrist and he had to have surgery this past Tuesday. We live in the Southeastern mountains and he is a truck driver so he is very hard to drive around. By the time I got him to the hospital for surgery my back on the left side was hurting so badly and also around my sides. I wasn't allowed to stay in with him for the surgery and I had to wait in the car for 3 plus hours waiting on him. Bringing him home was a nightmare, he was so sick at his stomach and his pain was high. Since then I have been trying to take care of him and teach my high school classes online from home. Does anyone know if I have just flared this fibro so much? It seems I feel better when I walk. However, I have to sit and teach all day long. I have IBS, GERD and also anxiety. My doctor told me that he felt I had a lot of chondritis to go along with the fibro. I just wanted to get your opinions. Thank you so much for listening to me. It means so much to just be able to talk to someone who knows maybe what I am feeling. Love and hugs to all!
