- DX FIBRO
"They" tried to diagnose me with fibromyalgia/CFS about five or six years ago and I denied that I had it. I slogged through those five years, surviving, not living. Now I have reached full circle and am ready to admit that either or both fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue account for my symptoms. I am, like most of you, devastated. I still find myself questioning the diagnosis, hoping that if I could just get enough sleep I will wake up and feel like myself again. I suffer from headache, fatigue, hypersensitivity to light and sound, tinnitus, Raynaud's, arthritis (not rheumatoid), body aches and pains, difficulty concentrating and focusing, memory issues, heart palpitations, and malaise. Ugh. What happened to my vigor and drive? I am altering some things to prevent my mild symptoms from becoming more severe, but I have to admit this has been pretty difficult. I hope to give and get some support here as it seems that not many people without the condition truly understands what it is like to live with this every day.
