Hi everyone. I'm a 30 something mom and newbie to the forums and recently diagnosed with fibro. The doctor feels I have had this for some time, but it's still new to me and am having a hard time trying to figure out if the pain and symptoms I am experiencing is due to the fibro or other health issues I have (anxiety, osteoarthritis, carpal tunnel...). It also seems to change up on me a lot. Sometimes the pain is so bad, I'm in bed for days at a time.

hi there! we are very similar: I'm also a mom in my 30s, lots of symptoms that may or may not be associated. Best of luck figuring it all out!

Welcome :0) anxiety for me, is a huge issue, and is very much a part of the fibro, as is the carpel tunnel, mine comes and goes, I have splints for when it's really bad, but I have been ok for a few moths, but then I have not been using my hands a lot ... It's very hard to pull the fibro apart and you will drive yourself nuts trying to understand it, best advice I can give you is, just take each day at a time, hour by hour if you have to! Do things that make you happy! Build a good relationship with a good doctor, who will help you deal with each symptom, not try and treat the fibro as a whole... Sorry you have this, I have had it for over twenty years and CFS ... I wish you luck, if I can be of help your welcome to message me:0)
