Hi everyone, I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia for a little while now. Still having problems with doctors. Learned about this site because I am looking for doctors who actually know what they are talking about. I have a bulging disc in my lower back and I thought that was where most of my pain was coming from. However, now my hands feel like they are swollen all the time and are hard to use at times, but the doctor says my hands are not swollen enough to worry about. Plus, I get tired a lot easier now. Have a hard time sleeping because of the pain in my hips and sides. I am not taking any meds because they want to put me on antidepressants and I have tried them in the past but I have gotten violent on them. I work for a nursing home and need to be calm as much as possible. Thanks for listening to me. Hope to hear from everyone.
