- DX FIBRO
Hi, I'm Katie. I'm a 31 yr old insurance agent, wife of ten years and mom to 4 boys ages 8, 7, 1 and 4 months. I've had issues that I've been told since I was 15 are all because of my hypothyroidism. After many years of ignoring many symptoms the severe pain started in about 2 years ago. It waned some during my pregnancies but hit me like a brick soon after delivery. FINALLY I was able to see an excellent rheumatologist who himself is a fibro patient. Friday he told me that without a doubt I have fibromyalsia and probably have for a long time but it just got worse gradually. Anyhow. He has me starting with a sleeping pill and figure out what works to help me get better sleep then move on to muscle relaxers and Mirapex if I can tolerate it. Thanks for listening !
