Default Re: is it normal for fibro sufferers to have lots of symptoms?

Yes. In the beginning I was miserable. If i lay around too much, pain. If i move too much, pain! I've learned that chemicals in air or foods aggregate pain. We don't use chemical cleaners, perfumes or cologne in house anymore. Plenty of substitutes nowadays. If you take a lot of opiate pain meds even those can over time make your body more pain sensitive. I spent 2 years tapering down from hydrocodone to tramadol which has helped. I also cut meat out of diet which has helped reduce burning/stinging pain all over. If i cheat and eat a fast food burger all the stinging comes back for the next 24-36 hours. So now I only treat myself to a good filet once in awhile that seems fine. I'm male and testosterone levels were low so building them up is helping me. A combination of all life changes has helped me get through the day better. Still have to be carefull not to aggregate pain. Its a learning process. Good luck!
