How long have you had it? What helps you alleviate the pain and symptoms?
After months of muscle and joint pain I was diagnosed with fibro yesterday. Now I know some people think its a bullshit diagnosis and not real, but at this point I'm glad to have any diagnosis instead of doctors thinking I'm a crazy lady or seeking meds.
I haven't been sleeping well, and the doctor said lack of sleep can make symptoms worse. So he prescribed Flexeril to help muscle pain and to help sleep..it knocked me out for four hours but then I woke up every hour after that.
I use heat when I can and that helps some.
Does anyone have some words of wisdom?
& please, if you don't have nothing nice to say, exit the post. I'm emotionally and physically exhausted, I'm sleep deprived, and always in pain. I don't have the patience at the moment to deal with hated and ignorance.
