Im 17 i was fit then i started getting all over my body and stopped working out and i thought i had injuries
And the doctors said im injuried but they werent sure so 2 years later i went to a doctor while travelling with my family
He did all tests, rehmatoid ,inflammation everything negative
So i told him can i work out again , he said yes but u gotta start real slow
I asked why while i have nothing ..he said well u have a condition called fibromyalgia
I dont know what is it extacly
But i can tell u that i get days where my muscles ache and weird feelings and i forget alot i dont focus in my classes wich got my in lots of problems with my teachers and they know **** about my conditions in my country
Also extreme depression for the past 2 years for no reason
So my dad told me to do vitamin D test and my vit D was less than 5 ,do you think vitamin d was the problem ,?
Cuz one of my relatives told me he had low vitamin d and he had nearly the same symptoms before he used vitamin d medication
Hey sweetie... First I am so sorry that you have this illness!!! It's a hard thing to have!!! Especially being so young !!! I was diagnosed 6 months ago, and I hurt so bad I could hardly get out of bed!!! Yes you get really tired and hurt all over!! And yes forgetfulness is part of it!!! I take 10,000 iu's of vitamin D a day, but it's not what the problem is, although it will help you!! Especially with the immune system...
My doc put me on Gabapentin for the pain, it does help but it really never goes away... Good days bad days... But!!! This medication has cause some weird side effects!!! One, Weight gain... I weighed 132 lbs 6 month ago, now I weigh 151 lbs.. I have worked very hard to keep the weight off but this medication makes you gain weight, then my eye-site is blurred, and I have horrible gastric upset and heart burn... And lastly no labido... So I talked with my doc and we are going to wean me off the gabapentin, and try a drug called Topamax...
As for working out!!! DO IT!! If you can!! Just don't over do it!! Do it slowly or you will pay for it!! Since it's been a couple of years.... But exercise really does help with the pain, as long as it's done slowly... Swimming, hot tub soaks, massage, stuff like that does really help... As for concentration, that's a battle I think for any fibro suffer, along with being really tired.
Again I am so so sorry that you have this nasty illness!!! And if I could take your pain away I would!!! No one deserves this, but there are so many people who have it... Try to ear as healthy as possible and take really good vitamins and some acupuncture helps to.... Hugs sweetie!!
