Hello to Everyone,
Thanks for the warm welcome. I hope that I am able to assist and learn much from everyone here on MedHelp. Just so you all know, I am no stranger to Fibromyalgia and CFS. I have was officially diagnosed in 2008, but I have been suffering with the illness and other co-occurring problems like osteoarthritis of the spine, sciatica, degenerative disc disease and many others issues since I was in my late teens.
I admit I don't know everything, but I am always open to learning and definitely willing to accept new opportunities for learning. I am always reading about new medical breakthroughs and scientific studies. If any of you are privy to new information please send it my way as I eat it up like chocolate!
I look forward to meeting as many of you as I possibly can. Although this illness is a rough one, it is manageable and I believe using this forum as a support tool for strength is one way to help become healthier! Again thank you for welcoming me!
Hi, Welcome Dustybrown. I have a question. I suffer from bad pelvic pain as well as fibro. They can't seem to find out why the pelvic pain is so bad. Once I was diagnosed with pubis symphsis but my hip sockets and tail bone hurt and I have bad cramps that I cannot tell if they are like uterine or colon. I am 64 and went thru menapause 20 years ago. Does anyone know anything I might try.
I am the community leader of the child behavior forum. I too, have fibromyalgia and am starting to find out some of the other things that I have such as degenerative disc disease which I have probably had for about 10 or more years. I have about 90%-95% of the symptoms that tend to go with fibro. I hope that we can chat one day and get to know each other. Maybe we can be of help to each other. At least I hope. Congratulations!
