hi mandy. I have had fibro for appx 20 years. It starts with pain and tenderness in one area usually but over time it can spread over entire body. As PlateletGal said check with your Dr. On this forum we are here to help and give you the emotional support of friends. I joined just recently but it has really helped me. Good luck with the DR I hope he/she can help you.
Well if you want to know how i feel with my fibromyalgia, i feel at times like i have been run over by a train and lived. Headaches, nausea, insomnia, joint pain all over my body that aches like i am dying, joint stiffness, depression, sensitive to cold weather and rain, burning sensations in my muscles, foggy memory, dizziness, muscle pain, fatigue and maybe more. I am in constant pain 24/7 and was bed ridden last year for 7 months and could not even walk from the pain. After 7 months in bed, I am now able to walk, and on my good days even go outside to the store, but I cannot do housework, grocery shopping, lift anything heavy, walk more than 20 minutes without having to sit down, cannot sit long, cannot stand long, and cannot lay down long due to pain. Well thats my day anyway, but hey, life goes on. Ive been in constant pain for 37 yrs, and you just have to get on with life, dont you. A positive attitude is vital, as depression can set in big time. I have cried myself to sleep many time over again just because of the pain, i sleep packed in dry ice to numb my pain, and i am extremely frustrated that a lot of people do not understand, but my positive attitude carries me through.
