He....

    Fibro and neuropathy

    I also was diagnosed with fibro. Lost my radial nerve and zaw neurologist and was told i also have neuropathy. Have pain in ball of feet like walking on rocks. Also have stinging like ants biting. I now cant fedl sharp on feet. You should see if you have neuropathy and or diabetes or thyroid problems. There is medication for it but be aware that it causes weight gain. I stopped it but pain is worse. Also have breast cancer with lymphadema. What luck. Very active any way. Good luck.

    Minimal pain and symptoms

    I was diagnosed two years ago. I take Effexor for anxiety which also helps to keep my pain/symptoms to a minimum. I am wondering if anyone else lives without flareups or pain monthly? I can go for a month without the pain. However I do not sleep thru the night. I will get a flare if I consume too much sugar or experience trauma. I am not complaining of not having alot of pain many days, but do wonder if anyone here was diagnosed and has a lighter case like me. Believe me I have had flareups where....
