  • Loneliness with fibromyalgia

    My fibro has been in a major flare up for so long that I can’t remember a moment without pain. I take my meds. I try to walk daily-when I can get out of bed! My worst part is that the only person who believes or understands my illness is my daughter. No one else Not even siblings. My parents and husband have passed. I hurt horribly and feel so alone. Anyone else? Thanks for being here

    Chronic pain

    I was recently diagnosed with fibromyalgia last October. I had been having "flare ups" prior to the diagnosis since 2016 but didn't know what it was since I have other medical issues as well.

    I have no idea what's wrong with me

    Hey guys, I’m hoping that someone may be able to help me understand a pain that I’ve been having for 3-4 months now. I’m a 31 year old male. The pain is a stabbing/tender pain under my left pectoral muscle bordering on my armpit, and is there most of the time at varying degrees. At times it’s also accompanied by nausea (felt in my throat), occasional headaches, neck, shoulder and middle back pain. I also have ankle pain most of the time in both ankles and a bad right wrist (wrist is most likely from....
