    Preparing for vaccines

    I'm new here. My daughter was diagnosed last year with Fibromyalgia and Chronic pain after 5 years of investigating and medical tests. She is 16 yeaes old. I'm trying to encourage her to stay as active as possible and not let these diagnoses become here identity. It's hard for me not knowing when I'm being supportive and when I'm nagging. I really have no idea what she is going through, but when she stops her activities she gets severly depressed. She is going to Mexico in March....
  • History of estrogen use and fibro

    Today I read that FM is the result of having your brain's pain messaging system rewired due to a repetitive stimulator. I took synthetic estrogen from age 30 to age 56 due to hysterectomy for endometriosis. I hardly slept more than a few hours every night due to the overstimulation of that drug. I have finally come upon something that begins to explain the cause of this maddening disease for me. I was diagnosed with FM over 20 years ago. I am just wondering if anyone else shares this experience....

    Pins and Needles

    Hi, i'm new so forgive if y'all have discussed all this before. But I am wondering about pins and needles. Does anyone here have constant pins and needles in their arms, shoulders, chest, back, stomach, legs and saddle area. The only time they are not there sometimes is when I wake up.

    I was diagnosed with FMS in 1984. I finally found a protocol that works for me and several thousand other people.

    I found Dr. Paul St. Amand's FMS protocol in 1998. I had my first good day six months later. I got progressively better until the pain, tiredness and sleeplessness finally went away. You can find the information on the web. Just search for "Dr. Paul St. Amand" and the web site will come up.

    Fibromyalgia pain

    I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia 7 years ago and I’ve tried everything exercises, medication, pt, Accupuncture, pain mgt classes and nothing has helped. The pain is getting worse, I have trouble sleeping and my fibromyalgia fog is at the max. I know I need to move /exercise more but the pain is so bad I have trouble getting out of the house. It’s a vicious cycle. Anybody have these issues I feel so alone.:(
