    Fibromyalgia is it all in the HEAD.

    Hi, my name is Sylvia I'm almost 58 years old and have been diagnosed with FM approx 4 years ago. After 5 years of suffering numerous symptoms of which fatigue, to me was/is the worst. In and out of hospitals and ER rooms, to many to mention, no one could diagnose the problem/s. Until one day out of the blue, I started doing research desperation being my motivation, I stumbled on this word Fibromyalgia, after comparing various symptoms checking. I went to a Rhumetoligist that specializes in Fibromyalgia....

    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. But as soon as I get up they start. They will usually get worse as the day progresses. Sometimes they are just like pins and needles and then sometimes they get so intense they sting. The stinging will cause....

    low cardiac endurance?

    Hi! I am new to these message boards! I was diagnosed with chronic daily headaches with migraine components and fibromyalgia over 10 years ago. For the most part, I try to live my life like everyone else and often hide my aches and pains, but today I am REALLY hurting and thought to find a home with other fibro patients! I was wondering if anyone else with Fibro has low cardiac endurance and if it is related to the fibro? Even when I was working out at the gym for an hour and a half, religiously....

    Diagnosis

    Hi there I have been having symptons for a couple of years now and the doctors can't seem to figure out exactly what I have. It first started in 2016 when I got a headache that felt like it was cracking my head open, just after the headache started I battled to look at any lights. This got increasingly worse and I started getting a fever. I was exhausted and could not stay awake. About 3 hours later I went to the doctor. They admitted me into hospital straight away suspecting meningitis. I was....

    dancer withFibromyalgia

    I dance full time to a high level and I have fibromyalgia. I don’t recover as quickly as other and I’m in pain a lot more than others , everyone complains about their ‘aches and pains’ but none of them truly understand how much harder it is for me having fibromyalgia. I go to a performing arts school and dance average 3 hours a day to a high level , DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY TIPS ON HOW TO MANAGE MY FIBROMYALGIA ( feel like I’m going to crash at any point from exhaustion and pain)

    Interaction between Lyrica and Adderall

    I have been taking 100mg of Lyrica 3 times a day for several years now. I’ve never had any side effects. In fact I wouldn’t even know I was taking it except for the fact that I swallow a pill 3xs a day and it’s been working WONDERS. Last week my Psych prescribed me 10mg of Adderall XR once a day. I’m very careful to check all interactions when I’m prescribed a drug. If it will interact with Lyrica I won’t take it. Lyrica is the only thing that has worked this well and I will not give it up. Long....

    calves are burning

    I could barely get out of bed & walk the other day because of my calves. I've exercised on/off my entire life so I know what sore calves feel like. BUT I haven't exercised in over a month, so I honestly couldn't understand what I had done because it felt like I had run a marathon or started an exercise program like bootcamp, both leave you with sore calves & thighs. Today marks day 4 of the same pain and I'm stumped to understand the cause. It was this morning that I began....

    Low on spoons..

    Today I'm running on only a few spoons. Tying my shoes and putting my hair up was exhausting. Explaining to my husband how I feel today made me feel like a burden. I have had fibromyalgia for 10 years but only got an official diagnosis 16 months ago, because of my age. I'm 36. I thought I was just getting older lol. I have become well versed in fibromyalgia and run support groups in and around my hometown. If anyone has and questions or concerns feel free to ask me anytime. Chances are I....
