Looking for other fibro sufferers to chat/commiserate with. I have a feeling there are probably quite a few of us here since we have so much 'down time' when we can't do much else.

Would love to hear from others.

Hi! Yes, I've noticed that changes or extremes in the weather affect me greatly. Was out in the cold today and my fingertips were burning from the cold even with gloves on. It's a strange and frustrating condition.

I don't have IC, but I have IBS, which I believe is related to the fibro. They both flare at the same time.

There is a lot of info available on the internet. Here is one with a pretty basic explanation:

I have had fibromyalgia for over 20 yrs. I spend most of my time on IWIN. I feel I have gotten worse lately but I'm not sure why. My sympathies.

I have fibromyalgia too.It was a long frustrating road to get the right diagnosis though - very frustrating. Am interested in how others deal with it as well. I find many people dont understand it at all.

I don't know about you gals, but this frigid weather is killing me. It's been single digits in the daytime and below zero at night for what seems like forever. Tomorrow it's supposed to get up to 20, yippee! I haven't been out of the house for 10 or 11 days, so tomorrow is the day. So looking forward to it.

Hope everyone is feeling well.

I agree ... severe & unstable weather always make my fibro worse. Along with fibro I have depression, anxiety, migraines, chronic sleep disorder & diabetes. The weather seems to effect them too (except the diabetes)... or maybe it's just when the fibro is worse they are too. I can't wait until spring actually arrives... but I plan on getting out this weekend... it's supposed to be in the 40's

Wow, we have the same list, except I'm "only" pre-diabetic. I know so many people who have the same cluster of disorders. I think they all go hand in hand and feed off of each other.

I think you are right about them going together... it's like one creates the other. I saw your other post re: fav songs too. I wonder what else we have in common?

I'd been diagnosed in 1980. Now it's not so bad, by mostly ignoring it, I can sto the pain before it starts. You see I can not take pain killers.

I have had depression and sleep problems for years too. i have restless leg syndrome that adds to the sleep issues. Then, I am so tired the next day, all i want to do is sleep. Its a vicious cycle. Family and friends dont seem to understand much of the time either, which contributes to the depression.Really wish more ppl understood.

I agree, it's the lack of understanding and compassion from family and co-workers that is the hardest for me. Really hard to get through every day as it is, but to have people around you basically calling you a faker or a liar is devastating. Just because it isn't something that can be corrected by surgery, or has a specific test that says 'yes, you have this' doesn't mean it's not real. They just think you look okay on the outside, so what's the big deal. Just get up and get moving and get over it. If only it were that easy.

We understand each other though. That's why it's good to have someone to talk to who understands what you're going through.

indeed we do understand one another... it's nice to know that someone does. As you say just because they can't see it is no reason to assume we are just making it up or that we are lazy. I can understand when it is a meer aquaintance, but it really hurts when it's someone close. Sometimes I don't know which is worse the actual physical pain of fibro or the emotional pain that comes from having the condition

Hi magr, nice to meet you but sorry to hear you're a member of the 'fibro club'. I can't speak for your situation, but in my case I know I had it long before it was diagnosed. From speaking to others, I think that is the case for many, if not most, fibro patients. It just takes so long for doctors to rule out this and that, and finally take your symptoms seriously. Then, of course, it takes the right doctor to even be willing to make the diagnosis. Sadly, there are still too many who are living in the past on this one and don't accept it as a reality. The rheumatologist who finally diagnosed me (within about 10 minutes of my walking in his door) then refused to see me again or treat me because "he doesn't like to treat fibro pts" and "you know, there's no cure for this". Infuriating. Idiots like that shouldn't be practicing. There's no cure for a lot of medical conditions/diseases. Do they just show those patients the door? There's such a stigma attached to this condition, and it needs to end. I can only suggest finding a new doctor if you don't feel yours is meeting your needs. You deserve better.

I've had fibro for 12 years, at least that's when they first put a name on what was wrong. Finally found a doctor who paid attention. Recently some drugs have hit the market that are supposed to help, Lyrica and Savella. My doctor has prescribed both -- and they are helping tremendously. I can actually sleep at night and get up in the morning now, and get a few things done without being exhausted and in massive pain in less than 10 minutes. I still hurt if somebody tries to hug me or if I bang my arm or leg into something it practically kills me, but the overall pain is about 50% less.

Yup me too!!! I haven't been properly diagnosed but I fit the bill you know and I have very bad IBS that I have under control now but seems to get worse when the FM gets worse. I deal with it by pushing through on the days I feel better and when I can't hardly move I try taking a little easier, but winter is hell!!! Summer I live for summer!! I am sorry to see you all suffer with this but it is nice to see the support and similarities. I also have Post Trama which is believed to be a cause of FM. My Dr. has not been able to diagnose me, unfortunately so many Dr. don't know enough about the desease yet.

Yup, fibro and all the lovely things that go with it. I hadn't linked it with the IBS, but it makes sense.

I also have post trauma, interesting that it's believed to be a cause. Years ago my doctor told me he had a theory it was brought on by PTS. Smart man. Interesting about the new meds, I'll have to ask him about them.

I totallly agree about finding the right doctor. I was being treated by a doctor in a major hospital before this one. My doctor was so clueless that I'd ask her if she thought such and such a treatment would help, and she wouldn't even know what I was talking about. I asked to see a specialist about it, and it turned out she was it! The one I have now is always updated on the latest things, and if I hear of something he hasn't heard of, he checks it out.

Hello, my name is Brenda and I have fibromyalgia too. I also suffer from IBS prediabetic, depression anxiety disorder, restless leg syndrome and thyroid problems. I have tried Lyrica and the relief was short lived but the weight gain was not so I stopped taking it. No one understands this condition and getting help is hard. I am 47 and somedays I feel like I am 65, The pain is terrible and nothing relieves it. Somedays I just wanna lay on the couch on a heating pad all day. This rainy cold weather is not helping at all. On the days I feel good I over do it then suffer for a few days. I am so sick of hearing that I am not sick that I look fine and that I need to get over it. Don't we all wish it was that easy.

Hi Brenda, sorry to hear of your suffering. Had the same experience with Lyrica. I agree that having to deal with people not understanding, or even trying to understand, is as bad as the illness itself. I've learned that I have to cut the negativity out of my life, even if it means separating from family members. I'm putting my health first, and I don't have room any more for emotional abuse or the added stress of dealing w/those who choose not to educate themselves about FM.

I am almost in shock. I have had Fibromyalgia for about five years. Too be looking through a gaming forum and all of a sudden be reading about myself in each post actually brought tears to my eyes. I guess I didn't realize how lonley it was. Stubbing my toe and thinking it would be far less painful to break it. Being tired all of the time. I don't know why I just can't make myself sleep at night. I know it is partly because a good night sleep means a very painful morning. I actually laid down last night at two a.m. and made myself go to bed. My heart was pounding a million miles an hour like I was getting ready to bungy jump?
I have severe edema in my legs and feet that never goes away, has anyone experienced this? My back is the very worst, do others find this true? I have been taking care of my three little grandsons for the past few years and so have not had a chance to even think about myself. Their mother is back and that has changed but i don't know where to begin. What kinds of things bring you relief? My very best friend was diagnosed befor it was really known. We were apart many years but live close now. She is on SSI. I have no ins. now, I take Methadone, which is a sad story of being niave when first diagnosed. I have cut my dose drastically but am aftaid to quit altogether because of withdrawl and the pain I know I will be in without any medication or treatment. I am sorry to have gone on so long but I am very touched to be able to hear everyones story and to talk to you.

Blessings,
Nancy

This is EXACTLY what happened to me. I thought I was lucky to get confirmation about my diagnosis, but you are right, I can't believe what a jerk he was. And... he is suppose to be the specialist.

You don't happen to live in Wisconsin do you? Sounds like we had the same doctor! Unfortunately, there are a lot of jerks out there, so probably not. Hang in there, hope it gets better for you.

Hi Nancy. It is amazing how the lists of symptoms and health issues are so eerily similar for many people. But it's 'all in our heads' right? lol


I can totally identify with many of the things you listed. Sleep issues, anxiety, and endless fatigue. I also have edema of my legs and feet with kidney disease and heart abnormalities. This combination has me pushing my doctor to look further at this to see if it could be lupus rather than FM. They are very similar, but when organs start to become involved, lupus can be suspected. As to your back pain, the worst of my fm pain is in my upper back and shoulders. I can't stand at the sink to prepare a meal or wash dishes for more than 5min at a time. I have to sit down for a break because the pain makes me feel like I'm going to pass out. As to what brings relief, I haven't much to offer as yet. I've tried several meds but nothing has done more than 'take the edge off' the pain, and they each came with a laundry list of side effects like weight gain, more fatigue, and more foggy-headedness (don't need any more of any of those things!)

Just have to keep faith and push your doctor hard to find something that works for you. It does help to talk to others who are going through the same thing, so maybe find a support group in your area. Your clinic or local hospital might be able to refer you to one. Hope you can find some relief soon.

i can't take the new drugs due to other meds I'm on.It's sad the thing that we need most (hugs) hurts so much. I could be having a great day & someone will tap my shoulder & instant pain with brain freeze. I wonder why more men don't get it. Are they misdiagnosed? I have only met 2.Bless us all for carrying on.

Hi everyone. I too have had Fibro for just over 1 1/2 yrs now. I have been off work all year and thought I was going to be permanently disabled. I am a nurse, but it was my RMT who actually diagnosed me. Go figure. Anyway, about two months ago I started going for Bowen Therapy. IT HAS CHANGED MY LIFE!!! It costs about the same as an RMT, but hurts a whole lot less. The fog cleared about 2 wks ago and I am feeling so much more like myself it is like a miracle. It does not work for everyone, but my Therapist says she has a great success rate for all sorts of conditions. Look it up, give it a try, and let me know how it works for you. I wanted to do a study on its effectiveness for Fibro, but have not found the money yet, so your feedback could help us all. Good luck.

One more that suffers from this dreaded feeling. I have 8 displaced spinal disks, 4 upper in the neck and 4 lower back. I suffer from Arthritis and just had knee surgery 5/10/2011. Last week, I had to take my roommate to the hospital (has type 2 diabetes, and other factors, but kept vomiting and dehydrated) so he collapsed on me while trying to get him to car, and I think I undid what they fixed in my knee. Been swollen since and hurts nonstop. So when Fibro kicks up, even though I take medication for it, I have no control over it. It keeps me limited and I am not used to having to sit or lay down and do nothing. I have always been one to be on the go 22/7. I have to sleep sometime in the 24/7. I hope yours does not bother you ALL the time, and good luck.

I think one of the reasons we are ignored is because it is mostly women who get Fibro. So, I suggest just lke the song "Sisters are doin it for themselves" that we start doin it for ourselves. We must start beging more active. We cant go out marching, unless we put wheels on our beds, lol, but we can use the power of the internet. Do we start a petition and then post it on FB?

Any ideas my sisters?

WOW!! I last posted on this forum in Jan &, now all the people who've posted their stories about fibro makes a person realize that there are alot of other people out there in the same boat that I am. I too have had problems finding a medication to help ease the pain w/o causing a lot of other problems. Lately, my back problems have gotten worse, with muscle spasms & a lot of pain in my lower back & my legs. I also have curvature of the spine, located in my middle to upper back. I work at WalMart as a cashier, so I'm on my feet alot. I've been going to a pain clinic & my doctor has tried several different meds, with no success until she gave me a prescription for Meloxicam. So far it helps enough so that I can work. Cold winter months here in Iowa also about kill me. Hope to hear from any of you on the forum any time. Mary

Hello to all my fellow sufferers, I got an article in my email which may offer some help to some of you.

You never know what will or won't work for you but there is no such thing as too much info when looking for answers, so I'm putting this link for those that are interested. http://www.realage.com/check-your-health/feeling-normal-with-fibromyalgia?src=nl&dom=realage&list=surf&link=P2&ad=fibro-sb&eid=1010651271&memberid=17411322

No worries my friends... it's only info... not a link to sell you something. I hope that at least one of you may benefit from the sharing

I have Fibro as well. My life came to a grinding halt 2 years ago and I have been basically bedridden. I guess the good news is that I can play all the games I want. I am trying to get on SSDI but they say it could be another year before I get approved.

I am living with my best friend and her husband. They have very kindly taken me in and are supporting me. But this is so hard. I am 37 and I feel like my life is over.

Thanks for posting this thread, I actually discovered one thing I hadn't thought about and it is comforting to know there are others like me out there.

Just an update. I said I was taking Meloxicam for my fibro & it was helping, until just recently. I also take high blood pressure medicine & it started interferring with my high blood pressure meds, so I stopped taking the Meloxicam. Didn't want to end up having a stroke or worse. Side effects for increased strokes & worse are known, so I quit taking it. It felt like my heart was working harder & I missed almost a week of work. Feeling better now.

Glad you're feeling better. That's what scares me - you take a med for one thing and it causes 3 other problems.

I have fibro too was diagnosed in 2000 but Dr. said that I had it prior to that w/o it being found. I take neurontin900 mg 4 times a day, needless to say I sleep every afternoon for about 4 hrs. I also take zoloft and was advised that cymbalta may not work as well as this combo. I also have widespread arthritis and degenerative disc disease. I need to have a spinal fusion but had a bad time after my knee replacement ending up w/pneumonia in ICU for 10 days. So I will do what I have to do until the surgery is the last resort.I was getting epidurals for 5 yrs and now the space is too small so that is out,my ortho referred me to a chronic pain specialist who also treats fibro so I got 2 for 1 lol. I am on the generic duragesic patch which combined w/the other 2 meds helps alot. The thing that gets me is when my skin hurts and nothing helps that I get weird pains and aches in really odd places. Well thanks for having a place to share Will check back often

I am in a stage where I have had 1 hypo, take 325mg Hydrocordone, as needed, 750mg nabumetone, Zoloft, and Traszodone to help sleep. the pains that interfer with every activity I try and do. I am going on 3 years and just in last 4 months have a Doctor that stood up and noticed the fibro with ostio. arthritis. We keep plugging away as I have never given up till recently and then kicked myself in the butt...there is help out there we just need to research and investigated all the aspects of this horrible diease and not take the proverbal " it may be a mental issue".
(I also was taking Meloxicam, it no longer treated the issues. )

I've had this for many years. Like most of you it is mixed with lots of other conditions, just to keep me on my toes. I have fibro, lupus, hasimoto's hypothyroid, restless leg, massive spinal damage (permenantly disabled), chronic fatigue, blood clotting problems from the lupus that messes with everything...just too many to count. What they have in commom is that almost all of yhem have auto-immune origins. This seems to run in my family.
What bothers me is how illness takes over your whole life.
