Stamp - Fibromyalgia Sucks by onnawufei Stamp - Fibromyalgia Sucks by onnawufei
Because it DOES!

I'd heard of fibromyalgia before but didn't really have any idea what it was until I started having really bad back pain that nothing seemed to help. Then it went to my knees, and I started feeling really exhausted for no apparent reason. That's when my best friend's mom (who is awesome) suggested that I might have fibromyalgia and I looked it up. I went to the doctor not too long later and yup. Within an hour he told me that's what I had. Since then it's gotten worse and I now have pain in my hips and there are times when it hurts just to be touched in certain places. It's very rare for me not to be in any pain at all. 99.9% of the time something hurts to some degree.

There's no cure for fibromyalgia. Doctors don't even know what exactly causes it, and some of them don't believe it even exists. People with fibro have to manage their time along with their pain. Do I do some cleaning after work, or do I do something fun? I can't do both, I don't have the energy.

So yeah. It SUCKS.

I've had it for 3.5 years now, and it totally does SUCK............BIG TIME, to say the very least.
I have constant pain from my shoulders down to my toes, including numbness in both feet and hands.

My mom has fibromyalgia, and she has IBS, acid reflux, and arthritis on top of it, so there are times in which she's in a living hell, especially during her flare-ups. I feel so bad for her because she's in so much pain, and there's nothing I can do for her.

I will proudly place this in my journal to show my support for those who have this disease. :D

Ugh, that's so awful. :< I know how hard it is to deal with just having fibro, so I have so much respect for people who have to deal with other things on top of it and somehow manage to still go on living. Your mom is awesome.
