Hello fellow fibromites.
I hope non of you are suffering too badly.
Below, is an article explaining the above which I found very interesting.
I started to think about the article and remember that when I was very young I suffered from agonizing pains in my legs that my parents and GPs called 'growing pains'. I wonder if that was the start of all this.
I also lost the ability to walk when I was younger. I was walking along, well running in front of Mum and then back to her , as kids do, when, suddenly I couldn't move and was rushed to hospital and put in an isolation ward. I think the Drs thought it was polio [it was at the end of the 1960s] but it wasn't. They didn't know what it was and put it down to 'a virus that attacked the part of my brain that controls my legs'. In other words, they didn't have a clue. Within weeks, without any physiotherapy, I started to walk again. Baby steps at first and then normally. Could this be related to my fibro - I'll never know
Anyway, I hope you find this article interesting, especially the part about opioids.
