Hi, I have been suffering in denial with fibromyalgia for some time now. At first I just thought it was a name given to something the doctors couldn't give an answer to! But reading more about it and other peoples experiences I now accept that I have got it. Just recently I tripped - didn't fall just tripped over a small branch and it made almost every part of me ache like mad and has taken four weeks so far to start to get back to feeling a little more comfortable. However I have also started with pain in my collar bone which seems to be getting worse. I have been to my doctor who is sending me for an x-ray to rule other sinister things out.
I have been doing the Alexander Technique for the past 10 weeks and feel like it is helping me - in fact I was feeling really good just before my 'trip' !!!! you can imaging how I felt after that - I got and still am a little depressed about it. My doctor says that the Alexander Technique is probably one of the best classes anyone with Fibromyalgia could go to so I will stick at it.
End of rant - I don't usually do anything like this, I tend to just keep everything to myself but sometimes you just have to let go !
