Hi, I've been i'll for about 3yrs and was diagnosed with Fibro about a year ago. It affects me very severely and I can only walk a very short distance and stand briefly and have to use a wheelchair to leave the house (thats on ok days on bad ones I can move at all).
I try to eat well and rest and I do 4min yoga in the mornings on the days I can bear it and doing this is helping me to manage and cope with my symptoms better, but its not actually helping me to get any better its just keeping them at bay.
I've spoken to the Doc and they said what I'm doing is good and I should keep it up but I shouldn't expect to get any better. I'm only just 30 and am finding it hard to acept that I might spend the rest of my life in so much pain and in a wheelchair. Has anyone else been in a wheelchair at one time and managed to improve enough to stop using it??? And is there any thing else anyone thinks I should be doing to try to improve things??? Any help would be very much appreciated as I'm feeling very lost right now.
