It can take time to find out just what is going on, they tend to rules out other things first as I do feel they prefer not to rush headlong into the 'fibro diagnosis'. Best thing you can do is keep a diary of what is happening to you, when it happens, how long it last for etc. It gives them a good idea of what is going on and it is easier for you too. What I hate is going to an appointment and then remembering something I meant to say while I was in there. A lot of illnesses overlap and I suppose we could all say 'oh yes it has to be that or no it isn't. By doing this we work ours brains up into a frenzy over it and this can actually make symptoms worse. My torubles begam 26 years a go and back then it took four years to give me an answer. I wish you look on your journey and we are here to support you xxxxx
Well I would have been twenty two then. It started about 6 months before I met my present day hubby, and I have been with him 25 years, for some reason I keep saying 26 years lol. I was in a very violent relationship(my now hubby was my next door neighbour). My ex smashed me over the face with a safety gate and split my eye open(above the eye) I had a perfectly L shaped cut from the bottom bar. It was stitched but I got a bad infection in it and became quite poorly, so I am thinking that may have had something to do with it plus all the stress of being beaten by him. My now hubby begged me to leave and go out wiht him instead. He is four years younger than me and if it had not been for him I would have married my ex through fear. I have been in pain ever since with the fibro especially as it is chronic but I am the happiest I have ever been. It takes time but you do get used to actually having fibro but you never get used to the pain, I think you just accpet it is there. I do hope you get to the root of whatever is going on with you as nothing is worse than feeling so bad and not knowing why. Please do not worry if I take time to respond, I am not ignoring you in any way but I am also my daughters carer and I do not get on here until between 4 & 8pm.
We all have our own private hell that we have gone through. Stress exacerbates fibro so it may not have started it but it will not have helped it hun. I have popped the plantar fascii in my heel so walking for me right now is hell. I should be in a pastercast, great Xmas photos that would make, so no way. Good luck with the tests xxxxx
