Wondering if a past injury to your body can be flared up again with the fibro??
When I was 6, I had quite a bad car accident and fractured my collarbone and broke my pelvis.
I have had another RTA in 2005 leaving me with bad whiplash, and 2 disc in top of neck bulging, and 2 more at the base spine.
We went on holiday & i returned home with shingles in my ear.
prior to that i had to have 2 x surgeries to my left knee 10 yrs back.
Now, I have extreme pain from all of those areas/joints that had been weakened. It's the only way I can get my head round this whole debilitating illness. I understand the pain is just your brain telling your nervous system ouch.... That bloody really hurts, but I know I'm not going to die of it.
Sad thing is I really, really don't want to be in this much pain and confusion for the rest of my days...what's your views on you ended up with it??
I have not applied for any benefits yet, don't know if I'd be applicable. However I do have a blue badge as I can only work a small distance with out the pain getting to unbearable :-((
