My doctor and I decided about a year ago that it was official, I have it, although we have not pursued and or noted it, because of insurance issues and other cervical issues that I have! I was diagnosed with IBS and Depression about 20 years ago, and didn't really put 2 and 2 together until about 3 years ago and then started the long process of ruling out everything else. I have had cervical issues for about the same length of time as the IBS, and just had that fixed in early May. I have all of the aches, pains, fatigue, etc...that is listed everywhere you read. After reviewing SH for several months now, I find it very disheartening that there are not more people that post in this particular forum
I know we can not be the only few here! I would like to see others tips on how to get thru the day to day issues of fibro! I also have severe arthritis in the cervical and thoracic areas, besides now a fusion. So any help I can get or give has to be benificial to all. I have a high stress desk job which I think makes my fibro worse. I have to stand and walk every 30-45 minutes at work and then at night once I sit and try to relax I look like an 80 year old when trying to stand up and I am only 46!!! It stinks!!!! I hope all of you are doing well today and dealing the best you can with this evil }:) condition. Take care.
