it seems most people here have quite a list of symptoms.
I fractured my neck many years ago at c6 and about 4 years later was told I had fibro. I was bounced around the medical system and like many people here its not just fibro. I actually had them take fibro off my medical hx because I was having trouble getting treatment. I couldn't get an mri of my neck 3 years ago. I actually had to challenge my pcp. He did it and the degeneration was significant from C2 to T1 and scoliosis and other than that a very healthy spine! Went thru pt, improved slightly, then finally had two shots in my neck around the site of the fracture that is tender to the touch 20 years later. It helped. Fibro pain calmed down. Had about 2.5 good years and then I hurt my hip and I've been on that slippery slope of pain.
I work full time and have a child and just feel like I give up often. Not sure how to give up- but I just want to crawl in bed for a few days or something. HA!
The fibro fog seems much worse than ever. I have another round of shots, I am taking vit d and magnesium but if this shot doesn't get me back, my job will probably be in jeopardy. I have a strong work ethic but when I feel bad for a long period, it just doesn't matter much. You gotta be in a lot of pain to look forward to an injectioon in your neck!!
:? I just don't how to juggle everyting right now. How do you guys get thru it. Any insights are greatly appreciated!
