Thanx for posting this...greatly appreciated! FM is no picnic. I have Fibro and MS and both cause problems with sleep, terrible pain and more. The
crappy thing about both dis-eases, the symptoms and painful problems don't always show or are evident so folks around you dismiss it. I just had an
anvil dropped on me the other day at a thread of mine where I was called a hypochondriac or a druggie....I guess there are quite a few people that
think it is a mental scenario or some such. I can assure folks that both diseases are no picnic.
I don't take anything for either. They tried peddling the anti-depressant route on me but I didn't like that and that ended that.. I won't even take
tylenol as fibro can irratate the liver. Alllergic to aspirin and anti-inflammatories. So I take nothing, try and eat
Folks that think it is from improper diet or a new disease....not so sure about that! It all started for me years ago when I was a vegetarian, (GMO)
hadn't started that much back then yet. I took all kinds of sensible vitamins/minerals/herbs. Excercised plenty daily. Didn't do drugs or smoke...yet,
got sick. Was thin also....no junk food. I'll never know what started it all....the nearby fracking chemicals? Du I was exposed too? Guess I'll never
know. I hate it when I read that it is somehow the patients fault...that can't necessarily or always be the case.
The other prob...no matter what info or research study or medical article or website that is presented, so many folks say they aren't reliable or some
such. Those diseases are big money makers tho so perhaps not enuf info will ever be presented anywhere...yet, I think folks should give such info like
what you and others have found a chance.
It is all very painful, causes a myriad of problems and is not "make believe". I post here all hours of the day and nite as sleep is rare yet fatigue
It really, really hurts. Hypochondriac labels hurt too.
It is difficult when there is no one thing that seems to help. I don't take any of the prescription type drugs they push. I had a family member that
had drug probs and we helped get that turned around but I would not want to chance the same path. That was 13 yrs. ago and the person is clean. I've
seen too much relevant to what such behavior does. I have a daughter that has many health probs and I worry about what her doc does/prescribes. It can
be an easy trap to fall into, even for so called legit health reasons. I won't do it. The pain does bring fun and quality of life way down.
