    Chronic pain/condition blogs


    I have been thinking about writing about chronic pain and other conditions for quite some time. I would say I have a lot of thoughts and opinions, and I used to be good at expressive writing (if I've gotten the term right) and getting things down on paper. I was hoping I could potentially make people feel less alone. However, I'm unsure of where I could post things like this or how to get started? Any advice would be appreciated💜

    Rough couple of days... #MentalHealth #BipolarDisorder #FibromyalgiaDiagnosis #RheumatoidArthritis

    The last few days have really been physically hard for me. Every inch of my body has been in pain and it's causing my mental health to suffer. I feel like my brain is swollen, my head hurts so bad. I've been super sad lately. I've had some really terrifying dreams that are making me dought really. I am starting to sink...😪

    Did anyone develop a stutter with their fibromyalgia symptoms?

    I am newly diagnosed and while trying to figure out what's going on I saw some people mention "speech problems" as a symptom. My stutter developed in late high-school and is worst when anxious or fatigued so I was wondering if it could in reality be a symptom of fibromyalgia. Willing to discuss further. #FibromyalgiaDiagnosis #Fibromyalgia

    Official Diagnosis #FibromyalgiaDiagnosis #Fibromyalgia #ChronicFatigue

    Hello my Mighty Family! Saturday I got my official diagnosis…after 20 years! I am so grateful I found an amazing rheumatologist who sees patients on a Saturday, and who was willing to spend two hours with me…after looking over the lab results I took in with me, he came into the room and spent the first hour and a half asking me questions, actively listening to my responses, and then sharing that based on everything he was confident in my diagnosis and confident in his treatment plan. Even though I have always known fibromyalgia runs in my family and I have talked to Doctors about it, he was the first to finally acknowledge that, yes…I have a chronic illness, but with his help it will not be what defines me nor will it be the end of my career. Medication management, getting my pain under control with a nerve blocker and a prescribed NSAID (as Advil and Tylenol don’t help and I did not want any opioids) because he said my pain tolerance is way too high, and something to help my sleep. Started treatment and feeling a little better, minus the #FibroFog . Anyone have any suggestions for managing the fibrofog?

    Today is one of those days where my skin is on fire and my clothes feels like needles. I’m stuck in bed and pray this flair up ends soon #bed #fybro


    I'm new here!

    Just wanted to say hello. I was just diagnosed with fibromyalgia in February. I'm pretty new to all of this. I'm happy to finally have some answers. I don't have a support system at home. My husband refuses to believe anything is wrong with me. According to him, "I don't know what real pain feels like." "I'm just lazy." So I'm hoping you all can help me with a support system. #FibromyalgiaDiagnosis #supportsystem

    I'm having a really bad mental health day where I feel I'm going to explode!! It's not been too bad lately but today is bleurgh. Have deleted this post several times. I have no one to talk to who understands and I think why should I burden them anyway. I've been here before but this is a bad one. I don't understand why it comes back worse than ever.

    Thank you for letting me post on here.
