What's New in fibromyalgia diagnosis


Hi everyone! I hope you all are hanging in there. Recently I have been having an issue with my parents. They were supportive and understanding of me for fibromyalgia but lately they have been using it against me. I am not able to do a lot of the things I used to, and I tell them that I don’t use having fibromyalgia as an excuse. I would LOVE and WISH I could do some of the things I used to. They have started to make it about them, and my feelings are flat out hurt.

As a Christian, I do know that things can change if God choses to heal and I have to be there for others. Being a Pastors wife and involved in Christian Biblical Counseling I have some tools to help myself. However, sometimes I feel less by the people I am there to help, because of all they know about me missing church or activities. Somehow, because I can't hold a job outside the home, when I am there to help others I feel they think I am weak and what wisdom I have to offer is not taken seriously. I know that anything I do that helps someone is because of the Lord. he gets all the glory and I love it. But my flesh is weak at times and I feel hurt. Pray I get over that for good!#Fibro Fog#Stroke #IBS #chronicm ygraines#AnxietyAttack #chronicbackpain #Chronicbackpain#FibromyalgiaDiagnosis

Do you have or know of someone with Fibromyalgia?

How is it impacting your/someone’s life? What positives do you/someone focus on to get through the day?

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
