    Hi Tanisha. I was diagnosed around 30 yrs of age. I’m now 50. Unfortunately I’ve developed secondary illnesses. I too, have struggled with pain and discomfort. Only as of late have I had issues with memory issues. I have learned over the years to take things in stride and do away with unnecessary stress and complications

    Hey Tanisha, I was diagnosed when I was 24 I’m now 30… I completely understand.. It like my brain doesn’t work as fast or as good as it use too! I feel like I haven’t accomplished much because of this condition except my 5 beautiful children. I finished my associates degree and then fibromyalgia came along and I haven’t been able to go back to school or work consistently.. I’m at the point now where I’ve gave up trying to work. I’ve developed Raynuads Syndrome as well.. I’m not sure if it’s from the fibromyalgia but I assume it is smh.. now I just take each day as it comes

    Unfortunately with fibromyalgia comes brain fog. I feel your pain. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia at age 32 at the peak of my driving career at Greyhound. I am now 42 and can barely get up somedays to get my son ready for school. I have a really hard time remembering dates and times of appointments and events and I have lost alot of my memory of things that I have done. So you are not alone. The only thing that used to help me focus when I couldn't was Abilify another pill. It didn't bring back old memories but it helped me remember things I had to do in my present day to day life.

    Hello Tanisha. Stella here. I was diagnosed at 20, and I'm almost 46, I struggle with it, and have done everything I could or was directed to do. The meds are scary. But finally, in my state, medical marijuana was legalized. For three years, I have had relief. It has also treated, nerve damage, Rheumatoid arthritis pain, psoriatic arthritis and osteoarthritis pain, gastroparesis, chronic PTSD anxiety and depression. It isn't for everyone but, maybe CBD o can help as it's allover the place now. And, we are here on this app. I hope this helps you know you are not alone.
