I've been dealing with symptoms of fibro for as long as I can remember (mostly the muscle and joint pain/fatigue and the CONSTANT exhaustion) and just recently found out that there's a diagnosis for what I'm feeling. I've told my doctor and she said diagnosis is a process, but I'm working on it. Any tips?

      *hugs for all* I feel your frustrations. One of the things that helped me with the joint pain was cutting out dairy (inflammatory) and gluten. Now I only get bad joint pain when I have a virus or infection. The fatigue, though... still looking for help with that.

      Vitamin D helps me so dose coffee or tea for the being tired part. As for work I had to stop working. That was the hardest part of this for me. Because now I’m having to live on only SSI witch barley pays my bills.

        @Rayfizz I work at McDonald's and if I work longer than 3 hours I get really fatigued and my joints hurt really bad. I try to work though because I need money for school

          @spaghetti_man yeah I can only imagine how hard that would be I’m so sorry. I had a hard time & I was only driving for work. Before I quit,I went down to driving two days a week & couldn’t even do that! So I don’t even know what I would do if I didn’t have my SSI. Again I’m so sorry 😞
