I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia seven years ago. It seems like I’m getting worse and worse every year. Can anyone relate??

      I've been diagnosed since 2015. I have many ups and downs with it. I have learned how to listen to my body. It's hard but it has helped me. A lot of foods I eat and activities I perform can make the flare ups come and go. My flare ups seems worse when I eat sugary, starchy, dairy, and fatty foods. Weight gain and stress also plays a significant part with my flare ups. If I start eating green leafy vegetables and fresh fruits, the flare ups tend to ease up.

      I’ve had it for about three years now, its gotten worse since. I’m scared that it’ll keep getting worse. Im young, but at this rate I probably will be unable to work by the time i’m 30.

      I was diagnosed at 9 years old. I am now 29. For me, it’s gotten worse. I’m sorry, I wish I could give better news.

      I let my doctors know when something doesn’t feel right or if I’m hurting more than usual. I have different kinds of doctors to help with my needs. I am vocal about my chronic illness. But they can only do so much.

      I haven't had it long enough to know. But it scaries me.
