Depending on the years you've dealt w FM, do you feel IT is worsening or you YOURSELF is worsening?

      It’s definitely worsening. My mental state has actually improved but the pain I deal with on a daily basis has gotten consistently worse. It’s also winter in the United States and I live in the northeast where it’s very cold and that makes my pain ten times worse. I’m considering moving to the south where it’s warm.

      Mine definitely has gotten worse . I’m 65 and On June 3rd I had to take care of my 91 year father for 5 years . I had lived alone and came and went as I pleased . ( and had a job ) but my life has no longer been the life I knew . I have no help . Im depressed . Just been so rough on me ! My house is such a mess as I just site in my room when I don’t have to feed him .

      Diagnosed in 2016 I would say either it’s getting worse OR … something else is definitely going on.. I’m having symptoms ive never had.. it’s so much to deal with so I’m leaning more towards “something else is going on” …. No test were really done but in one doctors visit to a rheumatologist he said fibromyalgia!

      Mine is much better after 30 years since diagnosis. I do have other health concerns but fibro is way down the list.

      I think it goes hand in hand. It’s playing fire with fire. FM’s most common trigger initially is trauma, whether it be physical or mental. So if you feel or do what you did at the time that initially caused it, your body will always react in the same way it did.

      Mine has got worse in the last year. Get very stiff if I sit for to long. Have no motivation to do anything at all.

      Worsening! Mind, body connection is real. It is getting worse with time. So many other health problems arise! All combined reared CFS. I’m over it 😤 lost my positivity during the pandemic.

      It has been worsening, but I am also dealing with a couple of other health issues, so it is hard to attribute feeling worse to the FM alone.

      I’ve had a reduction in stress level since I’m not working, and I feel so much better.

      It is definitely worsening! I was diagnosed 26 years ago.
