I have no motivation or energy to go to physical therapy like I SHOULD no energy or motivation to leave the house. I'm thinking of scheduling a second appt with my rheumatologist to get some more information or something !!! has anyone else went thru this when they were first diagnosed with fibromyalgia or anything ?! ๐Ÿ˜ž

      Hi , yes I went thew the same. I was a childminder and when kid went home at 5 I was in bed ๐Ÿ›Œ I could not stay awake. I had no energy at all and the pain was horrible. It's hard get your head around the illness at the start, but don't ษ“e afraid to rest when u need too. I had to give up work as I just couldn't do anymore. I also suffer osteoarthritis and it didn't help me either. But it does get easier to cope with you still have the pain but find something that u enjoy doing and it will keep u motivated.
