Thank you again those who commented etc. previously when I was feeling icky and
sorry for myself this week.
I think I am on the mend some but should clarify.
Yes, I have Fibromayalgia or at least that is their diagnosis. I had 16 out of the 18 possible pain points when diagnosed, Ouch! I actually believe I have
Polymyalgia which has some variations which I have which do not usually occur with Fibromyalgia sufferers.
But they say they do not recognize that in people under 50, but they could be wrong.
I also have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Anemia of Chronic disease , Hypothyroidism and Rosacea. And throw in a bad C5-6 in my neck to boot!
Many of those things make me tired for one, so I say my middle name is "Tiredelda"! HA
I was first diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome in 1990 but was not
treated for it very well ( but it was such a new illness).
By 1993 I was getting more and more physical and cognitive symptoms etc. but again was misdiagnosed partly because I was abused when a child, so they kept telling me it was that and to get more counseling. They were missing the big picture!
By 1994-95 when we moved to this side of the state I was almost bed ridden 5-6 days a week it had gotten so bad.
I finally found a doctor who diagnosed me right in 1997 , also got diagnosed right for the thyroid disease which I had been having symptoms of for about 20 years and they never diagnosed correctly either. So what did that do to me all those years?
Not to mention growing up downwind from a nuclear plant for most of my life!
Anyway, I usually keep a good attitude but being human once in a while it gets to me.
I know it can always be something worse and it is not but it can be pretty damn difficult when it wants to be.
Many, sometimes even family members or friends do not understand, as you look fluffy aka plump and healthy , so it is hard for them to tell or appreciate the inner pain etc. you are going through.
To my fellow blogland friends who also suffer, I pray for you as well and thank you for your support.
We are all in this fight for the good fight, so take care of yourselves!
I do many natural things that have helped me a great deal but they are not a cure, just helpers, when it flares it does what it wants.
But here is to better days ahead and one day a magic pill or cure!!!
