I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in November of 2007....I always knew there was something wrong but couldn't ever really put my finger on it until that day when I went into his office and he touched all 18 points and told me I had it and I cried because I finally knew what was wrong and I was very saddened because I knew what was to come. I cycled 30 to 40 miles a day with friends and knew this would come to an abrupt halt. My whole life was about to change but I didn't realize how much!!!!! For the next three years I spent endless hours researching, trial and error with my medication and my Doctor, creating an exercise plan that worked for my body, and I have prevailed. I would never wish this on my worst enemy. I pray to God each day that I have an okay day and hope something good will happen to me...... I moved 1000 miles away to get away from the weather elements that was putting such a strain on my body and took another job. Each individual will have to access their own body and how they will have to accommodate their body. If you do not take of your body with this Fibro it will take you over and you will be miserable the rest of your life. Believe me, I know, I have lived it breathe it and faced it......No picnic in my book!!!! You must do what is right for you! Remember don't let your Doctor have all the say in your health care planning, take an active approach and be involved, because who better than you knows your body! I am much wiser to the wear. I know my limitations and take care of myself the best that I can.
