Finally Facing Fibromyalgia

I am Finally Facing Fibromyalgia
It has been 10 years now and nothing has changed except that I am finally facing the diagnosis of the dreaded Fibromyalgia.

Facing it as in accepting it. This has taken me a long time. 

All my symptoms fit.

These are the main symptoms of Fibromyalgia:

symptoms of Fibromyalgia

I don't have headaches or irritable bowel syndrome or painful menstrual periods but I have all the other symptoms listed plus some.

I cannot ignore it any more.

So I wonder what will be different in my day to day life ??

How will I explain Fibromyalgia to my family and friends?

What will I try to help my symptoms?

What will actually work to reduce my symptoms?

  1. Is it just the name of one set of your symptoms or a real diagnosis? i mean does fibromyalgia cover all your symptoms?

    1. Fibromyalgia (FMS) is a real diagnosis. a diagnosis is made based on two criteria established by the American College of Rheumatology (ACR): a history of widespread pain lasting more than 3 months and the presence of tender points.
