Fibromyalgia & weight gain

While weight gain, or the inability to lose weight, is not painful it is such a frustrating symptom in an already over flowing list of symptoms that make up Fibro. 

I personally struggle with this and have been searching for helpful information. These are some of the sites with interesting information about fibromyalgia and weight gain and their solution to this frustrating problem. I hope you find something that helps you.

    I find this the least able to control part of my fibro and will read your suggestions with interest. keep us updated on any successes you have losing weight, PLEASE

  2. Due to lack of mobility I gained weight and then was diagnosed as a type 2 diabetic. I hate Fibro for that. The Fibro I can just about deal with but the no carbing for the diabetes is soul destroying and bloody miserable. :0( xx
