I hate fibromyalgia

As I look through the Internet comments, complaints, pain and intense suffering from the symptoms of fibromyalgia, I feel so much compassion and love for these human beings. I have compiled some comments below…

Letter to the evil disease: I HATE you fibromyalgia! For so many years I have tried to

coexist with you, treat you nicely, work around you. I have gone bankrupt treating you with massages, acupuncture, chiropractic care, water therapy, diet changes, just so you would calm down. Now I suffer all of the side effects of the pharmaceutical meds I take to put up with you! And every year that goes by you just get worse! And I hate all that comes with you! Isolation, depression, IBS, all of it! And to know that I will not be gone with you until the day I die is horrid!  by JS

It is helpful to help people who do not understand what I am going through ! Helps me understand I am not alone ! It affects my ability to function everyday ! I cry a lot because of not being able to do my own housework, take care of my family, doing the simple things in life can bring unbearable pain ! I have to miss a lot of church which is depressing ! I have other illnesses that cause more pain ! I feel so useless sometimes ! Without Jesus I do not know what I would do ! Pray for those that have fibromyalgia, know one knows the pain and suffering except you and God !!! by JCC

fibromyalgia brain-fog
Fibromyalgia brain-fog. I can’ get up.

Waking up is one thing, if one is fortunate to get to sleep and stay sleep for Amy length of time…going to sleep, washing up and still struggle to get OUT the bed is a whole different monster…. lately it takes me at least an hour to get out the bed.

I’ve been inside all day, decided to take a quick shower and get back in my gown, was sitting at the table prior to the shower, afterwards, searched high and low and was about to go to my car to see if my glasses were in the car, I don’t know who put them on the table where I had been sitting….. .daggone fibro fog — from online Fibromyalgia Group

“Tired of pressing through the painful smile, the excruciating pain in my knees, finders and toes, so the hurricane need to go on and die out” There are no real words to describe he terrible unyielding pain… https://www.facebook.com/pages/Online-Fibromyalgia-Support-Group/147126108688355

I have fibromyalgia; my symptoms are a flu-like infection that don’t ever go away. I am constantly exhausted and I can’t think and the right words are lost in my fibro brain fog. I have fibromyalgia; I can’t  sleep, I’m soo bone tired,  and  I wake up stiff and achy. I have fibro symptoms causing debilitating pain in so many places on my body.Fibro ribbon I just need to rest 18 hours a day!

I push and push but I get nothing done. I feel as though I have to push myself to get anything done, then I crash on to the sofa for hours without getting anything done. I think I really have Lyme disease.

I don’t believe exercise helps “modestly reduce pain” you just tolerate it more since the kind of pain from exercising is just more pain on top of normal FM pain. It makes smaller pain look insignificant sometimes compared to others. from https://www.facebook.com/FibroNetwork?

Fibro Pain: You wake up feeling like you have been run over by a Mack truck. You worry that you are heading into a flare. Do you recognize when your symptoms are on the verge of worsening? What do you do to cope when you are in a flare-up?

I just don’t feel good. What can I do?

There exists a disease that is extremely common that people don’t realize they have it. It is the most incorrectly diagnosed malady and is not adequately treated because the medications that are prescribed treat only the symptoms (and they don’t do a very good job of mitigating the ill effects) without addressing the root cause of your not feeling well.

Highly contagious, this disease can be communicated by close contact among individuals or effectively transmitted by an insect bite. Once infected, the patient may demonstrate symptoms that could represent any one of over 300 different diseases while experiencing any one or more of as many symptoms.

I just feel bad what can I do for freedom from pain and suffering?Most families are already living with this aggressive bacterium in their home and it is common for house pets to be carriers of the disease.

The vast array of symptoms covers a wide spectrum; and some of them could have you – or your doctor – questioning one’s sanity. In fact, in many cases, a well-meaning physician might suggest that your symptoms are psychosomatic (imagined).

When looking for a place to settle within the body or a host this smart bug will detect and penetrate one’s weakest link. That’s why it looks so different as it infects and breaks down different living components in each person who has it.

My wife and I were diagnoses with everything from lupus to fibromyalgia and multiple sclerosis to celiac disease while stumping the most sophisticated symptom checker.

We sought out traditionally trained doctors as well as those who were natural, allopathic or specialized in neuropathy or homeopathy which made our search for a solid solution even more confusing. We were told that we displayed depression symptoms, symptoms of mono, chronic fatigue syndrome and sciatic nerve pain, while they determined that we suffered from rheumatoid arthritis, lymphoma, trigeminal neuralgia and heart disease, just to name a few.

Little did the professionals know that we both – while experiencing vastly different symptoms – had the same disease.

It is easy for intimate partners to transmit the disease as it can be communicated with as little as a kiss and you don’t necessarily get it from another person, you could be infected by a dog or a cat, or any insect; and it can even survive in the air for a short period of time, like any other airborne disease, though only traveling ten feet or so before dying.

It turns out that I was infected by a mosquito and my wife contracted it from me.
After nine years of suffering from that insect bite, battling known medical science and having jumped through so many hoops, leaving us exhausted, experiencing real pain with little hope of recovery while wondering if were weren’t crazy ourselves.

I was beginning to wonder if I had bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, anxiety disorder, mental illness or any of the other mental disorders.

If you were These are some of the symptoms below:

• Problems with normal thinking processes or stumbling over words
• Lack of concentration and or erratic mood changes
• Feeling tired, wore out, lack of stamina
• Lower back pain, knee pain, shoulder pain, heel pain or stiffness of joints or back
• Sudden sharp pains, loss of feeling, tingling sensation in extremities
• Irritable bowel or bladder, stomach pain
• Anxiety, psychological disorders or panic attacks
• Arthritis affecting the knees, legs, ankles, hips, shoulders, elbows, wrist, etc.
• Nerve pain radiating out from the spine, like a pinched nerve
• Numbness in the limbs or facial paralysis (Bell’s Palsy)

It wasn’t until we discovered that we suffered from physiological Borreliosis invasion that we started to treat this bugger that is commonly referred to as Lyme disease. You have likely heard the cries from the media touting that Lyme disease is communicated by a deer tick, but nothing could be further from the truth.

According to Leo Galland, M.D., Lyme disease is extremely stealthy and can masquerade itself as any known malady as it finds places to set up camp in organs, skin, heart, nervous system, joints and muscles, making it extremely difficult to correctly diagnose.

It never occurred to me that I might have had Lyme disease because I had never been bitten by a deer tick at any time.

Once we knew what we were dealing with, the hunt was on for a solution. We tried a great many therapies and interventions with varying degrees of success in an effort to thwart the corkscrew-shaped bacterium Borrelia burqdorferi that was determined to take us out.
Along the way I have met many people who have also struggled to battle this disease who have spent ten to twenty years and thousands of dollars in the battle.

We were so fortunate to be able to find a $25 solution to all those aches and pains.
