There’s always one clever friend who starts a conversation with…
‘You know, I think I had fibromyalgia years ago. I was sick for months with pain as a child……but now I’m fine’.
I get exasperated when I hear someone say something like this; I want to say to them,
‘Noooooooo, You cannot be serious’,
in my best impression of John McEnroe!
But I just remain calm and agree with them
‘O, yes you are probably right’,
thinking to myself, why did I agree when I know there completely wrong? I now realise they’re not as clever as they think they are!
Fibromyalgia is an illness with NO CURE, it’s not possible that you had it ‘years ago and are now cured’.
The best doctors in the world have not found a cure for fibromyalgia yet. Look it up on google as, ‘fibromyalgia cure’, it will say there’s no cure.
For anyone who is confused and does not know anything about fibromyalgia, I will run through the main symptoms.
The main symptoms are:
Pain throughout the whole body
Joints and muscles feel stiff
Quality of sleep can be poor
Feeling tired and fatigued
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
Cognitive problems, feeling confused, or dazed, sometimes called Fibro fog
Painful periods in women
The symptoms can vary from person to person.
Symptoms can get better or worse from time to time.
Factors that influence this are:
- the amount of stress you are experiencing
- how much daily exercise you have
- and changes in climate and temperature
If you think you may be suffering from fibromyalgia, consult your doctor or health professional.
Going back to the fact there’s no cure.
I’ve lived with fibromyalgia for 14 years and found some times are really tough. I have been able to boost my general health through diet, exercise and meditation.
The positives are my symptoms are still there, but have improved greatly since I was first diagnosed.
