Living with Fibro sucks! For the past two months I have had this right upper back pain and front pain in the same spot and blood tests have come back negative for anything but that still leaves questions unanswered to what is going on? Time after time I get sick of doctors rolling their eyes at me and thinking it is all in my head! Ya being in pain and being tired is all in my head and I love taking the time to go see the doctor because I have nothing better to do! Ya okay!
Two years ago I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. There is also a question of Psoriatic Arthritis as well. When I was refered to the Rheumotolgist he had me start a cancer drug called “Methotrexate” which is supposed to help if it was indeed the arthritis. Anyone that knows me, knows I won’t even take Tylenol for a headache so needless to say the severe side effects of the medicine I was experiencing made me end it real quick.
For the past few years my tiredness/fatigue and pain have only gotten worse. =( There used to be a time that everyday I could complete all my housework, clean the yard, clean my vehicle and then turn around and shovel the whole dang driveway! I really miss that energy I had. It gets very frustrating when I wake in the morning and have to drag my butt out of bed and fake it to make it. By the time noon hits I am ready for a nap which of course can’t happen around here. =(
Lately I have wondered if my weight is contributing to my fatigue alongside the Fibro. I am at the heaviest I have ever been and I would imagine carrying around all this weight would be tiring for anyone! I have really got to lose some weight and see if that would help with my fatigue. I know it will definitely help a lot of things.
I have always thought that Fibro was a diagnosis that they just gave anybody that they couldn’t figure out. I kind of still feel the same way even though I know I have something going on that they can’t figure out. Apparently Fibromyalgia is real, very real and a lot of people are suffering every day.
