Since I've been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia its amazing how many people seem to be experts on the very subject! I avoid telling people about my diagnosis because of this exact reason but at some points it becomes unavoidable. As I said in a previous post my hip and leg pain has affected my walking. So I get asked alot of quesions... I'm hearing ALL the theories now. Such as how I must not be eating right or not exercising enough. I've also been told that Fibromyalgia is something doctors make up when they dont know whats wrong. Because of the pain in my hip joints I resorted to a cane to get around, particularly when i will be doing alot of walking. Ive had someone close to me laugh and say "you don't need that!"...Another person told me that I'm just having a reaction to mold... You name it, I'm hearing it! I am so frustrated and feel like Im about to lose it!! Anyone else experience this? Tips on how to handle!!!?
