I am 28 years old and was recently diagnosed with fibromyalgia, on top of occipital neuralgia, mps, depression, and anxiety.
However, I have had pain since I was about 14. Was mainly just tension headaches and tmj and neck pain. I finally started to realize when I was 25 that this wasn't normal. So I did about 9 months of physical therapy with no relief. I was given a tens unit and it offered no relief. I take medication for depression and anxiety. I have done trigger point injections and occipital nerve block injections and have recently started seeing a pain psychologist. I feel my pain is getting worse. I try and do yoga, take my dog on walks, Epsom salt baths. You name it, I have probably tried it.
I quit my job. I was written up for having too many medical appointments. I don't know what else to do. Has anyone applied for disability with fibromyalgia? Is there anything you've tried that has worked for you for your fibro pain?
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
