This app looks promising. I hope I will learn a lot and I hope I can share some of my learnings.

I've been diagnosed with fibromyalgia a couple of months ago. My biggest problem is that I have difficulties falling asleep because of the pain.

I am currently trying various stretching exercises. It is relaxing and helped me reduce my pain from a 6 to a 4.

Hi and welcome to our growing family. Spend a little time looking at some posts there is alot of tips here. We are all dealing with an array of chronic issues. Many if not most of us have multiple issues that seem to overlap in symptoms. We talk about everything from relationship issues, pharmaceutical help, natural herbs and supplements, diets, doctors good and bad. Different procedures we have been through. Sometimes we just need to vent. Welcome.

Welcome to our community Nathan80! As LMB said we share our passion of various types, laugh, cry and vent. I've found wonderful support here. Up until last year I was feeling so alone, then I found this community. I have a wonderful hubby but even as supporting as he is, sometimes he either forgets or if insensitive for whatever reason. But I also don't tell him or most of my family how really bad days are. This community is filled with great suggestions. I also have fibro, and just in the past 1-2 weeks started some websites. I can't remember right now. But just search fibromyalgia and read the most recent posts to find those links. They're so helpful. Good luck & I'll add you to my prayer list! 🙏🌼

Welcome Nathan80 I think you will find a diverse group of people who have symptoms that overlap. I stumbled across this community by accident, I belive God led me to this group of wonderful compassionate people. We don't judge each other we try to be as supportive as we can and if you need answers to something there is probably someone here that has it or gone thru it here. I have Fibromyalgia and several other diseases that I won't mention now. Will be praying for you.

Nathan and Lorenzo, welcome to our community family... I hope that you find the support and information that you need by coming here. For me it has been a Godsend and it does my heart good to know I am never alone and that the people here really understand what i am going through because they live it themselves. I hope that we can help you when you need it. There are many kind and compassionate people here and I am always here to lend a hand when I can.

Welcome to the group. My name is Leslie and I also have fibro. Have you talked to your doctor about a sleep medicine? I'm on two right now.

Welcome Nathan and also sorry that you had to join us ; ( My one saving grace is a muscle relaxant Alzam at night - if I don't take it I toss and turn and cannot get to sleep. Also take SlowMag at night for the restless legs and cramps in legs. Unfortunately its a trial and error thing as to what helps, each one of us is different. Best of luck and gentle hugs.

Nathan, first I would like to welcome you to our family community. You have certainly come to the right place.
I'm sorry that you have been diagnosed with the nuiscance of Fibro. I have that and DJD, DDD, migraines, scoliosis, long thoracic nerve palsy, cervical spondalytic myelopathy and about a dozen other pain causing issues. It is very difficult to fall asleep and/or stay asleep when you are in pain. I try music, gentle stretching and breathing exercises. It doesn't always work but I try just the same. I hope that you find the information and support you need being here with us. Never be afraid to ask questions, vent or complain about a bad day. This is a no judgement zone. I have found this group to be a Godsend. I hope it is just as helpful for you. I wish you all the best. 🌻🙏🏻
