Hey guys, I'm seeing a lot of fibro posts but is anyone a kid, teen or young adult struggling JFM? Just wondering.

RecentlyFibroFighter, Welcome to a community of all ages of chronic pain sufferers! There are many teens in the community. However not everyone posts as often as some like me (I'm 58). I can't even imagine what it's like to be your age with fibro, or any chronic pain illness, as I was pretty healthy until around 29-31. Each of us are different so not every tip or trick or treatment works for everyone. I can only give you advice I've found to be important for my own fibro & many other chronic pain issues I deal with daily: pace your activities with rest periods in between, learn to identify your limits/tolerance (before pain is over the edge), learn to identify triggers, do gentle stretches & movements throughout your day to prevent fibro muscle stiffness, eat a healthy diet to reduce inflammation in your body, and learn to speak up for yourself & say no...it's ok. Take it one day at a time, one step at a time. (I'm awake now due to pain flare because I didnt stop & rest between doing things to get my house ready for my hip replacement surgery in a few weeks...did too much & pushed beyond my limits.) Hugs love & prayers as you learn how to cope best for you!🙂💞❤🙏🌷
