Hello all! I have had this app. For a few days now. My main reasoning was to log my pain. I am not diagnosed. My physician basically wrote me off after the blood tests came back. I do have a slight vitamin D deficiency. Because I do not feel as though I am depressed he told me it wasn't fibro. He has since left my medical practice and now it's a start over point with the new. I thought this might help when talking with the new doctor.
I was not expecting the community page. I am pleased to have a place to talk to others.

Welcome Newbie here. I had used this pretty consistently for awhile then stopped now I am back on. I shared it with my doc and I think it angered her. I think due to the lack of progress. I see where people have had injuries which has led up to their illness. That was not my case. It has been hard for me to get a handle on why I am sick and how I got sick. I was told it would take me two years to get better and it's been well more than two years. I just want my old life back. I want to be better. I do not want to go on disability and collect a check. I want to work until retirement. It's getting harder everyday.

I believe mine started with an injury. I sprained my S.I joint. I did not go to the E.R the night I fell and I regret it now. I feel my diagnosis would have a been a little more thorough had I. I instead went to my physician the next day. He looked for bruising and had me do a few things to judge mobility. Told me to take IBROPHEN and take 3 days off. I have hurt since. I am lucky though after reading some of these posts. I can still work.

Glad you are here SpringDM. Lots of good info for you. You can search subject posts you want to know more about.
I have only been dx Fibro for about 5 months, but I have huge pain issues.
I, too had a couple accidents one as a child & another as adult that resulted in severe constant neuropathy. I am just coming out of a drop out time struggling with this pain & loss of use of a foot. Thankfully my body shifted again to the usual type of pain. I couldn't walk without a working foot. Feels like a wonderful blessing!!
I hope you make some new friends here. Welcomeđź’ś

I feel your frustration . I would like to retire and not be forced by people.

When I was diagnosed I cried and I feel into a dark place . My Doctors help me by putting a medical plan of action.
I was angry bc I suffered a tough childhood. I felt I had more then paid for my parents stupidity.

I changed my cries for strength.
I had to make a choice to give in to this illness or it had to learn to live with me!

Find your happy medium and enjoy the good days your given now let go of the past... your not going there .
