So I have a doctors appointment coming up. I have been in pain for three years. I believe I have fibromyalgia but am not positive. I experienced pain a lot. You can not touch my back with out it being super painful. I have not had anything that would have caused inflammation such as being in a car wreck or falling. It just all of the sudden appeared three years ago. But the thing I am worried about is that I don't have pain every day I can go two or three days with out any pain. And then I can have pain everyday for three months straight. I am just really confused because people that I have talked to never get relief so is it not fibromyalgia and is it just in my head? what do you guys think?

I just had pain one day. I have fibro. When it first started I didn't have pain every day. You could have fibro. Good luck with the doctor.

Or you have grown so used to the lower pain that you truly don't realize it's there..

This is all true as my experience with fibro. I used to have more good days. I think I'm in a blue funk too. I have so much I could say but just no energy to type it. Just know I'm right there with you for support. Sending love & (((hugs))) too.

Tamtoad, it's ok, there's a lot of that going around these days. I've been dealing with that myself. Being in a funk really does drain you along with the pain. Hang in there. Sending healing {{{Hugs}}} your way.🤗💕

Here's hoping you have a kind, knowledgeable doc who believes you and years you well. ☺ Best wishes

Abbycakes, I was working 8-10 hr days in 2007, when my fibro symptoms started. I'd go home in no pain or mild pain some days and severe in others. I chalked it up to just work. I had no idea it was fibro for 2 years, then my doc suggested it might be and finally diagnosed it in 2012. After 5 years with support from good docs, this community's support and suggestions, I've found ways of dealing with and even reducing some of my pain. But I'm never pain free. I have a lot of coexisting & chronic pain diagnoses, like sjogrens, DDD, OA. When one thing calms down another flares. If I hadn't found this community, which I now think of as dear friends, a family in its own accord, I'm not sure I'd be doing as well. Give yourself time to find what is wrong & what works for you. If a doctor isn't helping out seems closed minded, find a new doctor. Pain specialists are very helpful for most of us, and mine has even diagnosed issues other doctors have missed. We are all different, yet alike. And we all understand. It's not in your head, it's real! Hugs love & prayers! 🙂💕🙏🌸

For sure, Abbycakes, what Flappsy said!!⤴️⤴️

Mine started suddenly too, back in 2012. I had days with no pain back then... not anymore! For your sake I hope you don't have fibro, it sucks the life out of You! Maybe it's a muscle issue (although it sounds like fibro). I wish you luck!
