I said, possibly 3 posts ago that I would describe how Fibromyalgia is for me, or at least how the whole collection of things that I suffer from, is for me. I would like to, so that if someone will comment with their symptoms, then maybe it will help some of us or those of us that don’t know what we’re feeling, not feel so alone or like a freak!
Obviously I know that I’m feeling pain but is it Fibromyalgia or did I knock myself without remembering? Is it my back condition or could it be the vitamin d deficiency? But then the biggest problem that most of us face is that we all have different symptoms. It’s hard to have a condition that when put next to someone else with the same problem, lifestyles and abilities vary greatly.
