Default fibro

Hi. I'm new here too. I've had fibro for 17 years. I find I can lose a bit of weight but give up as soon as my fibro flares just feeling like what's the use or I'll do better tomorrow. I started gaining weight 25 years ago when we found out our daughter had autism. I got into the habit of using food to make myself feel better and now I am here with 110 extra pounds. I also found if I am hurting eating a LOT of sweets helps the pain a bit. Of course long term it hurts more to carry the weight. I now seem to use food for any discomfort. I would be glad to hear about others experience with dealing with fibro.

I'm new here too. Was diagnosed with Narcolepsy about 13 years ago and Fibro about 10 years ago. I'm not on any meds for the Fibro as they ma interfere with my Narcolepsy meds so I'm basically winging it and learning what I can and cannot get away with re exercise. I usually find that of I have a good day and decide to spend the day getting jobs done and gardening that I'll be laid up for a couple of days after. However I have also learned that my Narcolepsy meds give me mental alertness and the need to do more things which is great usually but not when my body literally cannot do it lol.

Hi
I have fibromyalgia, insulin resistance , pcos from last 5/6 years.On top of it suffer from small fibre neuropathy in legs and fatty liver issue.i can totally understand how difficult it gets when flare up happens.
I always had difficulty in loosing wt , but frm last six mnths the scales have refused to budge.Started 5.2 dietfrom nov , and goin to gymnasium for 2 days a week. No wt loss, but my energy levels have gone up a lot with 5.2.have increased my protein in take and reducing carbs in the diet.How much I wish I could see some results.
And this wet winters r killing me..
Take care everybody.....and let me know wat is working for you.....

Hey I have a question. When u have flare ups do u feel swollen. Especially in hands. I had a really stressful weekend and really tiring, today hands feel like balloons and hurt everywhere. I know it is a flare up but it sucks. And scale says back up .6 so I was sad. I'm sure it is weight gain from water/swelling. Even though I drown myself in water every dY 2-3 liters a day. I feel like crap.
I'm sorry just complaining.
I have fibro, hypothyroid, anxiety,and depression. U know all the stuff that tends to go with fibro. I think I have the whole list but 2 cause I don't have periods anymore.. And I mean the long list of fibro symptoms/co diseases.
Anyway new to this one so wanted to give some background

Just found this thread, I too have FM diagnosed for 4 years. Hopefully you will be back MemeToo, as you haven't left us your Facebook name...
I don't take pharmaceuticals for my fibro (my choice & my MD's choice too) but I do take supplements that help. I also have gone gluten free (very seriously like a celiac does) and it has totally cleared up my IBS.
I am off to the chiropractor this morning as I find he helps a lot with my pain - I go for a realignment & tune up lol every 6 weeks or so.
I will check back later on this thread to see if anyone else is back on it... I know some days you just don't want to bother with anything, even being on the computer can be too much for your hands and neck.
Hope to connect with other gals soon. You are welcome to read my profile for more info on me & fibro. It's short I promise.

Liana

Hi Liana, this thread used to have quite a few people on it. I participated for years but kind-of dropped out a couple of years ago. Most of the people have about stopped, it seems. I've been posting in here for almost 14 years but the last year or so no one much has been here when I would come back to read the posts so I stopped, too. I keep up with one or two on face book.

I have Rheumatoid and Osteoarthritis & Fibro as well as various other aliments like anemia, tinnitus, neuropathy and glaucoma. I manage on as few meds as I can get by with including 2 big ones: Methotrexate & Enbrel.
Like everyone else, I have my good days and my bad days.
I worked with all this mess, raised 2 kids, 4 grandkids and ran the house for years but I'm retired now so can kind-of call the shots if I want to stay in bed a little longer or get up and try to act nice.

Hope some of you guys DO get back in here soon!!! I miss talking to you.
