Welcome to the fibromyalgia forum. You will be so happy that you have joined. As Schutz said, check out the fibro101 thread. It is the second thread on our first page. There is a supplement called malic acid/magnesium. This might work for you. It has helped a lot of people on the forum, including myself. It helps with the pain and fatigue. I would also recommend getting your vitamin D levels checked. Vitamin D really helps a lot too. But the fibro 101 thread really has a lot of useful information on it. I think you would enjoy reading it.
Also you will find that there are so many kind and compassionate people here. People who understand what it is that you are goint through. I am sorry that the pain medications did not work for you. Sometimes that happens. But we will help you in any way we can. I think that you will enjoy it here. And believe me, it gets addicting, the forum that is.
Have a wonderful night/day depending where you are.
Gosh, you sound alot like us! Welcome aboard- I think you will like this site with all the great members and support. I have a 32 yr. old son (grown and has a young family) and a 17 yr. old son at home. Love those teenagers. I never thought I would make it through the teen years with my oldest, so when my youngest son hit his teens I asked God if we could just skip the next 7 years - the answer was no I guess! My youngest is doing well through these years and I do enjoy his company even! It turned out that he never has been the "challenge" like my oldest one was.
I'm new to the fibro - started getting symptoms last March and it was all downhill from there. Was hit quite hard. Have not returned to work since and I do miss it. I admire you for taking on the Animal Shelter with all it's hard work. I'm an animal lover too. I have a yellow lab granddog and love him like he is my own. He is 5 yrs old and just got fixed. ( I know, that's old to be getting fixed for a dog, but better late than never).
Was nice to meet you and join us on our daily check-ins when you can.
