What Fibro has done to me…

 

There are many lists of symptoms tied to Fibromyalgia, and every list seems to be a little different.  Fibromyalgia is complicated and unknown even to the people that have had it for years.   You never know whether your symptoms are from your Fibro or from some other ailment.  For so many people this “disorder” has disrupted their lives and killed their morale.  Every person’s story is so different, yet so much alike at the same time.  I know that doesn’t seem to make sense but if you have fibromyalgia you will know what I mean by that!!!!  Every person has different symptoms and their flares are different every time, but their journey, the one that brought them to where they are now... is similar in so many ways.  I am here to tell my story… the story of how I came to be diagnost with this “disorder”.  

 

My journey began over 8 long years ago…  At the beginning I felt crazy because all of my tests would come back normal and it seemed like everyone around me just thought that it was all in my head, in fact even now I feel that way because people just don’t seem to understand how I truely hurt.  I put a smile on for everyone else and they seem to forget that I am still in pain, but I can’t tell them every moment that I am in pain, because the pain is constant.  People think that everything is in my head because how can a person hurt non stop like I do!?!  Then there are the doctors, one after another for years each and every one of them doing the same tests…  proving nothing.  I got sick of hearing that nothing was wrong with me when I knew how I felt, so I just stopped going to the doctor.  I then just adapted my life around the pain and did my best not to complain about how I felt.  Its kind of funny how I could give up doing so many different things without anyone ever noticing or even asking why.  For instance, I no longer peel potatoes, wierd sounding I know but the pain in my hands was horrible so now I either mash them with skins or don’t make mashed potatoes… yet no one noticed that I totally changed how I cooked.  I can’t stand for long periods of time (at all) so when I shop I make sure I can sit down from time to time, I guess people just assumed that I was lazy, but really it hurt too much to stand!!!  When I say long periods of time I mean like 5 min’s at a time without discomfort, I can’t even stand to brush my teeth without my legs hurting!!!  People would comment on how I would stand like a flamingo while doing things like the dishes and what not but I would do it just to relieve some of my pain on my legs.  I even drive funny... I have to have my leg propped up on the left side so that it doesn't ache so bad, if I can put the cruise on I am golden... because it hurts to push the gas pedal.  So many little things that people take for granted!!!!  

 

All of this went on for many years and then one day I woke up with this horrible pain everywhere, this pain was worse then I was use to and nothing took it away.  The pain seemed to get worse every day and finally I just caved and made an appointment to see the doctor, because frankly I couldn't bare the pain any longer.  When I got to the doctors office and I sat there waiting for him to come in I was scared of what he might tell me, not scared of what might be wrong, but scared that he would say nothing was wrong.  I know most people would hope there was nothing wrong, but me... I wanted an answer to why I was in so much pain!!!  Once he got in the room he sat there quietly reading my file and all I could think was that he probably thinks I'm nuts and just want pain meds or something.  I swear I almost had a panic attack sitting there while he read through my file!!!  Then he finally spoke... he started asking me questions and it was like he was in my head... he knew exactly what I was feeling... FINALLY a doctor that didn't act like I was crazy!!!!  After finishing his exam he told me that he is pretty sure that I had fibromyalgia and that he wanted me to go see the rhuemotoligist to verify it, but he was going to treat me for it until then.  Finally a name to this pain... I know it is pretty messed up that I was happy to hear that I have a life long 'disorder' that pain meds don't even seem to touch, but you know what??? Atleast I 'm not crazy... what I felt for 8 LONG years was real!!!!!!  Don't get me wrong I wish that I didn't have this, I wish that I could just lead a normal life, but I can't and I am the one that has to deal with that! 

 

No one knows how I feel unless of course they too have this!!!!  People try to understand but it is usually forgotten about over time.  See... at first people are sympathetic and want to help but they don't understand that this is an every day thing for me.  It is hard to explain to someone (that doesn't have this) that it hurts too much to do something, because on the outside I look fine, I don't hobble, nor do I look disfigured or injured, so I should be fine.   That is not the case.... every day is painful and if I do the things I know are outsie of my limits I pay for it for days, maybe even weeks later.  If I over do things it brings on a flare, after the fact, and disables me in pain.  I still have to work every day and take care of a house hold of people, yet fibromyalgia never takes a back seat... that is what people never seem to understand!!!!  Something as simple as caring a laundry basket downstairs can make my arms ache for days... yet I still try to do as much as possible because I get sick of asking people to help me!!!  I was always a very independant person and never liked to ask for help doing anything, but this disorder has changed me... I am no longer independant... fibromyalgia took that from me!!!!! 

 

When I finally got a name for my pain I thought I would be able to fix it... boy was I wrong!!!!   Getting a name for my disorder was only one painful step twords many more painful steps to follow!!!  I just hope that some day they find some type a reason for this disorder so that they are better able to treat it!!!!


Wishing everyone a pain free day, ((((hugs))))

I am only in the beginning stages of trying to figure out what is going on with my body.  No answers yet. So much of what you said is how I feel every single day. I know I am not crazy and it's not in my head - if I could only convince the others around me of that.  Thanks for your post - it made me feel better and I know I am not alone even if it's not fibro the pain is real.  smilewinkgrin

If I helped just one person feel like they weren't alone then I am happy... thank you for the response.  I just needed to vent I guess, just let it ALL out!!!  It has been a long HARD road and I know that I have an even harder road ahead of me.  I hope that what you are feeling is NOT Fibro, but I hope that you DO find a reason!!! {{{HUGS}}}

Your story is all too familiar.  It is good to let it all out.  You are not alone and we will help.
 
By the way, when I carry my laundry basket, I put it on my head!  If I carry it the normal way, it puts stress on the arms, shoulders and back.  This works for me!

What a well written essay.I wonder if you would consider submitting it for publication? Your outlook is honest and positive. I hope everyone on this board reads what you have written.

Thank you,

Hi Rachel...
 
I have found that one of the most distressing things about this condition is the lack of knowledge that the average person has about how dibiliating it can become.  I have heard things like "My legs hurt too but I'm going to the mall anyway.  Why don't you just rub some icy hot on your knees?  If you worked those muscles more they wouldn't hurt so much.  Take two aspirin and call me in the morning..."  You know what  I mean.  I have decided not to even talk to friends about fibro that 'don't get it'.  I have made some pretty lame excuses to exclude myself from activities that I know I might be able to get through, but will pay dearly for the next day.  The most recent, some friends of ours have a huge  piece of property on the river and they have campfires, even in the snow.  It involves parking in their driveway, then walking down a steep, long hill to the river...that I can do.  But I can't walk back up it when it's time to leave.  Plus the cold just about kills me, even if I'm dressed in three or four layers.  We have another set of friends that keep there house at 60 degrees and we play bridge with them quite often.  It takes me days, after sitting there freezing all evening, to recover.  When I walk in their house, my friend throws me a blanket then announces to everyone in the room..."Donna is always cold...she needs to put some more meat on those bones!"
 
I'm not going to say  "I have fibro, you morons....I'd like to...but I'm just not 'going there' anymore.
 
My husband understands it and so does my family.  If I'm in a flare...which I am at the moment...I just have learned to say 'No' without any explanation.  I guess it's just easier to have people think I am a recluse than going into the condition and explaining the pain.
 
Those Lyrica commercials slay me...we have said that before on the forum.  Neither one of the actresses they use begin to look like they are suffering from Fibro.  They should back over them with a jeep, set them on fire...then shoot the commerical.  THAT is more like it, instead of that woman rubbing her shoulder with a frown on her face, sitting in a restaurant!
 
Hope you feel better soon.
 
hugs
donna

Rachel, I, indeed, did read it.  It could be my story, like you said we all have the same story but different.  I was really happy to find out what I had but I was also in shock.  Looking back I was really out of it for a few days trying to get a handle on it in my head.  I had always controlled, or tried to control, everything about my illness but when I found out it had a name & was a real thing I think I lost it for awhile, went into mourning big time.   Nice to meet you, I am new here so I don't think we have talked before.  Hope you have a warm & painfree day.  Hugs, Denise

Thank you all for your input on what I had to say.  As for publication... thank you for the kind words, but I doubt it is good enough for all that!!!! : )  Just my story in a nut shell really... that and so many others!!! I wrote this thinking I would give it to my fiancee to help him better understand what I have gone through before he & I met and what led up to my diagnosis, but figured it was better to be put on here where others "like me" could read it.  I just feel that no matter how much I tell someone about fibromyalgia... they will never truely know what I feel like, I have learned to deal with that fact.  I just write now instead of trying to explain to others... kind of like a journal I guess, I just write my feelings and thoughts and then I feel better in the end. 
 
Denise,
I am also new to this board, so nice to meet you as well : ) I went through the same thing you did... it is kind of like the "fog" that we talk about.  When I look back on it, it's like I wasn't even there, hard to explain, but I'm sure you understand!!!
 
Donna,
I TOTALLY know what you mean.. there are so many times I just wanted to yell out... HELLO???  Do you not realize I FIBROMYALGIA!!!!  Then all those times that people just take it for granted that they can do the day to day things...  I just wish they TRUELY knew how hard it if for me sometimes... both emotionally & physically!!!  Do they not realize that I WANT to do those things???  I think thats why I have the anxioty and depression... Fibro can do that ya know!?!?!  I have actually been told "you can't use fibromyalgia as an excuse for everything, ya know???"  Are you kidding me???

Thank you for sharing with us. It's so hard to explain to others what it's like to hurt all the time. Even myself, I tell myself if I wasn't so lazy, then I could get some things done. If I'm that hard on myself, how can I expect others to understand? This came at a good time for me.

Oh, and welcome to the board!

I read your story and yes it's all to familiar!  I decided today, before I read this, that I'm not going to hide the fact that I have Fibro anymore.  Maybe the reason people don't know much about it is because we stop talking about it.  This condition has been around forever and so many people have it and yet no-one knows anything about it.  That is just not right! Today I put my purple fibro ribbon up in my office.  I'm waiting for someone to ask me about it.  My answer will be short and simple "I have fibromyalgia".  If they ask me what it is, I'm simply going to tell them to do some research.  I'm not going to complain or explain myself to them, I'm tired of hiding from people because I'm afraid of what they will think.  This is a real disorder and I'm not going to give into the ignorance of other people.  We have real pain, real fatigue, and so many other problem but most of all we have real feelings and it hurts when other mock us.  As you can tell, I haven't had the best day!  I'm angry, disappointed, and frustrated.  I'm not sure what put me in this mood but I don't think it is necessarily a bad thing.  I've decided to stand up for myself!
 
Welcome to our new members; sorry to greet you with such a negative post.  I wish everyone a pain free and restful night!

Meggie,
 
Hello... and thank you!!!  idea That is a WONDERFUL idea, I too will get a purple ribbon to hang in my office, you should post something so that others do the same!!!  Maybe we should pick a day to wear OUR ribbons!!!  Like A fibro day or month... they have breast cancer month why not Fibro month too!!!!  I always wondered how to get people to look into the disorder and that sounds like a good way!!!!  Curiousity kills the cat...  people won't be able to go without looking it up that way, they will WANT to know about it!!!!  I am sorry to hear that you had a bad day... I had a bad day yesterday too!!! shakehead    I sure hope today is a better day for all of us!!!!  We had a HUGE snow storm lastnight and should stay through tonight... so I will be happy once I am back home and under a warm blanket!!!!  Take care!!!


Wishing everyone a pain free day, ((((hugs))))

I have said this before on here- I am thankful (???) that the fibro hit me hard late last winter because once the tests all came back normal and the HORRIBLE pain hit, they were able to diagnose me quickly- I cannot imagine going through 8 years of "not" knowing. 

I don't think there is a person on here that does not relate to your story in one way or another! Vent all you want- we understand!!!!

GamJill,
 
I 'm glad to hear that you were diagnost a lot easier then I... Back in the beginning I too had a horrible flare, that is what made me go in the first place, the doctors just wouldn't listen to me.  I don't necessarily blame the doctors, they need to watch themselves too... there are a lot of drug addicts out there that just complain to get med's so... I understand how hard it must be for them to diagnose something like this!!!!  I am just glad that Ifound a doctor that knew enough to see me for what I was... IN PAIN!!! I am glad I found this forum, it helps SO MUCH to talk to others like me!!!  SO... many people with similar stories, how can we ALL be crazy right??? LOL  smilewinkgrin

Rachel that was very well written. Your so very right about the things we can no longer do that no one else seems to notice that we don't do anymore. My hands feel like they have been smashed between bricks with the arthritis and fibro, the only way anyone would understand what that feels like is for me to smash their hands with bricks. devil While trying to make a few treats for my family I found what a cruel place my kitchen is anymore because of my hands. I was so happy my DH came home as I was getting ready to make rice krispy treats cause I wasn't sure how I was going to get them stirred together and put in a pan. We are talking about the simplest thing there is to make.

Rach,

You have a very good idea!  I will have to put some thought into this before I submit something though. 

I'm still not feeling the best but we are in the middle of a snow storm and I don't handle weather changes very well. Luckily for me, it is very quiet here at work.  I'm thinking about sneaking over to our couch and taking a short rest, boy that sounds good turn .

I hope everyone has a good day!

Rach, I can completely relate to your story.  Mine started a couple of years ago.  I, too, do not peel potatoes.  My family complains.  Stirring batter is nearly impossible here too, Marlee. 

My  husband who understands let me lean on the cart yesterday while we were shopping. By the end I could barely shuffle.  At the checkout he decides he wants the cart at tne other end of the counter and he just yanks it away and I nearly fell over.  I said, "hey," and he looked me in the eye right in front of the clerk and said, "Chill" mad    Rather than be humiliated, I made a joke out of it and the clerk seemed to not realize.  

Later at the bookstore I am standing in line for coffee and he is on the phone to his mom wandering all over the store (when I could have been sitting down and he could have been in line).  I tried leaning on the display case, but that did not help, so I snuck my cane out of my purse and leaned on that and used it to go out to the car and go to the next store.

Then in the car after the store, I took my shoes off and rubbed my feet and when I got home, I changed shoes and was fine again.  Who on the outside of our bodies can make sense of that?  Now you hobble now you don't. 

I am so glad you shared, Rach.  Your story was not long at all because it was interesting. 

Oh everyone, I got some long underwear at Target.  It is silky and light and awesome.  Our pge bill was >$700 two months last winter and we are trying to avoid that so we have been keeping the heater down low.  The underwear is a Godsend.

Best,

Sue
