I have been up since about 5AM with a heating pad on my hip and shoulder.  Couldn't sleep from the pain and got in the recliner.  At 8:00 AM there was a knock at the door and I couldn't imagine who it could be so early in the morning.  I looked out and didn't recognize the person and debated on whether I would answer it at all, but he saw me so I opened the storm door a crack.
 
"Hi! he says, "I hope I didn't wake you up and am sorry if I did, but I wonder if I could ask the UPS man to leave a package with you because we have missed him two days in a row.  It's my daughter's prom dress."
 
I just stood there staring at him!  He finally said.."I live across the street(pointed to the house)...I'm your neighbor?  I drive a jeep and I wave all the time...I showed you my fireplace last summer..."  he kept going on and on and there I was, my hair standing on end like Billy Idol, in my pj's and a big smudge of chocolate on my cheek(noticed that after he left) just trying to figure out if I REALLY knew him.
 
I finally said..."Jeez, I thought I knew everyone who lived in that house".  He apologized again for disturbing me and I know he thought I had Alzheimers...which NOW is making me wonder.
 
Then I said..."What's your name?"
 
"Tim!" he laughed.  "I just got a hair cut so maybe that's why you don't recognize me."
 
I apologized because then it all registered but as God as my witness I did not recognize his face.  I don't know how far I can take the fibro-fog-thing....and blame it on things like this.  It's not like I see this guy everyday or even close up...just that one time when he showed me the new fireplace in his house.  We've talked in the road a few times and the Hubby talks to him all the time.
 
I am soooo embarassed and I can only imagine what he is telling his wife about me.  I have never been good with faces or names but this event is really scaring me.
 
All I can say is, I hope it's The Fog, that he woke me up and I was disoriented.  Too scary to think about the alternative!

Wow, Donna, that does sound scary! First, just the experience of having a stranger knock on your door first thing in the morning. Second, not recognizing his face when you have spoken with him before!

Fibrofog is awful, truly one of the most frustrating aspects of this disorder. I'm sorry this happened to you.

oh my goodness, donna! i am sorry to laugh, but i have to admit i did. i went through something very similar in the grocery store a few weeks ago. i was shopping with my youngest son and this woman walks up to us with this big smile and says "guys!!!! how are you doing?? my daughter misses you guys at the daycare! how's z (my other son) doing? is he liking 1st grade? how's your husband?" and on and on...talking to us like we were just all buddy buddy and she knew my kids names and knew me and my husband and details about our lives, so obviously she knows us, but i had no idea who she was!!! i didn't recognize her face. i didn't recognize her name. i didn't recognize her daughter, but apparently she took her daughter to the daycare that my kids used to go to and we've actually met each other there and talked and everything! i just sort of responded in a non-commital sort of 'yeaaah..i know exactly who you are' kind of way and that seemed to satisfy her, but i still have no idea who she was.

hopefully your neighbor just blows this off and doesn't think anything of it (and doesn't say anything to his wife!) maybe your hubby can fill you in on the details of who this guy is? i definitely can understand your embarrassment...fibro fog is the pits!!

Oh Donna, don't feel bad.. he probably thought you were still half asleep.

This little story will hopefully make you feel better.. a couple of years ago my brother in law stopped by (which he never does.. he's legally blind, just like my hubby, and can't drive.. so just popping in is really unusual.) I had no idea who he was!!  And this guy is family!!! He had sunglasses on and a baseball cap.  I yelled to hubby, "honey there's someone here for you and I don't know who it is"  I wouldn't let him in till hubby got to the door.  Imagine how embarrassed I was when it turned out to be my bro-in-law.  (lol.. with the baseball cap and sunglasses the guy looked like the Unibomber and scared the crap out of me)

Here's another one... my hubby's best friend stopped by one day and I didn't recognize him at first because he had shaved his head!!  I saw that guy a couple of times a month.. you think I'd know him right off the bat.. but NOOOOO.  Again.. scared me half to death when I realized I had no idea who he was. (I thought I was losing my mind).

Hope that put your mind at ease a little.

BTW... I didn't sleep very well last night either.. I think it's gonna be a nap day.

Warm hugs,

Donna, I'm terrible at remembering faces too. I had met the couple down the street after moving here. One day, probably a year later, there was a woman walking by the house while I was working in the front yard and she started talking to me and I asked her where she lived, it was my neighbor. blush I will never forget her face again.
 
I didn't use to be like that when I was younger so I think it is either age or fibro. It is disturbing sometimes when we forget things like that.
 
luv and hugs

Donna, don't let this upset you at all- You did not get much sleep, and you were groggy and in pain. It's not like you are close to him. I would not have remembered him either! In fact he would have scared me half to death!

If it makes you feel any better, I can carry on a conversation with my son when he is half awake and he will not remember a thing- and he does not have fibro!

Love the chocolate on the cheek part though!!! tongue

Donna, you have no idea how many times this has happened to me!  People will come up and say "Hi" and use my name and start asking me a bunch of questions about my family, etc.  I not only don't know their names or recognize their faces, I don't every remember seeing them before!  I just do a lot of smiling and nodding!  turn

Hey guys!
 
Very new member here.  I know this is a little off subject but I am newly diagnosed with fibro and know very little.  My question is:  Do any of you find yourself in a conversation, you're the one talking and in mid sentence you have absolutly no idea what the conversation is about or what you were saying?  This has been happening for a couple of months now and I'm really scared.  Sometimes I just breakdown and cry because I don't know whats going on.  I am having extreme pain in ALL my joints and muscles and I developed severe asthma that landed me in a coma.  I don't know if the memory problems and confusion is part of the fibro or if maybe I have some kind of damage from the coma.  All I know is I don't feel like the same person anymore, I have become the family joke with my children and even though I don't let on, it hurts.  It's also very humiliating.   Sorry to be boo-hooing, I just feel so alone.
 
 
Thanks for listening!

Hi, Michelle. Welcome to the forum! You asked if we ever get 'lost' in our own conversations - YES! Not a day goes by that I don't have that kind of conversation. It is bad enough w/ my family, but that is one of the biggest reasons I had to stop working. I had a classroom of students, halfway thru a lesson, and I just lost the entire train of thought. I figured, 'Well, that happens to everyone, once in awhile'  Yes, but this happened several times a day - everyday. Most times my children will ask me again what I meant by some word, b/c I use the wrong word that makes absolutely no sense at all. Most times I give them a look and laugh it off, but it does bother me.

I had to go to the bank to handle business for my mother. The lady there always helps me w/ my DM's stuff. Each time I go to her office, I mess up some word. Today, my brain was trying to say 'transfer', but my mouth insisted on saying 'transport'. Bless her heart, she never laughed at me, she sat waiting till I could finally get the word out of my mouth. I will even go over what I want to say before I go somewhere, doesn't matter. I still screw it up.

I have started many a conversation, to get sidetracked, and totally lose the point of the story.

You are concerned about possible complications from the coma, I don't blame you. Have you spoken w/ your dr? S/he should be able to tell you if any problems your are having are a result of the coma. But memory problems and confusion are also things that many of the ppl w/ FMS have. You are still the same good person you were before, you just have health issues. I don't know how old your children are, but maybe you can give them some info on FMS on their level of understanding. Explain some of the effects of this DD. To help you better understand the 'joys' of FMS, look to the 1st pg for Fibro 101, a lot of great info there. Read the back posts, you will see ??? others have asked, and suggestions that were given. Also, keep asking questions. That is what we all do, we are all still learning about Fibro. Remember, you are not alone, we are all in this w/ you. God bless.  Alice.

Alice,

You just have no idea how much your words of kindness mean to me!  I am in tears right now because I have felt so alone.  I'm a 37 yr. old single mom of three teens. 17 yr old daughter, 15 yr old son and 13 yr old son.  The medical issues began about two years ago.  The pain has increased to the point that I sometimes don't know if I can go on.  I can't really explain it to them because I don't understand it myself.  My primary doctor finally got tired of me and sent me to a Rheumatologist who said it is fibromyalgia, and that was it from her.  I don't tell anyone I have it because when I told family members (sisters ect..) they said that "fibromyalgia is just another way of saying that it's all in your head".  The Rheumatologist said that I need medication to help control the pain but my primary said that he sees no medical reason to give pain meds for fibromyalgia.  So how can I explain something that I am totally confused about myself.  I don't go around people anymore because I just make a fool out of myself, I get everything all jumbled up and I get embarrassed easily. When I get embarrassed I have a panic attack which just causes further embarrassment... I won't even talk on the phone anymore, I will only communicate online with people.  Boy, reading back what I just wrote makes me see just how pathetic I really am.  I'm sorry for bothering you with all this.  Thanks again for your kindness, if only everyone were as understanding as you this would be a pretty awesome world!

Michelle

Donna, that happened to me about one week ago.  I was at a Pizza Hut with my daughter & 2 grandkids.  I noticed Emily was having trouble sitting on the seat so I got up to look for a booster seat & heard someone say "Hey, Aunt Denise."  I looked around & there were 2 young men sitting in a booth.  They were both looking at me & smiling & I didn't have a clue who they were.  I said Hi to cover up my confusion because I couldn't figure out which one had said Aunt Denise, I had had my back to them.  So, I was really really embarrassed.  Then one of them said "I thought that was you."  I recognized my nephews voice & then it all clicked into place.  I hadn't seen him for a few months but that was no excuse to not recognize him.  I feel so bad about it, I will never tell my sister, she wouldn't understand at all.  The other young man was a total stranger so I could quit kicking myself for not knowing him.  I think I should take up drinking then people would understand if I blanked out, oh I guess that would be blacked out. 
 
Michelle, welcome to the forum & never, never worry about venting or crying here.  I am so happy you have found us & I hope this will be a healing place for you.  I always have conversations where I forget what I am saying.  Whether its a word, a name or the whole conversation.  I used to cover it up quickly because & was so embarrassed but now I just say "well, now that is an example of Fibro Fog". Then I either ask what I was talking about or what name I forgot & then go on with the conversation.  It is part of who I am now, since I don't look sick at least this gives them some clue as to what is going on inside of me.  Your family members should be totally ashamed of themselves for their behavior.  You have an actual illness, it is real & they can not minimize it away.  You also need a new Doctor.  We have all had to shop around to find a good one.  Just because they have a license to practice medicine doesn't mean they are any good.  You are not pathetic, you are in the early stages of a diagnosis & that is hard deal with.  I hope you will come here I let us help you through it.  Many hugs, Denise

Hi Michelle and welcome to our family. You won't be alone with fibro anymore since you found us. I forget words and my family is getting pretty good at filling in the blanks for me, I forget what I'm talking about in mid sentence and sometimes I feel rude cause if I don't say what is on my mind when I'm thinking about it I forget all about it.
 
If your rheumy is willing to help you with the pain than let him. All docs do not think alike when it comes to fibro. I do not take narcotics cause I have had some bad reactions to them but that is my choice. I do have a bottle of vicodin in my cabinet if the pain ever gets bad enough for me to give into it. Everyone is different in how they choose to treat their fibro and everyone's pain level and fatigue level is different. For me it's the fatigue most of the time.
 
Ask questions, read all you can and vent when you need to.
 
luv and hugs

Hey Michelle,
I know what you're going thru.. I've been there and its just plain awful. But with proper meds hopefully you'll start getting back to your old (young) self again.
Be glad your doc sent you to a rhumey! They have a better concept of what fibro is all about.
I don't blame you one bit for your fears and I hope you'll get some answers as you work your way thru the forum. Be sure to check out Fibro 101 .. second thread when you enter this site. Its great and helped me with a lot of my questions and concerns. It also helped me realize that I wasn't losing my mind.
I also wanted to welcome you!!!
Wishing you a happy and painfree day..
Patti

Hi, Michelle, and welcome!  I used to be embarrassed when I would forget what I was saying in mid-sentence, but now I just laugh.  You aren't stupid and you don't have Alzheimer's.  You have a cognitive memory problem brought on by an illness.  It is something that you have no control over.  I have told people, that I care about, that is is a congnitive memory problem caused by illness and that usually helps them to stop and think.  People are used to my doing that now and never react.  They'll just remind me where I was in the sentence and then I can continue.
 
Shutting yourself from the world isn't the answer.  Facing fibromyalgia head on is!  Right now you are allowing this illness to control you and how you live your life.  But, you can turn the tables and control it!  It definitely is possible.  I know because I did that.
 
First off, you need to be in control of the pain.  If your GP won't help you then go back to the rheumatologist that diagnosed you and said you needed pain meds.  I'm just wondering why they didn't prescribe something for you.  You do need a doctor that believes in fibromyalgia and it doesn't sound like your GP is one of them.
 
I don't take prescription meds for my pain.  I use ibuprofen with food and extra strength Tylenol for my pain and I use malic acid/magnesium supplements for pain and fatigue.  These don't make me pain free but they do give me control over the pain.  You might talk to your doctor about this.
 
Be sure to check out the Fibro 101 thread...the second thread on the forum.  There are links there to good information about fibromyalgia including a link to symptoms, good stretching exercises, and a link all about the malic acid/magnesium supplements.
 
Read back posts and ask questions, too.  We are here to help you.  I really want to see you feel better and start stepping out in your life.  There's a big, wonderful world out there for you to enjoy!  We only have one shot at this life and I hope we can help you make the most of it. 
 
Meanwhile, I'm so glad you found us and joined it!  We have good people that have great ideas on how to live a full and enjoyable life with fibro.  The bonus is that we really do care about each other!  You take care and I hope to hear more from you soon.

Michelle, you're very welcome, but the ppl here have been thru the thing of having ppl doubt or hurt feelings. We don't need that around here, this should be our safe place to come and talk and feel comfortable w/ our emotions. The other good ppl here have always treated me that way, they have been so kind and caring. That is the way we should all be, IMHO.

The rheumy seems to have got a grip on the situation, maybe the meds will help w/ the pain and panic attacks. It sounds like it is worth a try. Your PCP on the other hand is off base. You are in pain, it isn't in your head. You might want to think about another PCP, someone who knows what they're talking about. Read up on FMS first, a lot of info here, books in the library, etc. Arm yourself w/ info, then call drs. offices and ask if they believe and treat FMS. That will cut your list down considerably. As far as the nay sayers, if they are not going to be in your corner and don't even want to hear what you and your dr are saying. DISTANCE yourself. You don't need negative energy. You need ppl that are 'with' you. That is just fighting two wars. I've gone thru that several times, one person in particular didn't believe what I was saying, she kept mispronouncing the word Fibromyalgia, as if dismissing it, when I said it correctly, I was told, "Whatever". I don't have time to be treated that way.

When you have a bit more info to make you more comfortable w/ FMS, sit w/ your children, explain what you know, let them read some of the info. You don't want to scare them w/ the unknown, let them see what is going on. Let them help w/ family matters, chores, etc. It will give them a chance to help you and let them know how much you trust them. The four of you are a family, the four of you need to work together. If they know computers, and I'm sure they do, let them help you 'find' info on FMS. They may be very worried now, b/c they don't understand what is going on w/ your health. This may help to settle some of their fears.

I don't like to use the phone, either, but it is necessary. If it's a personal call, I will tell the person when I'm getting tired and I know the 'fog' is rolling in lol, I need to get off the line. For business calls -which I hate, but necessary - I write everything down - EVERYTHING, my name, add, phone #, all acct #'s, what I want to ask/tell, etc. It is work to do this, but I can generally get my pt across and get my answers. I'm not able to run around like I used to, I need to make these calls. Don't isolate yourself, you have this one life, don't let anything/anyone cut it short for you. You have every right to enjoy each day. Take time each day to go outside for something peaceful. Sometimes, I just want to stay inside, that is when I MAKE myself go outside. I will walk my beloved dog, walk around in my yd, walk on the boardwalk a few blks from my house. I need to reduce the clutter in my mind. You are not pathetic or a bother, pls don't feel that way. We have all been upset w/ this DD. Keep writing, keep reading, keep asking. 

God bless.   Alice.

Thank you all so very much.  I actually feel so much better emotionally since "talking" to you guys!  It's a great thing you do here, comforting and being "there" for eachother.  I am really glad I found you guys!  I honestly believe that God lead me to you at my lowest point (hope that doesn't offend anyone).  Thank you for welcoming me.  I am going to go read that fibro 101 that you suggested.  Also, ibprophen/asprin products cause me to vomit blood so I can't take them.  My doc gave me Mobic and I ended up in the hospital vomitting blood so he wont give me anything like that anymore.  I do take tylenol, ALOT, but it doesn't help at all. I don't know why I continue taking it, guess I figure that maybe if it "builds up" in my system it might do something lol. Well guys I'm off to educate myself.  For the first time I have a skip in my step (at least my mental step anyway tongue )  thanks to you all!

 

ttyl,

Michelle

Michelle,
Be very careful with the tylenol. It's metabolized in the liver and too much can cause irreversible liver damage. Hot showers, muscle rub creams, heating pads, those all may help. Also, look into taking the Malic acid supplements that many of us take. We've had some awesome results with it.

hello everyone i am new her at this forum,didn'know it existed,found you by accident! I have had fibro for abt 25 yrs.,took the drs. abou 10 yrs to figure out what was wrong with me,so it was prtty new territory at that time .I think i have every possible symptom.you would not believe the people and things i forget ,it used to embarrase me but not any more some times i have to laugh about the expressions on peoples faces when they realize i didn't hear a word they said ,because of the fog(icall it phasing out).But with everything most of us go through ( my husband and i divorced because of it) after 26 years. I somtimes feel we deserve to phase out occasionally,just wish we could pick the time. Love and Peace to all of you . Sybbie

Hi Sybbie!

Welcome to the board :-) I am so sorry to hear about your marriage...I know that fibro can be very hard on relationships. I am sorry that you've struggled with this dd for so long, but I am very happy you've found us! This is a very informative place and the people here are so kind and helpful-it's like family around here :-)

Welcome again!
