Hi MommmyisQueen. I'm also very young with fibro. This has been going on for 2 years now. I have been through atleast 20 doctors and I have finally found one that took me seriously- instead of just saying....you're too young to have pain or you're looking for drugs or all of your test came up negative so there's nothing wrong with you....It was the most devastating thing I have ever gone through... well not really, but it was rough! I know exactly what you're going through! I'm 27 and have a 9 year old that I really can't do anything with anymore cause mommy is alway "sick" I want you to keep trying a doctor that will help you...I'm not sure how severe your fibro is but mine is terrible! I feel like I have the flu everyday....That's the best way I can explain it. I saw that they put you on celexa. I'm not sure what that is...I've been on everything but that I guess. I found that the anti-depressants did a reverse act on me and made me depressed. The only thing I take now is hydrocodone...Which after 2 years barely works anymore. I hate to tell people I take narcotics but it is the ONLY thing that cuts the pain at all! Nothing else has worked. I'm not a drug seeker...I barely took tylenol before I had all these problems....I wish you the best of luck and I will be praying for you because I know exactly what you're going through....God bless you!!!! xoxoxo

Jsummer, many have had some success in reducing their pain with malic acid/magnesium supplements.  It seems many are lacking these in their systems and that can cause pain.  The same hold true with vitamin D3.  Ask your doctor about these.  I did.  He didn't think the malic acid/magnesium supplements would help but he said they wouldn't me either so I tried them and he was wrong!  They do help me with pain and fatigue.
 
Be sure to check out the Fibro 101 thread...the second thread on the forum.  There are links to good information about fibro there, including links about malic acid/magnesium supplements and vitamin D3. 
 
Be sure to keep moving, too. If you sit or lay too much, you will be stiff as a board and have more pain.  There are some good gentle stretching exercises in Fibro 101 that really do work.  You also need a gentle exercise that you can do daily.  My choice is walking and swimming.  I feel so much better after taking a walk and it gives me more energy, too.  Walking in place videos are great, too, if you live in the frozen north!  I have a Leslie Sansone one that is really good and not too strenuous either.
 
Heat is very good for fibro, too.  Hot showers and Bed Buddies works just great and really do help. 
 
I'm sorry that I didn't see you before now.  I'm glad you found us and joined in.  Now, you should get some welcomes to this forum.  We do have wonderful members that love to help one another and they really do care about each other, too.  I think you will like it here!  Don't hesitate to ask questions, either.  We are here to help you.  I hope to hear more from you soon.
