Hi all. So I am 48, I have 4 kids (3boys, 1girl) The oldest is 27, then my only daughter is 25, next is 16, and my baby is 8. I also have 5 grandkids. My son married a woman who had 3 kids and when they decided to have one together ended up with twins (boy/girl)! I have had CFS since I got a flu shot back in 1992 and ended up with Pneumonia. Never really recovered, and was diagnosed. Was in a pretty bad car accident(car totaled) in 1998 and started having some issues but it wasn't till I had my 16yr old in 2000 that I was finally diagnosed with Fibro (pressure point test 18/18) Since then I have added GERD, IBS, RLS, Raynaud's syndrome, Depression, Anxiety, PTSD, ADHD, and on and on and on....I am now being tested for neuropathy. I just went to the neuro for the first time last Thurs. He did blood work and I have to go in on Mon. for an EMG. The bloodwork shows that my B12(260 pg/mL) and B6(11.9 nmol/Lare) low and he wants me to take B12 shots. I got the med but I have never given myself, or anyone for that matter, shots so I have no clue what I am doing! Anyway that is about all I can think of and I am sure more than enough info on me smilewinkgrin

Welcome jo jo,

Its a nice forum, lots of nice people..ask questions as you like..

I've had fibro since i was young, along the way i found much that helps..

Energy wise..i take supplements, but also use d can research that..not pill form though...but powder..i use a generic version of corvalen m..

I cannot take heavy meds, but take small amounts and use topical pain relievers, which help a lot..

We are all different, but with trial and error, you can feel better and more able to cope with the fatigue and pain issues.

Hi, JoJo, and welcome! Yes, many of us have multiple things wrong with us health wise but there are many good suggestions as to how you can help yourself feel better. It's trial and error as far as fibro is concerned but you will find things to help you be in control of the pain. That helps a lot.

I find that gentle exercise, like walking, helps me with my fatigue. I don't want to walk but by the time I get back home I have more energy and less pain! If you try this and haven' t walked much, do start out slowly.

Be sure to read Fibro 101...the first thread on the forum. There are links to good info about fibro and you will learn a lot there. Good starting links are Symptoms, What Rlse Could It Be, and A Thorough Explanation of Fibromyalgia. All of Fibro 101 is good so do read it.

I'm looking forward to getting to know you better. Don't hesitate to ask questions because we are here to help you. Hope to hear more from you soon.

My mother takes b12 shots. I know that it has to go in the muscle not a fatty area. Can you get a local nurse or go to the health center to get someone to give you the shot?
