It can be depressing, but the most important factor in dealing with FMS is not to give in to it. You've got to keep living your life. Yes, there are times when you must stop and rest, but don't just give up! Roaming pain is part and parcel of FMS. That's one of the distinguishing factors. Arthritis stays in one place, as does back damage. You never know from minute to minute where FMS will hit. You'll have good days and bad. Enjoy the good all that much more!
I live a normal life. I work as I can. I clean as I can. SOmetimes it will be a month before I can vacuum, but that has now become okay. I fought it for years, but only hurt myself. Don't fight it. Roll with it.
