Pervasive Pain Disorder, that is what my therapist calls my fibro. By the way, Turmoyle, welcome, sure sounds to me like you're in the right place, here. My Pdoc (shrink) doesn't believe in Fibro, refuses to discuss it. Fortunately, my PCP Primary Care Physician prescribes my meds forr fibro. My Pdoc thinks I'm using the Fibro to get meds to zone me out because my life always was a mess. Parents divorced when I was 10, Mother was seriously BiPolar, suddenly had to grow up fast and take care of other two kids and mentally deranged Mom. Soooooo, the shrink says, I'm numbing out with the pain meds so as not to feel my feelings. He might have a little point there, about
20% correct. Yes, I would dearly love to block those years out. What I feel is the culmination of a rough life, having injured most muscles and connective tissue in my body, and it Never Healed. I will ask him, if he was ever injured playing racket ball, or such, pulled a hamstring, felt the pain for a while, and then it healed. What if his body were incapable of healing? Then he gets another injury, say, slipped and fell on the ice. Twisted wrist and left foot. Never healed.Then they all add up to a very sore, achy body 90% of the time. I'm afraid to go to sleep b/c I know how Bad I will feel in the AM. I'm afraid to make a date or an appointment b/c I never know how I'll feel. And, if I push through the pain, which I have done many times, I pay the price threefold. Finding a Rheumy is a good idea. They have to give you something for bad days. Good Luck.
