Hello everyone, I just recently found this forum and I'm loving it cause there are so many people who deal with what I have to deal with in on a daily basis.
I have fibro, major depression (which seems due to the fibro) anxiety. I also just recently hand my thumb joint fused due to a torn ligament on both sides of my thumb of which never healed so I'm dealing with the pain of that particular injury healing.
Today is such a bad day for my fibro, I can hardly move at all without it hurting. I felt it coming on yesterday and I tried to not push it but I guess that didn't work so now it's fighting off a flare that I gotta deal with. I try to not take a whole lot for it just cause I don't wanna be taking a bunch of medications for it. I haven't been sleeping well at all which doesn't help matters either. I also deal with depression which I think has a lot to do with the fact that I have fibro and can't do all the things that I used to be able to do and along with that comes anxiety cause I can't help my husband out the way he really needs it. Basically I feel useless, he's understanding but I'm sure there are days that he feels like I'm just faking it. But he deals with arthritis so he knows how it feels to deal with pain in his joints.
What out there has everyone on here tried that I might try? I've tried Lyrica but it just didn't seem to help. So anything new or something that others have tried I'd appreciate your input, I'm willing to try anything and everything. I know I need to get in the pool and take advantage of the water and get some stretching done to maybe help out.
