hi all,
I hope you're all well and coping ok. Just wanted to ask..
Is there many of you with high cholesterol and/or low blood pressure.....was wondering if it's connected to fm.?
I'm in a lot of pain lately and getting rss from computer use so haven't been on much.
Went kayaking sunday, loved it and was so proud of myself for pushing through the pain.
Tried to post about it twice but it wouldn't go up so had to give up.
BikeBoo, biking with my boo since 1999
Of all the things i've lost, i miss my mind the most! But it has its advantages!
Fibro, spinal arthritis and all that goes with it.

I have high Cholesterol and even higher Triglycerides. I don't know of any connection to FM other than that because of the fatigue I don't get much exercise. I have an appointment with my PCP next week to discuss what to do about the high lipids. Meanwhile I'm trying to watch my diet.
My blood pressure was very high a few years ago but is controlled by medication.
I would be unstoppable...
