Hi Jenpro and welcome. In the fibro 101 thread there is a list of "what else could it be" did they bother to rule all those out before giving you a dx of fibro??? We have many on here that can't even get a doc to give them a dx of fibro, it's like their docs are afraid to say the word. Having fibro can be very frustrating cause of the controversy in the medical field and in society. I so wish I had magic powers and could make some feel what I feel everyday just to show them what living in a fibro body is like. That's why we are so close on this forum cause we all understand what each other is going through.
We all have our own little things to help us deal with the pain and fatigue of fibro. We know more about what helps with fibro than the docs do. I love my massaging showerhead, Jeannie just got a new massaging chair cushion and when we find something new that works we share it with everyone but what works for some doesn't work for others.
I was also dxd with Sjogren's while they were doing all the testing to find out what was wrong with me.
Stick with us and you will learn more about fibro than you ever wanted to know.
luv and hugs
