Greetings Everyone. This is my 2nd post on these forums. My first was made in the Lupus section as I've been struggling with more than just Fibromyalgia and I'm awaiting a Rheumatology appt next week to go over the latest test results. (You can read that post here: www.healingwell.com/community/default.aspx?f=29&m=2028762
In any case, I was dx with Fibromyalgia which my former Rheumatologist deemed "severe" back in November 2007. I've been on quite the roller coaster ride with much more downs than ups. After a rough pregnancy, my symptoms became drastically worse and the latest test results show I may have Lupus or R/A...or something else in addition to the Fibro. With five children and only 34yrs old - I feel like my life has been stolen from me! I am insistent on homeopathic/natural treatments as I've had far too many negative outcomes from medicine/antibiotics in my past and sadly, many treatments for the Fibro seem to be unhelpful (Vit D, PhotoTherapy, etc). I'm also awaiting disability benefits after a 2 1/2yr battle with Social Security over lost & missing medical files. Ugh - what a PITA!
If my name rings a bell anywhere, I am also member to medhelp.org's forums but getting answers to questions and having comments to my posts often take months so I sought out a new forum to hopefully connect with others struggling with the same/similar medical maladies. Anyway, hopefully eventually I'll be able to offer more help & support than to glean from it. ;) For now, I'm desperately seeking answers and support.
