Hello, everyone! It's been a very long time since I last posted here, several years. I had been doing so very well, my health was awesome. I began feeling bad, with lots of pain and all the general signs of FM, but I didn't remember it because it had been so very long since I had even thought about FM. Finally, I realized that I had been ignoring the signs of a flare. It had been years since a flare, even while going through all that occurred in the last 3 years, I still had no flare. I think it began in August, but I didn't begin dealing with it until late October, when I finally woke up and realized what was happening. I don't want to return to the traditional treatment methods of a dozen prescriptions and the disdain of the medical community. I imagine many things have changed while I was enjoying living my life without pain, and all the accompanying fun. I will find other options here, perhaps accupuncture and such.
I would like to hear any of your thoughts and ideas. The years I did best I was in a much colder climate, where I actually did much better. I am now in a hot climate and it is making me feel horrible and making anxiety a real thing for me when it hasn't been a problem before. I'm 54 years old, mostly very strong and healthy, with the exception of this returning challenge.
