should have seen it coming
I was doing some research a few days ago on Fibromyalgia and found some tings rather interesting at the very least--warning signs if you will for the disease that I missed for years....
1). Most people who suffer from Fibromyalgia also have Restless Syndrome, Chronic Pain and or Nueropathy.
2). Most people suffering from Fibromyalgia also have an auto-immune disorder of some sorts.
3). Most people who suffer with Fibromyalgia also have been diagnosed with Depression.
4). Some but not all people suffering with Fibromyalgis also tend to have discomfort with bright lights, loud noises and some touching.
5). Most people with Fibromyalgia also suffer from lack of "revitalizing sleep". Sleep that leaves you feeling fresh and rested is what I mean here.
6. Most people go undiagnosed with Fibromyalgia for a period of time, before they end up being diagnosed with it.
I wanted to post this so others would no what some of the signs are and what to watch for. If I had only known sooner. Some days are much better than others but most days are very difficult on many different levels. I think so far it has been worse than trying to live with AIDS because those "fibro" feelings and symptoms for the most part are constant.
