My husband divoced me as soon as he found out what Fybromyalgia was and what limitations I will have. at age 39 I was devastated when he told me that he wasn't going to deal with it. My Fybromyalgia it what they call Trauma Onset, it has caused neuropathy in my hands and legs pain levels that no one should ever have to endure. I went from a full active life to bed ridden and cant walk without extreme pain. My grown daughters are having a hard time excepting that I cant do as I use to, and get frustrated.
My Fybro cause Fybro fog, days I cant stand to be touched or get out of bed, it's an ongoing joke that when my inhome caregiver shows up she asks" are we touchable today"
Most people don't realize that Fybromyalgia when it get to a certain point it affects your internal organs. I have to take shots biweekly to keep my B12 at an exceptable level, and calcium for bone health, after all these years I have,B12 deficiency,Ostiopenic, neuropathy, sever muscle spasms that cause involuntary muscle spasms that cause my legs and arms to jerk and I sleep in a nest of pillows it try to get comfortable enough to sleep. my eating habits are at just a picking stage, I fall asleep in my chair while doing things. Fybromyalgia is a progressive affliction. It has taken away goals and dreams, I hope no one ever gets to the point I'am in this affliction. The medication they have me one become my breakfast, Lidacane patches on the most painful spots, Major Depressive disorder and PTS, anxiety, along with the others I have mentioned. I'm hopeing someone comes up with a cure or at least come up with something that make this affliction more tolerable.
