Listen to Your Body
I have suffered with the diagnosis of Fibromyalgia for over 30 years… I want to say, do not let your doctor tell you that all your complaints/symptoms are all Fibromyalgia, because they may not be. I listened to the doctors and thought they must know.
I have a bad back and was told it was fibro, but I found out it is in bad shape with degenerative disease and more. Now I am seeing a neurosurgeon, and more than likely will have back surgery in the near future.
My point is, “listen” to your own body/mind and don't assume everything is Fibromyalgia [or ME/CFS] and suffer. If anything, get another opinion. - Bonnie McCue
