Fibromyalgia & Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Do you know anything about Fibromyalgia, or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome? More than one million patients, barely any research, no known cause, and no cure. Fibromyalgia is a chronic widespread pain with at least 11 tender points, often with Chronic Fatigue symptoms. Chronic fatigue syndrome is persistent fatigue, chronic pain, sleep disturbances, with neurologic, autonomic, and immune dysfunction (a.k.a.) Myalgic Encephalomyelitis.

Fibromyalgia Syndrome (FMS) is often called the "invisible disease," because outwardly, we may look perfectly healthy. Inside though, we may have intense pain throughout our bodies, we may be constantly fatigued and weak, we may be dizzy, confused, lacking sleep, suffering digestive disorders, and generally living a poor quality of life. There is no known cure for Fibromyalgia, but there are ways to treat the symptoms, to improve that quality of life.

FMS is a type of neurotransmitter disorder, in which the pain-signals that our brains receive are intensified, and our muscles do not get the healing nutrients they need. The current diagnosis is usually made by a Rheumatologist who will find 11, or more, "tender points" on your body.

This site is enormous when it comes to the accumulation of information and knowledge, but is small and cozy when it comes to the personal contact with new friends that suffer the same effects of Fibromyalgia, like you. Come here for gentle hugs, tough love, self-help information, and lifelong friendships. Relax and enjoy ~~ A new Canadian site just starting!

Wow! How do you handle this? I marvle at people who suffer so much yet can still manage to function. It makes me wonder why I can't do more with my life, when I have nothing stopping me really. You're an inspiration.

Hi Mo, Glad you stopped by. Somedays I don't handle this very well. Some days it's all I can do to function, or get thro' the day. My house unfortunately tells the tale of neglect,& so do other things. I manage because I have to...because I need to...because I have others who rely on me, and because I need to try & keep going and doing things. I certainly don't feel like I could be an inspiration to anyone as I seem to fail at doing so much these days. I suppose I manage what I do by the grace of God helping me to get thro' these days.
Today has been one of those days where it's a real struggle just to keep going. I just have to keep going, and hold onto that hope that one day, I will find release from the pain & heartaches of this world; on that day when Christ welcomes me into HIS home.

However, it is also because of this negative thinking which is the primary cause of their weihgt
problem. Eating out, especially fast food, frequently can do harm
to your health. Those who think obesity is due to their genetic
makeup relish any news that 'fat genes' have been found as they look to blame
something else for their predicament rather
than their own habits and behavior.
