fibromyalgia

I have fibromyalgia too. I'm a nurse, in semi retirement, doing research so I can write a book eventually on chronic invisible illnesses like fibro. They tell me my case is post traumatic as a result of car accident and five injuries while working as a bedside nurse and lifting a lot. I was only given the diagnosis four years ago but have suffered for nearly 20 years. There is no easy way to manage the pain, but when you find something that works for you, stick with it and don't fall for any claims of a cure, there are none. I run an educational egroup if you are interested in the latest findings and research and LOTS of information. You can access it at: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/FMS-CFIDS-MCS-education/
Please feel free to email me if you want to chat about this. I correspond with lots of folks who have fibro, CFIDS, etc. Would love to hear from you.
gentle hugs,
Mary Pat AKA Fibronurse
