I've mentioned in a few posts, been a post meiser this aftn., that I was dx'd officially by a rhuemy in Jan. I told him I was glad he believed it was a real condition because I have ran into grief with a few docs telling me it is just a junk term for I DONT KNOW WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU SO WE WILL CALL IT THIS! Well, this rhuemy got quite defensive and assured me fibro was very real. I read that having a vitamin d deficiency can be in common with having fibro. Yours truly has vitamin d deficiency. I take supplements and make sure I get my rays in, but don't over do it. What's up with that?
All I know is this pain is so real. The stiffness is horrible. Just read here about ones difficulties with locking. My elbows, shoulders freeze on me a lot after being still for like 2 to 3 hours and it hurts like the dickens until I get that oil moving through those joints again.
Are we believed to have a real medical condition with fibro or do they think we are just all depressed crackpots looking for attention? SOme days it is just so hard to get out of bed and continue on. Heck be easy to stay there, the exhaustion is unreal!
