This post is geared toward those with a Fibromyalgia diagnosis, but might be a good read and please share this information as I feel it could help people find answers and a path to a normal life.
I know this post is going to offend. Ok maybe REALLY offend. But with the recent great article posted by Envita, I think this topic needs some further dwelling and consideration. But readers, I am blogging with all the good intentions as I want nothing more than you all to get your lives back. Many of you are completely debilitated, and your lives have been destroyed.
I am hoping that you can all read this with an open mind.
This one really hits home to me since I was misdiagnosed with Fibromyalgia and CFS at the age of 21. I was an overachiever and had all the “trigger points”, IBS, and my blood work didn’t give any revelations so I got slapped with the FMS diagnosis. I had little improvement in the next few years, other than a bit more energy by cutting gluten from my diet.
By the age of 25, in September 2012, I found myself at a Lyme Literate Doctors office as I could no longer feel my left leg. And then came my real diagnoses and my journey began.
I write this for those with Fibro in hopes that you will consider seeing a Lyme Literate Doctor. It could save your life.
Please read my story. Start from the beginning. My first post was on June 22nd. I guarantee that my story will sound very similar to yours. You have been there. You will understand.
Across the United States, there is an estimated 5 million cases of Fibromyalgia. That is a lot! It generally effects women from the ages of 20-50 but no one is exempt from having Fibro as men, and those older and much younger can also be diagnosed with FMS as well.
