Hi, all! I'm new here. You can call me CC (well, you can call me anything you want, really) if you like. I'm bp1, and I remember symptoms as far back as when I was 9 (I'm 38 now). I'm on a lot of meds right now 'cause my old pdoc was not so good and had me cycling rather quickly. I just look forward to having a place here where I can feel comfortable and like people understand me. That's not something I've really had before. Anyway, I'm willing to offer advice or cheer whenever I can!! Hope to hear from you all soon!!
I can relate to all of this (hope I'm not out-of-order posting here)!! I'm currently undx'd with what I suspect is fibromyalgia... pain in joints and muscles not otherwise explained, IBS, etc. They just keep testing me instead of coming to that conclusion. It's really frustrating! ...and I was in the hospital recently for a headache SO bad they gave me dilaudid and it did nothing. Then, when I told them that, they looked at me like I was drug-seeking! ....and my MOM was in the room with me! I was so insulted. I believe educating yourself IS arming yourself, despite the results.View Thread
