Hi everyone. I haven't posted in a while but I have a new sympton. I'm wondering does anyone else experience jerking in all different parts of body, legs, arms, neck for example. it is not constant and happens maybe once daily in one part of my body.
It's really starting to scare me. I haven't seen the doctor yet. Does anyone have this sympton? Please any advice is very much appreciated. Love to all.
Thanks Laura. Words have so much power. Encouragement from someone who actually knows what your going through helps alot. Have a beautiful day and and it's alright to get mushy every now and then. ha
Hi! I'm sorry it took me so long to reply. I'm getting ready to go on a trip to Arizona. We will be driving 21 hours. I dread it so much. I don't know how I'm going to do it.
You sure have been through enough trauma. You are one tough cookie. I didn't know endometriosis had stages. I really don't know much about it. I have one boy. He's 26 now so I don't have to worry about taking care of him. I can see how your children can help. They give you something to do; to keep you going, keep your mind positive and not succumbing to this disease.
I'm glad you have your precious children. I know they will understand your limitations eventually and they will love you no matter what. Yes when you finally accept FMS your conscious eases. I felt horrible for a long time knowing I couldn't help my husband like I used to. I used to be right beside him outside working in the yard and other things like that. It is hard, very hard living with this.
I don't know which is worse, the pain or the depression. It's a roller coaster. But we can't EVER give up. There's always something to look forward to. I'm so ready for grandchildren. My son though has been focusing on his career and not looking to get married. He's settled now and he's ready to find me a daughter-n-law, ha. It's just a matter of time now.
I will look up endometriosis and read about it. I know it was hard though. You must have really good ways of coping with all you have been through. I will say goodnight and I hope you have a good day tomorrow.
Thanks for your kind thoughts and that makes sense, Being predisposed for FMS. I'm sorry you experienced trauma in your life.
I like your picture. You and your hubby?
I wish that everyone had a supportive husband. I know be lost without mine. He works so hard and takes up the slack on the things I used to.
My only son is grown. I can't imagine having FMS and having to care for children. I'm sure some of you guys do wrestle with this too.
It must be very hard.
I hope you have really good day tomorrow. I had one today. The first one in a long while. But then my dog was sick so I had to take care of her.
Wow thats alot to go through! I sure hope it helps after all that. It's crazy the things that we have to deal with. My shots worked thank goodness. I can't imagine what you've been through. That sounds like a complicated and dangerous surgery.
I had the shots in my neck because of constant pain in my shoulder and down my arm. It helped a great deal. Now it only hurts if I do more than I should. I can't drive because of the pain it causes in my shoulders and back. I miss driving.
I've also read that people with FMS were abused growng up. I was emotionally abused by my father. He did that with all of us even mom. I
had terrible childhood. Have you ever read anything like that.
Anyway, just wondering if you guys have heard that. It's late and I better sign off. Hope to talk tomorrow. Have a good night.
Thanks Georgia, you all have made me feel better. I do take calcium and keep my vit d checked. My sis n law actually bought me some magnesium last week and I forgot about. I will try it out.
Since you've been diagnosed how many different people has told what you need to do to feel better? I'm not talking about you guys on here, people you know that mean well but don't have a clue whats going on. I have had so many miracle cure suggestions. Don't you get tired of that or is it just me?
I think the craziest one I have had was to eat a small red potato with the peelings everyday and it will cure me. What are some you all have had?
It's late. I will be back tomorrow. goodnight.
Im glad to you had a good visit with the doc. Sounds like he might not think it's to serious. I've been to a neurologist and had every test known to man, ha. That was a few years ago though. I desperately do not want to start all over again.
I've read on the internet of things it could be and I'm thinking since others are experiencing the same thing that its just part of FMS. Yea, I know what you mean about being glad to know someone else is dealing with the same thing.
Sure we can chat, maybe compare symptoms. ha
I'm interested in your back surgery. I have degenerative disk disease with bad disk in my lower back and one in my neck.
I have to always have the tv or radio on or just noise because when I turn my head side to side I can hear the bones rubbing together. I can't stand it! Anyway, I hope to chat again.
Wow you explained it perfectly, LAURAC. Oh I feel so much better now. I hold back some of my symptoms, there is so many. I feel like people think 'whats she got now?' It's so comforting to know that people understand. It's a horrible that we have to go through all this though.
I look forward to your post after your appt.
Sorry for the weird numbers in my post. It was supposed to be a sad smiley face but I guess the emoticons are just for texting. I'm on my phone.
I hope you get good news from your doctor!
Thanks again.View Thread
Thank you both. I feel little better about it now. Elizabeth, I will look up the info you suggested. I knew you guys would help. When I think I'm caught up with a new symptom, here comes another.
Mary, no I haven't been to doc about it yet. I guess I'm putting it off afraid of what it might be. Mine don't bother me much when I sleep , maybe because I'm taking a sleeping pill and a muscle relaxer, I notice it during the day, sitting and watching tv or something.
Fibromyalgia is invisible misery-83D-E16. I'm so glad we have this forum. I don't know anyone who has it so I don't have anyone who I can talk to.
Thanks again to you both.
Thank you for responding. I have muscle spasms but this is like just a jerk, like jerking your hand from a hot pan. It's just not that hard. It's not noticeable to others, it's real light. It happens in several places on my body, even my neck. It's hard to explain I guess. It's happening more and I am scared it's going to get worse and noticeable to others.
