I was just recently diagnosed with Fibromyalgia after being in constant pain now for a little over 7 months. First they said I had a vitamin D defiency, and then after running more and more tests of everything being normal my doctor said that she believes that I have fibromyalgia. Well that explains it, now how do I help with the pain? I have changed my diet completely taking out red meats, sugars, caffiene and processed foods. I have been exercising on my good days. What else can I do? We are a very active family that loves hiking, camping, and fishing, and I haven't been able to do all of that because of the pain. And on top of that, I have a 4 year old and a 10 month old. It is so difficult to keep up with them all day. Do the symptoms ever get better? I just hate not feeling right, I have zero energy but I am expected to do soo much. My husband knows I hurt but he doesn't realize how bad it is and what I feel like, and doesn't seem to believe me.View Thread
