Hi everyone! I have posted here before but not for some time. My doctors have told me they think I have chronic fatigue but sometimes I wonder if it is really fibromyalgia. I get times when I feel I can handle life and other times like now when I feel I want the world to stop so I can get off. In the beginning of this awful thing that has invaded my body I felt tingling, extreme tiredness where I felt the need to lie down all the time , as well as loss of appetite, anxiety, depression and a sore neck and shoulders. I was taking chinese herbs for that and felt better then I hit a relapse so I lost faith in that. I turned to vitamins. Then I started to feel better again only to hit another relapse this time with irritable bowel, more tingling, and muscle spasms, depression and tiredness again with a sore neck and this time brain fog. I turned to massage therapy which was helping me feel so much better that the symtoms all but went except the occasional tiredness which I could cope with and the sore shoulders and neck. Well different people have told me that it could be fibromyalgia as I have had stiff shoulders and my neck is unbearable at times. My massage therapist told mwe last week its the worst hes seen me. He said Im carrying so much stress tension in my back its like concrete. I feel like tightness in my colarbone as well as my neck, side of the front of my neck and shoulders. I get a tired feeling come over me when my neck starts to hurt. Anyone else ever feel like this? Stress seems to have brought my latest attack on I think as I have had a few problems with my 16 year old daughter who recently ran away from home. She has been gone 5 weeks now. She chose a boyfriend over her family and is going from friend to friends house to stay. I dont feel much support from my family at this time and depression has set in today. Anyone suggest anything natural to take while I get through this difficult period of my journey in life? Also has anone heard of Bowen therapy and if so does it help? Sorry about such a long post but I am having one of my down days today. I guess I will survive! Smiles!!
