I have been reading threads to trying and learn all I can about my symptoms and condition. It really helps to see that others struggle with my same questions and problems, although I would never wish this on anyone, it is nice to know I am not alone. Even though there is no cure, at least I know that it is not all in my head, there really is something wrong with me! I now know, that after having FM and living with all it's aches and pains and added irritants for over 3 years, that I never really experienced a FLARE like I am currently having. I was so worried I had some terrible deathly illness or brain tumor that was causing me to be so sick, but every one of my symtoms can be linked to my FM! I just didn't see it. Thank you to all who share your life on this board, it really does help people.
