Fibromyalgia is not supposed to be an inflammatory illness. Ok, I've got that. Then why do so many of us have inflammation as a daily part of our symptoms? I know I do. I cannot take any NSAIDs like ibuprofen, although I was desperate yesterday and took one Aleve. It didn't wreck my stomach, so I got away with it. It did help me feel better, so I know inflammation has been the problem the past few days. Makes me wonder if I've been misdiagnosed? I have osteoarthritis as well, and tendinitis in my hands and wrists. I've been tested repeatedly for RA, with negative results. Anyone have any thoughts on this? Peace, Beth.
