i was wondering, i'm 16 years old, and i just got diagnosed with FM two days ago. before getting diagnosed, i traveled around numerous doctors, and one doctor told me it was depression, and all in my head. nevertheless, i've still been sick for about four months. i haven't been able to get back in school really, and it takes a tremendous amount of effort to stay out for longer than two to three hours. and even then, i only usually do that once every couple weeks. so, i guess my question is... how did you guys get your lives back on track? i really want to get back to my normal life, exercise, hang out with friends, go to school. but i don't know how to. is there anything that helps, other than exercise, knowing your limits, etc? and does anyone here get real bad migraines that last for a week or two? i just got put on a new med for fibro, cymbalta, the other day. any experience with that? sorry for all the questions, i'm just kind of worried about it all. i haven't heard of anyone as young as me getting it. as far as they can tell, nothing triggered it. it just appeared one day. my mom also has it, but we're doubtful i got it from genetics, because she got it as a complication from a med. anyways, any kind of advice or help would be appreciated :0].
