    Can someone please tell me.....does this FM get worse with age ? It's awful, it just seems to get worse. It is so hard to deal with especially when people think it is all in your head! I try not to complain, but at times you can't help it. It is so hard to work too, especially when you have to be on your feet alot. Thanx for letting me vent!!

    Welcome to our board.

    We just discussed whether these illnesses are progressive. If you do a search on progressive, you will find the old posts on it.

    For some, it gets worse, for some it gets better, and some seem to just settle into a kind of sameness for years. The ones who have gotten better, including me, have agressively treated our illnesses. I am better overall, but right now, I'm in a flare. These illnesses can go into a remission but they don't go away.

    Love, Mikie
