Wow, I checked my profile and figured out that I have been "officially" battling this for 3 1/2 years...and then for a stretch before that. No wonder I am tired of being sick! I guess I didn't realize that so much time had really gone by. I did get worse after my diagnosis...I went in because I was having pain in those "tender points"...and feeling all over achey so often it was getting hard to work..and I was only working part time. Now here I am ...3 1/2 years later..worse than ever...still battling pain, and fatigue...and no closer to a solution.I have been coming to this board for 3 years, and it has been a spot I come to be "reasurred" that I am not the only one that feels like this! I wonder how long this will last???? HOw long have you been sick??
