i just turned 20 years old.... and i have been dealing with the symptoms of fibromyalgia for a few years now. i feel like the odd ball. i have never seen anyone under 50 at my specialists office, and i do not know of anyone else my age who suffers from fm. i was an extremely active kid and teen. i played co ed soccer for over 10 years (and suffered from mysterious joint pain that was not arthritis). even now i go snowboarding a couple times a week but i honestly feel like it is killing me from the inside. i do not know what to do. im only 105 lbs but i feel like im tugging around 200lbs! sometimes the pain and weakness is so bad that i physically cannot get out of bed. even sitting for 5 min and getting up is excrutiating. my friends dont understand how much it hurts when they poke my arms and i constantly get told off for being sick or too tired when all i did was walk around the mall for an hour. even sitting in my bed on my laptop writing this... my legs hurt so badly that i could cry. i am currently taking trazodone and im thinking about trying cymbalta. i am so incredibly desperate to try anything now. are there foods, energy drinks, vitamins, exercises, anything that could help? i need to find something soon. my goal is to be a wonderful mother and i fear that i wont be able to not only survive a pregnancy but take care of my children in the future if anyone has any advice i would deeply appreciate your suggestions. thank you so much. lorraine.
