AuntTammie this is specifically direct towards a comment you made on the previous thread. I didn't want to post it there because I didn't want it to get "buried". You mention how you think possibly those of us with FM actually had a higher pain tolerance than others BEFORE we had FM. This is VERY VERY true of me. I had my gallbladder out, was back to work the next day. I had 2 C-sections, no problem, was back to work in 1 week. I had breast reduction surgery and was back to aerobics in 3 days. Now everyone is telling me that I'm just a baby and can't tolerate pain - uh.......what??????????
