    I was diagnosed with Fibro 5yrs ago but can remember having symptoms as far back as 10yrs. Maybe a little longer.

    My question to you all is I have continued to have pain ever since and how do you know when you're in a flare or in remission. What's the difference?????

    If you are cured then was it really Fibro?

    Looking forward to reading all replies? ;)

    I was diagnosed 4 years ago after having various symptoms for over 25 years. (It's a relief to finally know what it is.)

    For me a flare is a worstening of symptoms that make me bed ridden. I don't believe that fibro is ever cured. The symptoms come and go, which is why it's so difficult to diagnose in the 1st place. Sometimes I won't have some things for years and then they'll be there every day for weeks or months.
