    Well, since I am responding to people's posts, guess I should introduce myself. Actually I am 69mach1's sister in MI. She has been telling me for awhile now that she thought I had Fibromyalgia. With all her ailments, no offense Jodie, but it scared the crap out of me to think of going through what she does. I'm not as bad as some others here, my sister included, but I definately can't do the things I used too. I have been dealing with Chronic low back pain now for almost 4 years, and was diagnosed with Fibromylgia in June. My worst pain is in my back, and when I have flareups like I have been the last couple days, you can add my shoulders, hips and legs into it. My Rheumy has be on tramadol 4 times a day and elavil at night. Tramadol does a decent job. Doesn't keep my pain free, but I can definately tell a difference when I don't take it for a couple days. ( I was out for 2 weeks, thought I was gonna die!)
    I have sacroilitis in my sacroiliac joint, and my lumbar vertebra are twisted. I've had 2 epi injections in my sacroiliac joint, but they didn't do a darn thing. I've had bursitis in my left hip, shot of cortisone works wonders for that. My hands will flare up on me at times, and I can't even pick up a gallon of milk, it sucks.
    I also have a very active 3 year old named Brooklynne and her little brother is 19 months, named Brayden. I'm a busy, busy gal to say the least.
    My family all keep telling me I need to slow down, but it's just not possible right now. I'm trying to get into the nursing program here in my town, still have a couple years I'm sure before that will happen, so I'm taking my gen ed classes while I wait. I do the best I can, and I pretty much learned when I just need to say no and get help. My husband isn't exactly the most supportive, so I'm on my own a lot. But there are days where I just tell him, look my back is killing me and my shoulders hurt like hell. I need you to let me rest or else I'm not going to be able to work. He whines a little, but I don't even give him a choice. I just tell him to do it.
    Well now my hands are starting to hurt and the kids needs to get to bed. Look forward to the meeting everyone, so to speak!
