Hi folks. I'm new to this site, but I have fallen in love with it after reading so many postings! I was diagnosed with FM over a year ago, but my Dr. seems to think I must have had it for at least 6 years now. (Glad he finally got tired of my whining!) I have the most intense pain in my legs and lower back. I have tried several meds, but I am allergic to almost everything (aspirin, ibuprofen, sulfa, etc.)! I am still working since I am a single mom and don't have much of a choice! But, this past week has been really difficult. I don't feel like getting out of bed in the mornings, but it hurts to lay there. I don't sleep because I can't get comfortable and my legs twitch and ache all night. I have used Flexeril and am quite fond of it, but it (like so many other things) hurts my stomach. I feel like I'm so alone in all of this. My Mom and the rest of my family make jokes and really don't understand when I say I just don't feel like doing things. I wish they could understand why! I get so discouraged because I want to spend time with my son and do fun things with him (he's 5 and VERY active!), but I just don't feel like moving. When I finally get a day off, I just collapse! I'm so glad there are people out there who understand and have the same issues. Thanks for being there!
