For all of you that have had to deal with Fibro it seems forever, this question is directed to you. When I was first diagnosed with Fibro, I remember that I would only have severe pain around my menstrual cyle. Now it seems that I am in pain on a daily basis. My questions are: When I first started with pain just around my period, was this just the beginning stage of Fibro? Will my condition continue to go downhill or is there hope for me? The reason for my questions is that lately my hips, legs, knees and ankles have been killing me, without excluding my upper extremities, which are not as severe. The funny thing is that the pain tops off after about 6 hours and then I have this itchy feeling all over my body that I can't scratch cuz it's inside of my skin. Does this happen to anyone or can someone tell me whats happening to me?
