Hi everyone,I'm a 29 yr old female, I'm new here and think it's great we can all talk about our situations together. It makes me feel better that I'm not the only one having the same illness and it helps me get through each day I got onto a serious car accident on July 25/05.(not my fault at all!!!) I've gotten alot worse over time, but doing everthing to get better, I MEAN EVERTHING!!! I had my own very successful business as a hairstylist! LOVED my job, but don't have it anymore! I just got diagnosed with FMS and I even had to start using a cane because the pain is so excrusiating in my back, knees, ankles and feet and I still haven't even had any improvement from the car accident injuries. I've never been on any meds before this, but now I'm on anti-depessents, the durageic patch(100), mucsle relaxers, clonazapam, and oxycocetes, and with all these meds my pain level is an 8 out of 10. I have never had a wieght problem and I eat very healthy and I take two to three ten to twenty minute walks a day with my dogs(my body dosen't want to but I my escape right now) I have gained a little over 30 pounds since this has all happened. I know this should be the last of my worries but I want to know is anyone else going through this. I know I'm not active anymore, but I really do eat very nutritional and don't over eat either. I am thinking it is the meds that I'm on. Anybody else feeling frustrated about this or have gained alot of wieght??? Thanks for listening!!
