I have been living with fibromyalgiafor the last 10 years..wasn’t diagnosed for the first 4 years. It’s one of those medical situations where it’s not considered a disease or recognized by all medical field. For the first 4 years I went back and forth from emergency rooms to doctor appointments to be told that there’s nothing wrong with me. I have even been on a cane not able to use my leg and still told it was all in my head, Once I was diagnosed at Methodist Hospital in Brooklyn, NY I felt a sense of relief..”Im not crazy or a hypercondriac”. The doctor explained that it is a hard illness to diagnose and that it does exsist, fibromyalgia attacks 12 different points of the body
When these attacks accur it is one of the most painful and depressing things I have ever had to deal with. It interferes with my sleep, activities and spirit.
Thank you for staying until the end
