The Battle that is Fibromyalgia

This post may contain provided product or affiliate links. All opinions are 100% my own. Find out more on our disclosure page.

When I first started dealing with fibromyalgia, it started as migraines. Migraines that no matter what, would not go away. A headache all day, every day-the only difference is the severity would fluctuate.  I had pain that started in my neck and went down my back. A flick to the skin could leave me flinching […]

I hate fibromyalgia. Imagine losing your life but still being alive. Or maybe imagine the feeling you have when you are sick with the flu. What if that pain never went away?  As I’ve had to see more than my share of IVs, injections, this pill or that pill, it’s easy to feel worthless. I can […]

When pain management fails

I have been seeing a pain management dr in the last several years. Recently, they decided they were going to screw around with extended release meds. My insurance doesn’t approve extended release in the med they are trying. This requires a ton of paperwork, appeals, the whole nine yards. When they decided hey we are […]

Tomorrow marks another trip to the pain management doctor. I’m scared. Then again, I’m always scared. There’s an anxiety from pain management appointments that is to be expected. Hello, you’re going into a place knowing you are likely to be getting a TON of injections or an injection that goes far into a muscle, joint, […]

Today I had it all planned out. Go outside, the girls and myself wearing purple, and take some fun photos. I was ready to make a Faces of Fibro video in support of Fibromyalgia Awareness Day. I got to wear the purple and that’s about it. Nothing has gone as planned today as instead of […]

Well, my headaches are back 110%. I previously have been diagnosed before with chronic daily headache and sure enough, that is what’s happening right now. Last week, I was in the doctor’s office twice. No relief. We started a new medicine and it has done NOTHING to hit the headache. I’m sick of taking medicines […]

I’m in a headache flare. It’s not fun. I’ve had two visits to my doctor already this week. Praying it will just go away on it’s own. I think we’re looking at another visit to neurology soon. Fibromyalgia and invisible illnesses SUCK. I saw something on Facebook though that made perfect sense. “You might not […]

Last week, our car was vandalized. I can tell you, I would never wish pain on anyone, not even the individual that did so to my family vehicle. For the past six years, I have lived with chronic pain. What started as migraines on a daily basis has moved to my back, legs, sometimes my […]

Pain sucks. There’s no way around it. Whether you have a high pain tolerance or a paper cut can make you cry, no one enjoys it. After epidurals and SI joint injections didn’t work and I’m at the “Max” for steroid injections currently, the doctor said, “Let’s get you hooked up with a TENS unit.” […]

Today I received an e-mail. September is Pain Prevention Month. As someone who suffers from a chronic pain syndrome, I can tell you-if you can prevent pain, you take it. Over the weekend, I started dealing with cramping in my hands. Today after a meeting, I started having cramping in my toes. It really is […]

Another SI Joint Injection=More Pain

I do not know why I agree to let the doctor do this, especially knowing how I hurt the first time around. I am know three days post-injection and I am regretting once again allowing the doctor to give me the “Let’s see if this will work”. My leg is burning, my hip joint feels […]

I wrote about the sacroiliac joint injection I had and that by ten days, we’d know if it would work or not. It didn’t work. I have now been fighting this pain attack for 2+ months and it has gotten unbearable. While many people tell me to rest, my response is simple, I have kids, […]
