When it comes to fibromyalgia, I probably am willing to try any procedure atleast once to see if there’s a chance it will help. Last week, I saw an article pop up on one of the fibromyalgia support pages I belong to on Facebook and I instantly found myself digging in. Patients with fibromyalgia resistant […]

Fibrosymptoms

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 […]

The other day I was told something that has stuck in my head and rang true. “Let people say whatever they want because in the end, they aren’t the ones that are living.” Sometimes we are forced to cut ties. When my fibromyalgia issues started, I knew it would be no walk in the park. […]

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 […]

Having fibromyalgia comes with alot more than a diagnosis. There is no cure for this pain syndrome and you will often meet many that don’t understand or the doctors that are less than understanding. It can be beyond frustrating living with fibromyalgia and not having very many that understand. If there’s one thing I’ve learned […]

While Fibromyalgia impacts between 3 and 6 million Americans, there still is too much “unknown”. You can’t say “I have fibromyalgia.” like someone might say “I have asthma.” People just don’t get it. Fibromyalgia pain is real. At one point in time, fibromyalgia was a diagnosis given to anyone with chronic pain that could not be explained. […]

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 […]

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 […]

So, I was anticipating today that I’d be encountering a round of trigger point injections all over again. NOPE! My doctor said I’ve been doing great from what I told him and because of that, we’re pushing it out. If I need to get in before the next appt., I just need to let them […]

Since the first time I was referred to Iowa City, quite honestly, I was given hell by everyone about, “Why do you have to go so far? You need to go somewhere closer.” Really? Um because if I had a choice yeah, I’d totally pick the god awful long drive to get injections and the […]

Yeah, the needle is bigger than that.

Since about a week before Christmas, I have been in a pain flare-up. I’ve had a constant headache but it keeps wavering back and forth. I got thinking about it and honestly, I need to stop referring to my headaches as migraine as if I tell you I am diagnosed with chronic daily headaches-that probably […]

Yeah, the needle is bigger than that.

On Monday, my cousin went with me to Iowa City for another appointment with my Pain Medicine Specialists. Overall, I have felt a difference since the first injections. A few weeks ago, I started feeling more pain and having issues again but, I knew the things wouldn’t last forever. Now anyone that knows me understands […]

Today I will be heading to Iowa City to the Pain Medicine Center for my second round of trigger point injections. It is about a 2 1/2 hour drive. Since these can be different for everyone and everytime, I might be a bit “out of commission” typing but I will be back as soon as […]
