Talking with some ladies on another board it appears that there are quite a few of us with fibro--and I know others have posted on this board about it as well. I thought it might be good to share our ups and downs with this disease and new developments. Welcome! I was diagnosed about thirty years ago by a rheumatologist who was on the cutting edge of the disease. At that time it was called something else (which I can't recall) but he did the point test and told me I had it. I was re-diagnosed a year or so ago. I also have OA so the medications I take for that seem to help the Fibro. I need more exercise (I know, I know) and when the weather changes I have a lot of pain. What type of symptoms do you get and how do you relieve them?
