... therapy? I could not lift over 2lbs in each hand already. I don't want to start too soon if it will harm injuries worsen. My wrists never healed is why I couldn't lift over 2lbs in each hand. This last Wednesday I got trapped in the bathroom where I work. The door was approximately 10lbs. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia about three weeks ago. I have experienced more pain since reinjury.
Stephen gave you the perfect answer.
You willl learn to live with Fibro and will do anything not to have a trigger.
There are enough observations on your plate.
Go to a specialist in Fibro because it's a whole new ballgame.
Don't get orders from anyone except your Fibro man. There are still docs that don't believe in this syndrome.
Do you have chronic fatigue syndrome? They often go together.
If you don't, keep your immune system strong, exercise as your doc instructs , get enough sleep, eat natural food, avoid stress to avoid CFS.
I'd suggest that you, as a newbie to Fibro, start using a daily diary.
Try and get an app that records your dailty symptoms, how you treated them and if it worked. Any new observations especially new triggers.
The doctor will also find this very helpful to monitor your syndrome.
Use the technique as a personal diary to register your thoughts and feelings and that of your family.
You only need a few minutes but in a year from now you will find what your thoughts were at the time and your insights now.
