My fibromyalgia started shortly after I had a very bad fall and seriously injured my back. Its onset was quick so could it go away as quick as it started?
Hi, Susan --
I'm sorry to hear about your diagnosis with fibromyalgia as well as your back injury. The previous answer to your question is correct: Once you have fibro, it does not go away -- it's a chronic condition, but it can be managed with meds, exercise, supplements, alternative treatments, etc. Different things work for different people.
If you're interested in learning more about fibromyalgia, you might check out this site:
You can sign up for Adrienne Delwo's weekly newsletter there (she is a fibro patient as well), which has very helpful and interesting information, and it's been very beneficial for me, not only in educating myself about fibro but also in getting support in dealing with it since my diagnosis just over a year ago. Adrienne is also very nice and will respond to emails directly, although it can take her some time.
I wish you all the best, and take good care,
True, Fibro never go a way but you can live with it as I do. It takes the right meds for your body and support from someone who understands it or as I say has it. Most friends and family will never understand because they don't see what is wrong. Fibro doesn't show like a cut or broken bone so most don't believe it. But you pain is Reall. One med will not control it for most people I know with it. I have been on many meds for it over the years. Nerontin worked for me for 5-10 years then stopped working.
