I have had fibromyalgia for 14 years now. It has a permanent effect on my cognitive attention, memory, focus, and movements.
I struggle almost every day to do simple things as I get exhausted after movement of any kind. In addition, I suffer this chronic at random pain from severe to awkward to annoying to bearable, it varies so much it should have driven me crazy.
It has taken away bits of my personality and especially my sense of humor (as no one would find much joy in constant mysterious sensations however light or intense for a long period of time).
I used to feel like a tortured body/soul. Without sympathy and understanding from other people, I’ve had to learn to accept this existence still with frustrations.
I can find relief very short-lived from any therapies(+altenative) so I tend to ignore what my body tells me in order to actually do some of the normal everyday living activities.
I used illegal drugs but didn’t want to be addicted so I stopped. Prescribed drugs didn’t help. I would do anything to heal from this nightmare.
Pain starts at the back of my head when I wake up lying flat, then starts spreading throughout different parts of the body. Throughout the day, the pain will decrease and increase for no obvious reason I used the think each time weather would vary I would be affected by it. (I live in England).
You become desperate to know why you have been triggered by pain sensations. It has generated anxiety and depression as a result. This condition seems to occur to a positive person with a long experience of stress. I would be willing to participate in any health research on the planet to know more.
