Dear God will this ever go away? I am over - weight but have been all my life. I'm 54 and life is horrible now. Everything has come to a standstill. I don't think people really understand unless they have had it. It's a curse. Will I ever get better?

    So sorry you are in pain....I've had PF most of my life, but not too bad.
