Feeling sore and down

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi all. I was diagnosed with Fibro this year after testing for numerous things, can I ask, are your monthlies heavier and close together? Also my skin is dry and splits, I have sores in areas too, surely not all fibro related 😐

    Hi Budgie09.  The dry skin I reckon must be attributed to this dreaded illness because I have been experiencing alot of this.  As for monthlies not heavier but I am on the pill so that is a reason for not being heavy.  I hate this, and I hate that docs don't do much for us either!

      I am as well as can be expected taking each day at a time thanks.  But I know the feeling, I had a locum doctor tell me it's in my head, I'm not a violent person but I was ready to rip into her.  In my head, wanted to rip her a new head. LOL

      Oh my friend had this from the rheumatologist, my rheumotologist was lovely and explained it to me, hers made her cry! Ridiculous, it's real, I feel it, so do you, it's very real x

      Thanks, I have a monthly every 17 days and I'm worried they will say it's fibro related, always been very painful so I'm used to that it's the fact that they are getting closer together every month that's annoying me, thanks for the reply x
