Will i ever feel better?

Posted , 3 users are following.

It's been about 7 or 8 weeks now, since my problems started. One symptom goes, and it gets replaced by another. Will things get better, or will i feel like this forever? Sorry, but I'm depressed by it tonight. I just want the pain, swelling,tiredness and dizziness to go away. Can anyone give me some hope please.

    All I can tell you is hang in there, be patient, and measure improvement in months, not days or weeks.  For me, I started a journal and that helped.  I could go back and read 6 months prior to remember just how bad it was.  Ultimately my symptoms changed like I was spinning some roulet wheel, always different and new (but not exciting unfortunately).  

    All in all, I am nearly symptom free after about 2 years but still have occassional flareups, especially if I'm stressed or on the computer too long.  Get outside, sun, exercise and I would try going for massages.
