Re: living active with pain all over -- fms?

Cam, many of your symptoms sound like fibro. I had fibro for years and didn't know it, but just kept going as I do now. I do think fibro does get progressivily worse in some ways at least mine has. Just making sure your thyroid is in good shape is important, make sure you see an endocrinologist that specializes in that and not just get the "your within range" from your gp. Also if you are not getting good deep sleep that is important also. If you get a chance read the book 'From Fatigued to Fantastic' by Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum it is very good. I bought a copy but I am sure you can get it from the library.
