Lightbulb Re: Chronic Fatigue vs. Fibromyalgia

I am 21 years old and I got diganosed with Fibromyalgia in 1998 & a year later with Chronic Fatigue. I know about everything there is to know on Fibromyalgia & Chronic Fatigue so if anyone has any questions please feel free to just ask me! Fibromyalgia (the word itself) means Chronic Fatigue so yeah if you got it you got the other. My life has been totally controlled by my health conditions so when my doctors quit caring about me I deceided to take it upon myself & do my own research. My doctors just want to cover up the issues with heavy narcotics & stimulants & now I have a huge addiction problem to deal with on top of that! Remember your doctor DOESN'T always know best! I have been on narcotics now for about 8-9 years & I feel like this is a battle that will never end. So PLEASE think carefully before being put on any type of narcotic pain releiver.
