Received Dx today

I'm 26, from MD, and moved to FL 5 years ago. I had my Dx of Lymes 10 years ago. Today I received a Dx of Fibromyalgia. I have no clue what this means, I've done tons of research on Lupus, but none on this. Can anyone clue me in?

Re: Received Dx today


I have Lyme Disease also, which has led to Fibromyalgia. I'm sorry you've got this problem also. It takes so much time to get the right Dx and I'm glad you did.

I'd like to 'clue you in' as you asked, but the best thing you could do is research Fibromyalgia on the net, like you did for the other illness.

It's very complicated and there is so much good information out there.

Specific problems you'll see very clearly on this message board, of what we go through. You might have lots in common, so with your research you might want to stay here, read and post and use it as an adjunct way of finding out more about this miserable illness.

Again...sorry you have it. I know what you must have been through and are going through.

And...isn't Lyme Disease wonderful? Ugh!

Re: Received Dx today

Thanks Ed, I appreciate your post. Yeah, Lymes sucks, doesn't it? Now I'm not going to know what symptoms to blame on what disease. Other than hair loss, pain and headaches, I'm so bloody tired. Being exhausted all of the time makes me depressed. Not a good combination. I've tried a million sleeping pills, none have worked though, the just lock me into nightmares without being able to wake. I'm not having any fun.

Re: Received Dx today

Hi Meg--

I used a supplement called 5-HTP to help with sleep. i take it along with magnesium. I know many people have been helped by it, so it's only one suggestion and one option.

And you're right---what's Lyme Disease, which is Fibromyalgia?

There is a popular theory that we will always have Lyme Disease and that Fibromyalgia is one of the things it did to our bodies.

A no winner, you know?
