Hi everyone,
Im new here thought I would say hi and see if im alone...(doubtful) ok I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia January 2012. I really didnt put much thought into all of my symptoms being possibly related until just lately.... I was in a car accident March 2010 and from that point forward things continually grew....I had overall pain, which could not be explained by the accident and doctors were saying you are fine nothing is wrong with you. I had enormous stress at work (fear of losing job) while continually being written up due to not being able to keep up (even though asking for help). I had stomach issues, which doctor prescribed an unmentionable level of Previcid 90 mg ummm which in turn caused severe dry mouth resulting in losing three teeth...after my braces came off....I had gastric bypass in 2005 and was a real go getter! I was able to do so much physical activity that I could not do while being overweight...then the accident comes, the diagnosis and dare I say about 25 pounds....which is depressing to say the least but I kept pressing forward...after my job ended this summer I decided not to take the muscle relaxers prescribed to me due to stomach issues ( aka gastric bypass doesnt fair well with pain meds). Did ok but now its been 7 months of being unemployed full time and to be honest I do not think I can handle a full time job at this point...on bad days or weeks I feel as though I have been hit by a 18 wheeler truck going like 150 mph...I want my old life back but accept that I want to live the best life I can with this....I so want to lose weight and have done myfitnesspal for over a year with no success....doctors didnt listen that my metabolism slowed down even though i continue to eat on the whole very healthy and as I should with having gastric bypass....I would love to know if there are support groups in central ca, or suggestions as how to get help while being unemployed? with nutrition/dietician that understands the needs of fibro/gastric bypass patient...love to hear any suggestions...thank you all for listening
