New Description

I haven't felt like posting for awhile. It just gets like that.

I did hear a lovely description of fibromyalgia the other day. It was described as a condition where the pain fuse has been blown. That's exactly what it felt like to me.

I went from a period where I could successfully handle pain to not being able to handle it. I took pain medication but an occasionnaly tylenol was nothing like what I was and still do have to do every day.

What did suprise me was the list of co-occuring disorders. Let's see, it was fatigue of course, thinking problems (fibrofog), dry eyes, dry mouth, sleep disorder, irritable bowel and irritable bladder.

Wow, I have several of those. Although I knew one went with the fibromyalgia, I never even considered the others.

I'll have to think about it some more. What do you think?
