Fibromyalgia/chronic fatigue

4 posts in this topic

Hello,

I'm Reighanion (reigh) I was diagnosed with fibro a few years ago now and I'm finally in a position where I'm able to start rebuilding my strength. I just wondered if anyone else has a similar diagnosis and is willing to chat :)

Welcome, Reigh. I remember reading other forum members who struggle with this but agree that yoga has been helping them.  I admire everyone's strength in dealing with this!

There was some discussion here from @FemmeLife and @yogagrammy:

Thank you, it has been a long and difficult journey but I'm slowly getting used to it now I think. Or at least my good days anyway :)

Hi! Sorry I haven't responded sooner. I haven't been on the forum lately. Yes, I do have fibromyalgia and have had it for several years but diagnosed about 2-3 years ago. I've been on several meds and have given up on the one's for fibro. The best thing I've found for myself (I can't speak for anyone else who has it) is yoga, rest, and the understanding that I'll always have pain to some degree. I've tried the drugs that are recommended for fibro and have reactions to them so I've given up. I do also have lower back pain and have had surgery. I do sometimes need something stronger than tylelnol and have pain meds I use but yoga and walking keep it manageable for the most part.
