Fibromyalgia Diagnosis Confirmed  
I am hoping the fact that researchers have found a physical cause means it's ok to come out of the Fibro closet now. See this: http://communities.washingtontimes.com/neighborhood/steps-authentic-happiness-positive-psychology/2013/dec/29/fibromyalgia-solved-pathology-not-mind/

Unfortunately, the bulk of Fibro inspired drugs are not available to me for a variety of reasons. I asked about Lyrica and was told it's so close to gabapentin that since I had a bad reaction to the one, I'd probably also not be able to tolerate the other.

I'm hoping the new research leads to other therapies or medicines. In any event it's better to KNOW.

Thanks, I wish I'd noticed the symptoms and put them together as one thing much sooner.

{{hugs}} but you know now and have a wealth of information to guide you. like my osteo - i knew it was there but i just couldn't do anything about it due to the lack of insurance. now it's confirmed, and i'm medicated, chiropractored, and am going to start pt as soon as i can get in.
