Where are you headed with your Fibromyalgia treatment?

Fibromyalgia treatment

Fibromyalgia is a complex pain condition with many symptoms. As people with Fibromyalgia we are often learning to cope with new and ongoing symptoms, trying to negotiate the health system and also work out what works best for us to control our symptoms and maintain a life that is ever changing.

Sometimes I feel like I am on a medical roller coaster and sometimes I feel like my life is on a downward decline and sometimes I feel good.

Today I am going to take time to reflect and take stock of just where I am at with my treatment. Somedays, with fibro fog, it is too hard to think but today I feel clear. Pausing to take stock of where we are isn't always easy. So I have decided to actively take control and work out where I am going.

I am going to consider where I am headed with my treatment so that I am in control,... a little anyway, as much as I can be when living with chronic illnesses.

I am thinking about what things I have tried, what I want to try, and what I can afford. What doctors have actually helped, what my worst symptoms are and where and if I can make a difference.

I will also take into consideration what Nikki said about mental, emotional and social health and what Terri said about changing perspective as these are things that affect our wellbeing.

Other thoughts are essential oils that may help, my dental health (as I have been having many problems in this area lately), and my posture as I have a lot of neck and shoulder pain.

All of these and more were found in the useful articles in last week's link up of Fibro Bloggers, so I'm absolutely sure if I go through some of the other previous Fibro Friday link ups I will find more inspiration to head me in the right direction.

I hope you are having success with your Fibro treatments.

  1. Always love reading about how fellow fibro fighters are finding ways that helps their pain. Soon I'm going to see a rheumatologist and hopefully they can help me figure out a new kind of treatment. Have a lovely week y'all! x

    Fibromyalgia is a chronic (long-term) disorder defined by pain and tenderness throughout your body, as well as fatigue. People with fibromyalgia tend to have a heightened sense of pain. This feeling is sometimes described as a constant muscle ache. Formerly known as fibrositis, fibromyalgia is often considered a rheumatic, or “arthritis-like,” disorder. But unlike arthritis and certain related conditions, it doesn't cause damage to joints, muscles, or other tissues. There's no cure for fibromyalgia, but treatments are available that may help relieve symptoms and improve your quality of life.
