Extreme Fatigue
2 Replies
Mims - February 12

When I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in 1994, my chief complaint was of pain. Now, 10+ years later, I still suffer from pain after exertion, but more than that, I suffer from dibilitating fatigue after simple exertion. Consequently, I have come to live a very sedentary life, outside of work and household chores. How can I improve my muscle strength without experiencing this severe fatigue?

My mother goes to the pool with other ladies that suffer from fibromyalgia and it is easy on the joints and helps her gain some strength.

Did you know your insurance company dictates the tests you get and the answers your doctor dismisses as Fibromyalgia? I've been going through this crap now for over 7 years, and continue to worsen. Lung disease, thyroid disease, nodules, fevers, liver and kidney disease, and the list goes on... The fact that doctors don't even examine or even touch me anymore and keep dismissing my problems as "fibromyalgia" made me realize that there is a conspiracy going on. Go do an internet search on "Fibromyala dismissive" and read up on the controversy. Here's what I've had to do in order to have a physician finally admit that fibromyalgia is merely passive to satisfy the patient and keep the insurance company from paying to allow a correct diagnosis and treat you effetively. You really need to research your symptoms thoroughly. Print off the facts you find, ask for specific testing and most important of all...BRING A WITNESS TO YOUR DOCTOR APPOINTMENTS. You must drill your doctor with your witness present why they don't test for other possibilities based on the facts. Be sure and request copies of your tests so you have the information you need to keep researching the possibilities.'re in for a rough future, and paying for the insurance company's profitability through your suffering. Best of luck!
