sharie l plewa - August 5

I gained a lot of weight but I was told it was from the medications I have been on for the fibro. I maintained the same weight for about 3 years (still too high to want to admit :-P ) but once I was diagnosed and put on meds, about six months after that I suddenly gained 10 pounds and now at this point, almost a year later, I've gained almost 40 total. I'm not happy about it at all, and the bulk of my weight gain has been in my stomach too, but I think that's just because of how I'm built. Hope this answer could help you some.

I have yet to have a definitive diagnosis of fibro however after an accident in january and a diagnosis of chronic myofascial syndrome and my own personal pharmacy of drygs that have not worked I have gained a whopping 45 pounds. I am going to a physiatrist today and hope to get more explanation. Nothing I have tried to get hte weight off has worked, but my inability to maintain any kind of activity level surely plays a role. I know how you feel going from a size 3 to a 12 has been devestating for me. I'll let you know if the doc has any answers. Hope today iis a good day for you.

I also gained nearly 40lbs after coming down with Fibro. It made me extremely depressed since I had worked so hard to lose almost 70lbs prior to becoming ill. I did find an article that helped ease that pain a little. It tells of how people can gain an average of 35lb with fibro. Here's the link http://fmaware.org/fmOnlineNewsletter/
