  • Hello , I am so sorry for the suffering you are going through.I was also twenty five when I started with my illness. I am now thirty and my illness kept progressing to the point where now I am in a wheel chair. But despite my fibromyalgia-MS the lord has enabled me to continue home schooling my five children. Even though the pain is really bad it helps to keep a social life. I know when your in pain you want to isolate yourself but visiting with your friends can help you keep your mind off your pain. Dont let this illness steal the dreams and plans that you have for raising your daughter. Do all you can till you cant go no more. God Bless you Tabaitha Brown

  • Have you seen a rheumatologist about your problems? You say this all started within three months of having your child, it makes me wonder if this was related to the pregnancy and the release of the hormone Relaxin which can cause problems in some females.
