    Why isn't there one medication they can formulate from combining your meds into one pill to take instead of giving you 20 different pills to take 3 times a day. It would be so much better on my stomach, ulcers from taking all these medications for all these years now.

    Haven't they heard of the word "systemic"? Typically, doctors refuse to admit that they don't know what's going on. Try this. Next time the doctor tells you there's no such thing as Fibromyalgia and it's all in your head, tell him out loud, in front of everyone else, that he's FIRED. It's about our...

    In my many years of having this condition, I have found it to be related to Mono, herpes and CFS (no need to rule this out) and have no symptoms of Rheumatoid Arthritis (Question 6 which must be ruled out).

    I was 'diagnosed' at age 15 (I am 21 now) but felt the pain as early as 5. My prayers are with you and your child during this tough time. The reason I say I was 'diagnosed' was because the doctors said it was a fake disorder and it was just in my head. I am not one to let the pain get in my way to...
