I am 29 yrs old and have suffered with fibro since before they knew what it was. I also deal with degeneratvie disc disorder. There are a lot of opinons regaurding fibro, there are many degrees of fibro. It is a muscular disorder so every muscle is susceptible to it. Some people are more mobile and capable of being more active, others aren't as lucky. I do as much as I can. Some days that's a lot, some days not so much. If there is something I have planned that I know will cost me in pain I prepare by resting up the day before and utilizing my pain meds. Though I hate taking them, they make the difference of being functional or not. I have found yoga to be helpful. But to all of you who suffer with this terrible dissorder remember that many, in fact most people will struggle to understand. Spur of the moment spasms, muscles that draw into a concrete knot, stabbing, burning, shooting pains cannot be seen on the outside for the most part. People look at you and think you look just fine and that there isn't any thing wrong with you. Instead of being frustrated and angry with them remember that they don't know pain. Not the chronic pain you suffer from. Be thankful for them because you know better. I wouldn't wish this onto my worst and most deserving enemy. Godbless
