Chills and nausea

My fibromyalgia has worsened considerably over the past few months (not helped I'm sure by the tragic death of my 28 year old son last March) . I have began having, frequently, severe chills and nausea. A whole barage of blood tests have come back clear and I believe it must be yet another symptom of the worsening fibro. My Gp says he's never heard of it as a fibro symptom, but he's hardly heard ...

Any tips for fibro-fog?!

Hello! I won't speak for anyone else, but for me fibro-fog is one of the most frustrating and humiliating things! I know exactly what I am trying to say but I cannot get the words together/ forget what I am talking about- often mid sentence. Sometimes I find that it helps to close my eyes, but most the time I just find myself apologising and looking like a right numpty! What are everyone else's experiences? ...

Hi everyone,

"High Functioning" Fibromyalgia

Hi, new to the forum world! I have only had my diagnosis for around 9 months and I am having a difficult time coming to terms with it. To get the diagnosis I saw every consultant under the sun, had nerve conduction studies, MRI's, CT scans and several blood tests; all of which took over a year. During this time I have been at university and somehow have managed to get to my third year ...

Make up defying sweats

I haven't been on the forum much lately but thought it might help someone else suffering like I did for months. Every time I put makeup on it would run off before I left the house because I would sweat so much. I recently bought some new make up from a link on Facebook. It was not specially designed to withstand sweating and was advertised as makeup. When it arrived I discovered it is actually ...
