Fibromyalgia is real

I begin to tell you WHAT IS FIBROMYALGIA?

  • Is a REAL illness.
  • A chronic pathology. That means that when it begins it never desapears of your life.
  • Until today, we don´t know what is its origin, or why it appears.
  • The general pain is the principal symptom. ¿Can you imagine that? General, it means in all your body!!
  • Besides the pain, fibromyalgia comes with another symptoms like these: disrupted and poor quality sleep, intense fatigue, mental dullness (fibrofog), low sexual desire, irritable bowel syndrome, bruxism, headache, and many more.
  • Medical treatments don´t be a lot off effective to control symptoms.

And now, I´m going to tell you WHAT ISN´T FIBROMYALGIA?

  • Is not a mental sickness, is not a psiquiatric pathology.
  • Is not an invention of the person who suffers it.
  • Although the symptoms can be worse sometimes, fibromyalgia isn´t a degenerative sick.
  • It doesn´t decrease the life expectancy of those who suffer from it.

How is life with fibromyalgia?

You feel terrible, so tired, like you haven´t slept at all. You feel worsed than before you going to bed.

Your body seems is being crushed by a huge weight, so you can´t move with agility. Bed sheets feels like a fire on your skin.

Finally, with a great effort you can do it (sometimes in silence not to bother the others). You feel like “a crushed soda can”. When you move, every pieces of your body it hurts.

And this wonderful day, turns into a very difficult day. And it’s just the begining.

Along the day, this situation doesn’t get any better.
