MDJunction to me

grandmasylvia"MDJ has been "a soft place to fall" for me as Dr Phil says. I have this very painful rare disease Dercum's Disease and take comfort in finding others here who share their knowledge and compassion. Many
members have helped me just by understanding my anguish and validating
my pain. We are working together to encourage research toward a cure.

ArmyCM I will begin to journal the details of my life when it comes to my fibromyalgia. I have been dealing with this for about 4 years at least, probably more. In the last 3 years, my health has declined significantly and I have seen many many providers in search of an answer. I hope that I can be a help to some else.

Feeling bad today

Sep 23 2011
I woke up today with a migraine.  Of course!  It's a Friday- I always seem to have a migraine then the weekend is near.  I am trying to get through the day and every muscle of my bodyfeels like it is on fire.  I am wondering how much pain medicine I can take and still do my job!  I have more Lidocaine patches on than square inches of skin.  They are popping out all over!  I am beginning to look like a mummy, just in time for Halloween.  Oh well...Work will be over in 5 hours and I can hit the bathtub, more pain meds and bed! Yeah!  It is sad when the highlight of the weekend is bed(to sleep)!!!!!

Ohh my gosh!! I can so relate to you! I have been having severe headaches for almost 4 years and was just diagnosed FINALY with fibro a couple of months ago. I take elavil for the headaches and savella for the fibro. All I think about all day is my bed too. I have 3 kids and it's so hard to function when you're always being in pain. Doctors don't care and no one understands how bad we really feel. Or they just say " it's all in your head " just b/c the drs can't find anything on the MRI's, CT Scans, ect.... I hope you have a better day tmw! 

Hope you're feeling much better. I fully understand about taking the pain med and do the job and the bed.
