So, how fibromyalgia starts is different for everyone but how it started for me is pretty easy to pinpoint. I had the chronic pain already, I was dealing with a horrible work situation*, my marriage was falling apart**, the pain was ramping up due to the horrible work situation and boom, I started getting the fibromyalgia symptoms. Sadly, when I went to my primary care doctor who was treating me at the time to talk about it, I was already taking all of the recommended fibro drugs and there really wasn’t anything else she could give me except for a muscle relaxer which she did add to my combo of medications. So, YAY ME, I GET CHRONIC PAIN AND FIBRO TOO!!!
