What would you like to get mostly out of this group?

Mutual support.

How did your symptoms start?

Very suddenly during a period of stress and sleep disturbances (non-restorative sleep) in the Fall of 2000. In a matter of days I went from feeling fine to "everything hurts". There was no sensory experience (touch, sound, light) that didn't come accompanied with pain.

How long have you had Fibromyalgia?

Beginning around Fall 2000, the symptoms lasted for a couple of years, then they started improving slowly and entered a long remission that still lasts. I am currently symptom free (except for some sleep disturbances/non-restorative sleep). Low impact aerobic exercise plus medical treatment of sleep disturbances have been very helpful.


Diagnosed with fibromyalgia in 2001.
