I am 56 yrs. old. I have been married for 38 yrs. I have three children and 12 grandchildren. I worked for the same company for 37 yrs, which closed down in Oct. of this year. I wish I could more outgoing for my grandchildren but the fibromyalgia keeps me from doing the things I want to do.
When I first went to the doctor about my problems, I was having so much pain in my neck. At night when I needed to turn over I would have to put both my hands around my neck to turn over. The pain was terrible. As times has gone by, it seems to have went down my body. My worst pain is in my neck, legs, and hips. I moved out of the bed with my husband so he could sleep because it seems I don't get a lot of sleep anymore. He is very understanding about all this. He was like me, he had never heard of fibromyalgia before. I seem to be really bad lately about forgetting things. I think sometimes this bothers him but over all he trys to understand. I just get so tired of taking so much medicine.
