Making mistakes simply means you are learning faster. ~Weston H. Agor
I just read a really interesting article and thought I would share…
Here is a list of 13 mistakes that Fibromyalgia sufferers often make… Most seem like common sense, but I know I have made most of them!! What about you?
I think one of the BIGGEST mistakes we can make is allowing our pain to control our movement… I have struggled with this in the past, and I am still a work in progress ;) When every movement brings intense pain, it is easy to just STOP moving… but it doesn’t solve the problem – it makes it WORSE.
Which of the 13 mistakes have you made, or do you make?
Here is another article you might find useful:
Have you had each of these conditions ruled out, or included in your diagnosis? I have been through a gamut of tests (to say the least), and although it is frustrating, it is CRUCIAL to your treatment… Do you have Fibromyalgia, or do you have something that is only mimicking it? Or maybe you have a combination of illnesses (as I do), but you have only been diagnosed with one… Having things ruled out (and ruled in) is KEY to proper treatment!!
I was scared out of my MIND when my doctor told me she wanted me tested for MS… but it made sense considering all my symptoms… Arthritis, Lupus, Auto-immune dysfunction, Lyme disease… you name it, I have been tested – but it has helped narrow down the ‘treatment’ field! If you have doubt about your current diagnosis PLEASE SPEAK WITH YOUR DOCTOR!
I use 7 out of 10 of these products… and although they don’t help get RID of the pain, they help me manage… and they are soothing too! Can you incorporate any of these into your daily life?
Just a little light reading when you have a few minutes ;)
HAPPY FRIDAY EVERYONE!!
