Hi I wanted to introduce myself,
My name is Kim. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and RSD. I got fibromyalgia from a vaccine I was given when I joined the military. The RSD started after surgery on my right wrist. I injured my wrist in training and was told I had to have surgery. After the surgery the pain never went away. Then in jan 2011 I fell on the ice in front of my car. I injured my right ankle. It never healed and I have terrible pain when I walk. I now use a cane
due to my illnesses and injuries I developed severe depression and anxiety. I had to retire from the military and cannot work. Recently I have been having worsening of pain and these odd pains that come and go in my bad leg and arm in different areas. I also have been getting bouts of severe weakness that come and go. I am currently seeking a new medication or treatment. I do not tolerate medications well. I experience very bad side effects from everything. I am also right now between doctors as we have just moved and am waiting for an appt with my new PCM so I can get referrals to specialists. I have not been happy with any of the doctors I have seen so far. Most of them have been very unsympathetic and seem to think that this is going to clear up and go away or that it is in my head
. Anyway that is my story I am looking forward to hearing other people's stories and hoping to share some answers!
