Anna’s Story (Fibromyalgia)

Anna's Fibromyalgia StoryWhen I was 14 yrs. old,  I started feeling intense pain in my arms and legs. By 16 we figured out that I had Fibromyalgia. The doctors and everyone else said that I was too young to have this disease, but that doesn’t really make a difference to your body.

I have good days and bad days but my bad days could go anywhere from me having some joint pain to being laid out on my bed all day. I realize that I’ll always be on medication but sometimes it’s hard to swallow that fact.

I currently wear braces on both of my knees and on one ankle, but I know I have to fight through this. I can’t give up, because then I’ll be nowhere. I’ll fight like a girl and continue to try new things to help me feel better.

    My daughter was also diagnosed as a teenager. I have seen her struggles. Blessings to you as you continue to fight every day.
