    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    I want to thank all of you who replied about dizziness and fibromyalgia. Its weird that mine may come on when I'm just sitting in a chair.

    Thanks again!

    one of the worst parts of fibro --in my mind--is when a totally new weird thing happens. You don't know for sure its 'just fm' so you trot off to the dr. and they run spendy tests, decide its 'just fm' and you feel like a hypochondriac..but then again--if you don't trot off to the dr and get the tests or find out for sure-- you risk it really being something else. the curse part of this.
    ggladieux replied to missist's response:
    True enough, especially since I hate going to the doctors, particularly specialists. Unfortunately they are a necessary evil for folks who have FM and other chronic health issues. Take care of yourself.
