    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    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 was diagnosed with fibro January 20, 2009. I went to the fibro research center at Oregon Science & Health University. I live 90 minutes away so didn't persue treatment there. Prior to this diagnosis I had 2 months of literally not getting out of bed except when necessay. Just moving in bed and getting up was very painful. I am on several meds but don't feel they are sufficent and /or the right ones; and I agree with the other posts that doctor's are reluctant to prescribe pain meds.I am trying to find a doctor who specializes in Fibro, but to no avail yet. Yes I have all of the symptoms and I know I must keep moving with excerise .Do not give up my fellow"fibro" friends, we are the masters of our "new" life coping with fibro.
