I am a 38 yr old female that was diagnosed @ 22 with Bi-Polar 1. I have managed my illness over the years and Im doing quite well now. Finally after all of my hospitalizations, meds, etc. Last Setember I married a wonderful man. He is my 3rd husband I swore I would NEVER get married after the other 2! But, I was alone and never had a serious relationship with anyone after what I went through with my twins father. Ok, rambling now. Anyway, I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgias Myositis, Polyartritis and Chronic Pain Syndome. I see my Rhuemotologist regularly. Unfurtunately, due to my extreme med. allergies to a page long list of medications and drug interactions with my Bi-Polar meds my options for treatment are limited. I have been referred to a pain clinic. I am very knowladgable in the medical field, but I am having a hard time understanding these diagnosis. I am declining pyhsically rapidly. If anyone could help me understand my conditions better and maybe give me a prognosis I would be greatly appriciative! Thank you
