I've avoided going to see a specialist about my pain. I guess it's just too daunting to accept that the pain I feel so often is never going to get better. However, with becoming pregnant my fibromyalgia has flared up so badly I couldn't ignore it anymore.
I'm worried however, that there still won't be anything we can do to lessen the pain. It's horrible. My lower back and hips lock up after sitting for short periods of time. Yet my sciatica acts up with too much activity. So so frustrated!
The worst part is that I still have four months to go with the pregnancy, then I'm sure the fibro will be triggered by lack of sleep and too much stress once the baby is here.
Anyone here with fibro have any advice on how to keep this under control, or how to handle this first appointment? I'm scared of seeming like I'm overreacting, or scared of under stating the pain I'm in. :/
