Fibromyalgia

Some people have asked about the fibromyalgia, since I don’t talk about it much. My version of fibro has been really quiet until recently. Now in addition to the muscle spasms, pain, and weakness, I am also having a lot of the cognitive issues (severe brain fog – I literally forgot I had a 3rd child the other day – inability to do simple math – not being able to figure out where I am in familiar places like my own kitchen, inability to comprehend speech, sensitivity to loud noise -which never has ever been an issue before, etc), plus dizziness & vertigo, trouble swallowing, and other digestive issues I don’t feel like discussing. It’s a LOT. Thanks for being concerned about me!

Here’s a link to a good fact sheet about the symptoms of this disease: https://www.verywellhealth.com/fibromyalgia-symptoms-716139
