No Cure but Remission

June 16, 2020

It’s amazing the number of times someone has come up to me and said oh I used to have Fibromyalgia and I did this to cure it. Well.. first of all there is NO CURE. They can not determine a cure if they don’t have a cause.


They can, however have treatments. Some of these treatments, while working for some but not for others. For example I have several Fibri Friends who say that Gabapentin was s saviour for them. I, however, found the opposite effects for that medication resulting in dramatically increased pain and a long-term flare.

Some treatment s for some people put us Fibromites into REMISSION. If you are cured, you didn’t have Fibro and were misdiagnosed. Your symotons are the result of something other medical condition.

Remission can but a full remission when, yes your pain and symptoms are gone, but they can return – and they will. There’s also partial remission where pain levels drop, fatigue levels drop, functionality increases and you are feeling ‘better’..

I was on this path when COVID19 hit and I lost almost all of my supports. So, I’m back several years, but still trying day by day.
