Fibromyalgia isn't a real illness!!

Hello my lovelies,

I hope this post finds you well. Yes you read this right. I don't believe that Fibromyalgia is a real illness!!

Ok ok, put the pitch forks down!! Before you start a lynch mob, I am not saying that people with it aren't sick. Quite the opposite. I just feel that this mystery illness Fibromyalgia has more to it than just one illness!


  1. For a start it really isn't a diagnosis at all. It is the final straw after a process of elimination. You go through so many tests you will have had more pricks than kerplunk! You will have seen so many different doctors that you will feel like you see them more than your family. By the time they see you don't have a, b, c or d they have no clue so they tell you it is Fibromyalgia. They don't know how you got it, why you got it or really how to treat it either.
  2. Every study that is done contradicts the previous study. Some say its to do with nerves, some say its to do with blood. Some doctors claim there is a test to diagnose it. Some doctors even claim that it is all in our head.... I won't even dignify them with a response to that.
  3. Most of the people I know have so many different symptoms that it makes me think they actually are not all suffering the same illness. 
Cast your mind back to when everyone with stomach problems were just told they had IBS. Everyone I talked to with stomach problems were told they had IBS. It was an umbrella term that they gave to people when they didn't have a clue what was actually going on with them. As the years passed and more research and studies were done, they found that many people with IBS actualy had other conditions like Ulcerative Colitis, Coeliac Disease,  I feel like this is the case for Fibromyalgia. I feel like over time, as more and more studies are done, we will learn that so many of us actually have other conditions causing our illnesses. I already know of people who were told for years that they had Fibromyalgia and found out it was Lupus. I feel like we have been lumbered with another umbrella term and that there is something else going on.

I feel like Doctors are just hoping that they can give us medication and tell us that this is what is wrong and we will just believe them. They don't have a clue and so this is easier. I wish we could all fight more and more because I think if we did we would learn that our illness is not what we think it is. 

My hope is that over the next decade they find out what is going on and what is happening to our bodies, how to help us and how to prevent this from happening to others. 

What are you thoughts on this?? Remember I am not saying your illness is not real!! 

Sending gentle hugs,

Lyndsey

    1. You see! This is what concerns me, that so many people with the fibromyalgia 'diagnosis' are actually suffering from other undiagnosed conditions.

  2. I too after much testing was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue syndrome. However the doctor told me that my diagnosis was based on eliminating other diseases. However, after I started using Bio-identical hormones (after suffering with nothing for 2 years of no HRT due to complete hysterectomy), I started feeling better. Also I realize now that my diet of sugar and processed foods was poisoning me a little at a time. I was 40 and felt like 70. I am off sugar and breads and pastas. I drink more water and eat nutrient rich greens and grassfed butter and take collagen. Basically Ketogenic Diet. I feel like I am in my 30s now. I think all along my health issues were nutritional deficiencies. Drs treat and diagnose symptoms, they do not know anything about nutrition. Some nutritionists go by the food pyramid which is incorrect. Sugar is an addictive drug. Sorry if this sounds like a rant. Our western diet is the cause of so many diseases.

LMX - Little Mix Makeup Brand Review Part 1 Shout out to my Pout

Hello my lovelies,


I was so intrigued when I saw that there was a new makeup collection exclusive to Boots. LMX is a brand brought to us by Little Mix band members. They have everything from eyeshadows to highlighters.

I purchased a couple of box sets from the Boots 3 for 2 range. Sadly one item came broken. I was gutted but Ho hum, I moved on and just reviewed the rest of the products on their own. I will continue my reviews of the brand as soon as I get my replacement.

So my two items I have thoroughly tested are the Shout out to my Pout Liquid Lipstick and Liner collection (rrp £18) and the Rock in the Gold Get the Look Palette (£14).

Lets start with the lip products, get the negative out of the way early. I purchased this kit of 4 lip liners and liquid lipsticks. I chose this specifically because it was nude tones and I thought well at least one will suit me, how wrong was I. I found them so orange toned, none of them suited my skin tone I was so dissapointed. They tout this as a n…

Living with Chronic Pain: My Positive Story!

I saw a post on a facebook group recently. It just said, Does no one have a positive story about their Fibro. It stopped me in my tracks. We always hear the bad and how awful living with Chronic Pain is, and don’t get me wrong the life I live is not what I ever expected to live, but I am so blessed to be able to stand up and say me I am a positive story!!
Nearly 7 years ago my life hit rock bottom. My body had had enough. I was working in a nursing home and absolutely loved my job. My body was not loving it though. After months of being in more pain than usual I went to the doctor expecting him to give me a sick line for a few weeks and after a rest I wholeheartedly believed that I would be back at work in about a month. That was not to be. I went from bad to worse while we tried to find suitable medication. The doctor took me off the pain relief I had been on while we tried something else, the problem was we then realised the full extent of the pain my body was actually in. We didn’…
