What is this pain?

I do not know what this pain is. I’m unsure if it is psychological or if I am suffering from one of these chronic pain disorders that seem to be surfacing recently.

I do not doubt that many people suffer, daily, from invisible illnesses but because many are ‘invisible’ it’s difficult to determine who is telling the truth and who may be using it as an excuse.

I was given the diagnosis of Fibromyalgia a few years ago but with regular exercise my symptoms decreased. Does this mean I do not have Fibro or that regular exercise can in fact be a way to treat it?


I suffer with pain of some sort every day. That could be in my neck, shoulders, hand (just one), head or legs, there will be pain somewhere in my body. To be honest it is now normal for me to be in pain, my boyfriend regularly asks “What hurts? Or would it be easier to tell me what doesn’t hurt”? It is painful and sometimes I wonder if I don’t understand any more that it shouldn’t be. Why should I be in pain every day? That’s not normal. Some days I want to just sit and cry and truth be known, some days I have.

I do not know what causes this pain and I may never know. It could be just be a build up of tension, my body doesn’t relax anymore and is therefore constantly tense and rigid. It may be a hereditary problem, for which I shall blame my Dad :).

Is it fibro? tension? psychological? arthritic? or maybe even aliens?

I’m hoping for aliens because then there’s a chance that it might go away. For now though I’ll just continue on a healthy diet of chocolate, codeine and moaning about it to Chris ā™„
