well now this year I am starting to have dizzy spells. they are really rough. my husband means well but told me I needed to walk to get over them. I saw where fibro people are actually passing out from these at times. I just hope they go away but I don’t agree with my husband. his answer to me when I talk about anything i’m going through is usually to walk. i’m also sick to my stomach a lot now and that’s new too. i’m getting very frustrated. I want to walk and get in shape I really do. why can’t people see that? there are so many problems that I have and still I get this attitude from people that it’s not that bad. I need prayers from all you believers. my husband said I didn’t even have fibro in an argument we had in front of his mother the other day. I think he really believes that now.
Awww Jenni you are just having it rough all around. I’m so sorry. I personally don’t get dizzy spells. I know if I was dizzy I wouldn’t be walking around, that’s the last thing you do. Perhaps he looked it up on the internet and it does say walking is good for fibro which it is but not during a dizzy spell. Another medication I’m on for my nausea is Zofran. It works WONDERS for your stomach. I also want to walk and get in shape too. How can people tell you it’s not that bad when they don’t have what you have? Say do you have fibromyalgia? No, so back off LOL I’m sorry about what your husband said. There are articles all over the internet that talk about fibromyalgia. Tell him I said he should be ashamed of himself. If he truly loves you he should believe you. I believe you!
Wow Jennie. I’m so sorry you don’t have your family’s support. If I’m stepping out of bounds let me know. One of the ways I educated my family was to get my hands on lots of literature and just left it lying around. When I say lots, I mean lots!! I don’t have any dizziness but I do have the nausea and sometimes my gag reflex is on overdrive. I feel for you. I am right now praying for your family to understand and for you, strength to handle what may come❤️
I’m sorry you’re having dizziness. Have you been to a doccto be sure it’s your fibro? I’m just thinking it could be inner ear or something else causing it and you might be able to get some relief? Hoping for the best!
Sorry you are having dizzy spells and sorry your husbands answer is to walk ot off. I agree with the others walking & dizziness is a bad combination.
Idk how much your husband knows about fibro but mine didn’t know a darn thing. Well i take that back, he knew i had it and i see a specialist & my PCP for it & i take alot of medications for it and thats all he knew.
So that being said one day at dinner i asked him if he knew what fibro was and he said no. So I started telling him the signs & symptoms of fibro and he was speechless. And as i learn more about fibro and as my symptoms get worse i tell him too so we learn together.
He’s not perfect there are times I sense he gets frustrated with me bc i complain about my pain and exhaustion so then i just put on my “out in public face” aka “smile & fake being well”
Its hard for someone who doesn’t have fibro to fully understand so we need to try and help them understand.
Good luck and God Bless!
Jenny I am sorry you are suffering please see a doctor about your dizziness and since your husband is so disbelieving why don,t you take him to the doctor with you,and in front of him tell the doctor that your husband does not believe you and can he explain it a bit to him. Best wishes.
I get some dizziness but usually only with barometric changes…if the barometer is steady its gone…
But like the others say, get it checked, because the inner ear is tricky and cn easily get off balance, and with fibro we are very sensitive to every change
There were many suspected reasons for about 7 0r 8 differing kinds of fibro…i have a genetic form where many family members have it or had it
Hi Jennifer I’m sorry that u r dizzy but I came down with vertigo a couple of years ago and it was horrible being dizzy is terrible u might have it but u have to go to the doctor and boy did it help and I’m sorry about the support I’m sure it was a man thing people that don’t have fibromyalgia just don’t understand I don’t have a great support system either my husband tries and thinks that iif something works for someone then it should work for me I’ve tried a lot of things boy a lot pain pills right now r helping me but I know because some people who are abusing them they will be taking them away from me and I’m scared because it helps me right now to get through the day I only take what he prescribes to me and would never share because I need them but I hope u go to the doctor to help you with the dizziness I would say God bless but I have lost hope in that also can’t believe God would give me or anyone else this much pain but anyways that’s a whole new subject so hope u have a good day!!!
fortunately for me the dizziness has subsided I believe with a lot of prayer. I also have another symptom that has cleared up almost completely. but I still suffer from this illness. I had found a list of all the possible things that could happen to someone with fibro. I showed it to my husband and although he didn’t act moved by any of it he did say he sees a lot of them in me also. I also wrote him a letter once not too long ago and tried to explain things to him. he has told me that I basically need to suck it up and move on with my life. told me the story of his father and what he went through losing his leg and how he kept himself through it all. it’s just not the same to me. but anyway. don’t give up on God kittyboo. there are many trials in this life for us.
