Diagnosed with severe symptomatic fibromyalgia, exhausted, depressed, weight gain. Anything to ease pain ?

, Hello my name is AAAAA. One year ago, I was diagnosed with severe symptomatic fibromyalgia . At the time I was in my third semester of nursing school,exhausted and depressed. I was out-of-state, away from family, gained over twenty pounds and felt really alone. Now, I have graduated, returned to my home state, but I still feel a lot of the symptoms and I was wondering if better nutrition along with regular, intentional exercise would ease my symptoms, and pain. Thank you for your time.

Hi there, thanks for asking. The reasons for feeling exhausted are quite diverse. In some cases it is due to thyroid low functioning or other endocrine problems. It may be related anemia. It could also be related dysthymia which is a chronic feeling of low mood. With less probability, it could be related to liver or renal problems. It could be fibromyalgia if you have tender points around your elbow or on the sternum. It is appropriate to ask your doctor to investigate about all the possibilities. If no abnormality is found in the laboratory investigations, you can take advantage of some talk sessions for breaking the chain of events which bring for you exhaustion. I wish a good health for you.
