What It's Like to Be Diagnosed with Fibromyalgia at 11 Years Old
When did boo-boos turn into something a lot more sinister? Ironically enough, I fell into my fibromyalgia diagnosis...almost literally.
- Debilitating headaches when my neck muscles get out of whack (due to anything from staying in the same position too long to exercising too little to exercising too much)
- Varying degrees of shooting or aching pains down my spine and on my hips
- Longer recovery times/soreness after exercise
- Sensitivity to cold and the need for more sleep than the average person (and especially more than the average college student)
