- By


Fibromyalgia patients experience chronic pain of extreme intensity throughout their lives with no cure exists. They have to adjust their lifestyle to manage their pain with other aspects of life. To give our readers a glimpse into their lives and How do People with Fibromyalgia start their day? , we asked our Facebook community Living with fibromyalgia and Chronic Illness a question “Write a 10-word story about waking up in the morning when you live with fibromyalgia?” for our website Fibromyalgia Resources.

Requested them to share their stories, consisting of only 10 words, in the comments!” We share their responses below while most of them said that the start of their day is Pure agony, exhaustion, stiffness, pain everywhere, disoriented, and it is another day of suffering.

Here is what community shares with us on waking up with fibromyalgia:
