From Irish news service Independent.ie:
When it's an effort to just get out of bed
It's a debilitating condition for its many sufferers. Symptoms are varied with medical knowledge really only in its infancy about fibromyalgia, Paul Deering talks to Catherine Keaney on how she copes with the illness.
It's usually worse in the mornings says Catherine, referring to a condition she has slowly got on top of after several years fighting it head on.
Morphine patches for pain, an inability to get out of the bed, fatigue, depression and general lack of interest are just some of the symptoms of fibromyalgia.
There's also what is termed the fibromyalgia fog as it called which can occur any time of the day but mainly first thing in the morning.
"I could wake up and if there was someone talking to me and asked me something it would take me a minute or two to digest what has been said and another minute to reply.
