Local woman shares her story of living with fibromyalgia during the pandemic
YUMA, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY) - A Yuma woman with fibromyalgia and arthritis shares her experiences while trying to live through the pandemic.
Fibromyalgia is a condition that causes pain all over the body and those who have it are more sensitive to pain.
For Christa Usteszewski, she was diagnosed with the disorder six years ago just before she was set to run a marathon in Hawaii.
Usteszewski loved running and was also a short distance triathlete.
As she was training to run her fourth marathon, Usteszewski remembers feeling an indescribable pain all over her body.
Due to the pain in her body, she decided to visit her doctor.
She told the doctor she couldn't pinpoint where the pain was coming from, however, the doctor was able to diagnose what Usteszewski had.
