Fibromyalgia Poems

The Truth about Fibromyalgia Pain

Fibromyalgia doesn’t just consist of one type of pain

It can be anything from burning to stabbing to tingling or anything inbetween

It could be a mixture of all of the above.

This pain can form in any part of the body at any time.

From the knees to the feet, the back or my shoulders

I may or may not do something that causes it

It’s like my body is rolling dice to decide where will hurt next and for how long

I can no longer prepare for a lot of things as I just don’t know how much pain I will be in

I have tried so many things to help but nothing gets rid of it. There is no way to stop the pain.

I try painkillers, muscle relaxers, tai chi, walking, resting, drinking water, vitamins

I try to avoid things that may cause me more pain

Some of it helps to a certain degree, but it only eases it slightly

I am still in agonising pain even when I don’t show it

I just try to ignore it as if I don’t, I won’t be able to do anything

I try to act as normal as I can, despite the fact my pain is taking over my life

It controls and commands me but I fight it

When you see my pain, please know it is because I just cannot hide it that moment, that hour, that day

The pain has beaten me this time but I will get my revenge

I always find a way to carry on and I always will.
