So I started having pain at 22 and I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia as well I treated that with pain meds and exercise and stuff like that for a while it was manageable and tolerable about 6 months ago my pain worsened and I was unable to get out of bed unable to move my arms unable to move my hands and it was so excruciating I would scream just to get dressed and open door knobs so I went to the doctor they test me sure enough I have rheumatoid arthritis they put me on methotrexate for this and then had to decrease it because it made my liver count elevate which then cause my flare ups to become worse I'm still dealing with this I'm still trying to get it remission and it is very hard.
