Fibromyalgia 101

What it is, who gets it, diagnosis and misdiagnosis, and can you treat it?

Do you want some hope, help and understanding?

Fibromyalgia is a pernicious, poorly understood and difficult to live with illness - let me help you start taking steps toward better wellness with it.

In this micro course we will learn:

  • What fibromyalgia is
  • The symptoms
  • Who gets it
  • The arduous diagnosis process
  • About misdiagnosis
  • Who has the most power to improve our quality of life
  • Is there a cure?
  • How can we treat it?
  • My story from miserable to thriving - in brief, how did I do it?
  • What do I do now?

Nearly 8 years ago I was where you are now, in pain, exhausted and barely coping with everything I was meant to do. I had no one to understand and my doctor didn't have anything for me to try. I was too exhausted and trying so hard just to live to have the ability to research and properly experiment with the options.

Slowly, bit by bit, I did the research, tried new things and now I:

  • have halved my pain levels
  • improved my energy
  • sleep 100 times better
  • have far less anxiety
  • have birthed three healthy babies in the last five years
It took me a very long time and a lot of trial and error to get to where I am now - thriving despite fibromyalgia. I want to try and help you reduce your journey.

My blog, Melissa vs Fibromyalgia is featured as one of Healthline's Top 19 Fibromyalgia Blogs of 2019. My YouTube channel was also included in Feedspot's Top 15 Fibromyalgia YouTube Channels list. I have written two books: Melissa vs Fibromyalgia: My Journey Fighting Chronic Pain, Fatigue and Insomnia and Pregnancy and Fibromyalgia. I facilitate two Facebook groups: Melissa (you) vs Fibromyalgia and Fibro Mama Pregnancy and Fibromyalgia. In addition I have created a free micro course and the Fibromyalgia Framework Workbook.

Melissa Reynolds is a Fibromyalgia, Meditation and Yoga Coach, mama, author, business owner and fibro fighter. It is her mission to help you thrive with chronic pain and fatigue, that you receive the tools, encouragement and hope you need in your journey.

In 2019 she got sick and tired of trying classes labeled as for "beginners" or for "when you're in pain" and finding them all out of reach. They were too long or did poses that were not suitable for her body, even as a long time practitioner. So, with three children five years old and under she trained to be a yoga teacher. She trained so that she could share these tools that have helped her so much. The mindful movement, the breathing and the meditation. She is so excited to be able to share them with you now.

What is a coach? Is a coach a qualified health professional?
Coaching a partnership between coach and client where the coach supports, encourages and provides accountability while the client works toward their goals. Where the coach has special knowledge, as I do with fibromyalgia through lived experience and research, they may provide more direction. But the client is ALWAYS in charge. Coaching is NOT therapy. I am not a qualified health professional. My aim is to empower you to take control of your journey. If you need help with mental health issues or counselling please contact a local agency.

I'd be so delighted to have you join us in these special courses!
