Patient discussion about input

Q. Can I get some input with regard to the link between fibromyalgia sufferers and breast cancer? I am a fibromyalgia patient living with severe pain for the past 5 years. I am dying with the muscular pain every day. This creates suicidal thoughts in me and I had to live for my family. My sweet family consists of me, hubby and two little angels aged 5 and 7 years. I don’t have any support to run my family. I met my friend last week and was shocked to note that fibromyalgia is linked with breast cancer. She said that there is increased risk of cancer for patients with fibromyalgia especially for women with the risk of breast cancer. My breast size has increased rapidly now and I don’t feel any lump or tumor. I didn’t disclose this fact to my hubby as he is a softy guy and cannot tolerate with this fact. Can I get some input with regard to the link between fibromyalgia sufferers and breast cancer?

A. I was not aware of a link between fibromyalgia and breast cancer..I need to look into this a little b/c it was not a topic that I had heard before your question BUT the reason I wanted to answer you was b/c something else in your question jumped out at me...suicidal thought due to the pain you are suffering. I know it is terrible and trying to take care of your family with this condition is a strain on you BUT I urge you to talk with your doctor about your feelings and also any medications you are taking that could be known to increase these thoughts(yes, there are some out there!) Like you said you have a wonderful family and I would hate for these feeling to continue and you act upon them. PLEASE discuss with your doctor. This is a condition you will be dealing with for many more years to come and your children are small. B/C i have a 3 year old with me I know it is hard to care for them and somedays it is all you can do to make it through. I will keep you in my prayers and look int
