I was diagnosed with Fibro last month by my Rheumatologist. I visited my doctor 2 weeks ago to get my medication and on his notes he wrote Fibromyalgia/ME. I questioned the ME and he said very casually oh they are the same thing. I said I didn't know this and he said yes they are. This left me very shocked. I have since done research and posted on the Facebook Fibromyalgia UK site and ...

Rheumatologist app today

I have my first appointment to see the rheumatologist today although after much research (I know the doctor is going to love me) I have decided I don't think I do have fibro. I have symptoms of MS that aren't in the fibro list. But I guess the specialist will decide today. I am so nervous and I have no idea why.

Help finding a fibro friendly GP FINCHLEY

Do I just suffer then???

Been back and forwards to doctors over the past year, mainly with complete exhaustion. Had blood tests (again) last month which he wasn't happy with, so more last week, when I saw him yesterday he said that apart from my blood count being a bit low everything else had settled down so probably had had a virus. He also put my thyroxine dose down from 100mg a day to 75mg a day as he thought ...

What do I do now?

Hello everyone

I have been going to my GP for around 2 and a half years with really bad headaches, tingles in my arms and legs, sudden tiredness and what I can only call ditziness when I suddenly forget the word I want to use or can't make a decision. The GP after most of the 2 years said I had fibromyalgia. They referred me to a rheumatology consultant who seemed only to hear 'headache ...
