The first consultant informed my GP that they had to refer me to rheumatoid because i was unwell or i don't think she would have done. The RA Consultant sat and talked to me, did a few checks and said 'i know exactly what you have got'. When i went back to see my GP after seeing the RA consultant with the diagnosis of FM she just looked at me like she was a fish or maybe i was speaking a language she didn't understand. It took 8 yrs. The FM affects me everywhere, this morning i couldn't walk back upstairs. The things is, if you are unwell don't give up.
