im quite new on here myself but everyone seems very friendly i have had problems for many years but it wasnt until my gp put them all together and sent me to the hospital that the rheumatism doctor said i had fibro and the arthritis was only in my knees he also said i have carple tunnel (not sure how to spell it) in my hands.
im not trying to see the consultasnt again as the tablets he recommended made me ill.
i have 2 dogs a colliex german shepherd and a boarder collie who are so loving and seem to understand when i need to rest and love to snuggle up with me
love p
keep smiling

Hi Debs,

Welcome to the site. It has been really helpful for me. I really needed justification that all this was not in my head! I also suffer migrains and headaches and I don't remember what it was like not to be tired. I am just glad I have a sense of humor or I think I'd be worse off. In the supermarket last week on a bad day, I knocked over a display and a sign then struggled to open my purse to get money out, the lady asked me if I needed help and all I could do was laugh! I am only 24 and I feel like I'm about 80. Exceptence of yourself it a big part of coping with this illness, and talking to people on this site has really helped me to accept myself, as I am not the only one. Hope to hear from you again.
