Diagnosed with fibromyalgia, it would be good to hear from people as a form of support and to support.

If you have a look you can find the info on the local support group... they should be able to help out with info.

Thanks for all the kind words of support. I'm trying my very hardest to remain positive, and at the sme time forget all about my recent GP visit. However, my brain refuses to stop stewing over everything, and I'm currently feeling like a complete lunatic!

I had my blood tests this morning, and had the 'misfortune' to see what the 'lovely' doctor had written about me: I quote, 'has decided she has Fibromyalgia'. This, obviously, did nothing to make me feel any better about things, as I believe my words were actually something along the lines of, 'I think I might possibly have Fibromyalgia, and would appreciate it if you'd be able to offer advice as to how I go about investigating this further'.

To make me feel even worse, I then discovered that said doctor has already retired, only goes in once a week, and is no longer my designated GP anyway, so if I hadn't addressed my letter concerning Narcolepsy admin stuff to her in the first place, I might instead be here writing glowing words about the wonderful, supportive doctor I'd just seen!!

Oh well, we'll see what happens with the blood tests, and the meantime I'm going to instruct my brain to just give it a rest, and do something more positive such as getting in touch with some local contacts. It turns out that the husband of one of the Accessibility people I saw today has FM, so gave me some leaflets and lots of empathy (plus a good amount of outrage about how I'd been treated, which helped immensely!).

OK, happy thoughts time...

Hi Sally,

So glad you got on so much better with your Thursday appt re accessibility - should make you realise you weren't at fault, if so you wouldn't have got on with these folk, and so glad they were able to help. You can make an appt with any of your GP practice doctors - see if you can find one who is ,ore sympathetic to long term conditions. If you could see a rheumatologist that would hopefully help a diagnosis too.

Good luck with your studies
