Newly Diagnosed

Postby michael » Sat Feb 21, 2009 1:01 am

Hello I have just discovered this forum and would like to post my story
I have suffered with ostiaarthritis for many years and I have seen numerous Dr.s and Rhematolagists and Phycolagists over the years and I was always led to believe that i could"nt be expeiriancing the pain and general feeling of exuatsion that I was with ostiarthreitis. so eventualy I nearly gave up altogether thinking it must be all in my head and actualy I was just a worthless So and So untill my wife persuaded me to See a differant Dr. which I did and was refered straite away to a Rhematolagist that he new who diagnosed that I have Fibromyalgia-ME-as well as the more genaralised arthritis. I have only recently had this diagnosis and am pleased that there is someone else out there for me to be able to speak to as I have spent a long time out in the cold so to speak.

hello michael and wensday
your story sounds exactly like mine ive had fibro fro 40 years and only been diagnosed for about 8 years yes you do get to fell like you are useless and that you are a hypocondriac but isnt it good to know that its not in your head and to have a name put to it and to find others who are going through the same things i cant believe some of the things ive read on here it could be me saying them makes it a bit easier to live with nice to meet you

To you both, welcome
Yip we have all been where you are , it somehow seems better for the spirit to have a name for your condition.
Also to come on a forum and see that we all suffer, we all get frustrated, but we can also be daft and have a giggle.
See our Desert Island! - It just takes your mind of the pain for a few mins, and no harm to anyone else.
Hope you learn a lot, get some good advice and most of all enjoy your visits.

Hi Michael and welcome. I think what you are feeling is par for the course.I bet your head is spinning. But take heart because any questions you have can be answered here or you can be pointed in the right direction. Think of us as one big fibro family :lol:
