diagnosed at last - relief in a way !!

Postby iain » Tue Apr 11, 2006 10:24 pm

ok i had my appointment with the specialist today and he confirmed i have fms .
he pressed on a point on my left shoulder near my neck and i thought i was going to blackout it was that painfull !!
that was about 10am this morning and i can still feel it tender even though he assured me it would go.
has anyone else experienced this when they got examined let me know please .
feel better for knowing now though ,seems weird but its a releif to be diagnosed after waiting so long
hey looks like i may become a regular visitor :lol:
regards iain

Yes and a big hello and welcome from me too Iain. I can tell you that even now I am careful about peeps touching me in the wrong places as yes its agony. I had a mate grab me the other day in fun and it was awful and took all that day for the pain to settle back down.

Now I know that I will deffo have to be careful as I am forgetful enough at the best of times so don't be at all surprised if I am confused over the names being so similar.

The sun has got his hat on, hip hip hip hip hooray!!!!

Hello Iain,
welcome to our mad house.
You've already met the really mad ones, I'm actually the only sane member of this forum. (and there's no small print)

As far as the names go, I suggest we tag a number onto some of them, we have IanR and Iain, Jane and Jayne....It gets a bit confuzzing, as if we fibro's need any help with that!

Have fun whilst you wander around the lunacy we call FMUK

As one of the few sane members and noted inventor of the helitankbazooka I would like to welcome you to the site. I often feel bruised even though there is no bruising when peeps have been messin with my tender points.

Don't worry, your normal in a fibro sort of way.

gonna have a think about my options
my mum is getting checked out soon as she has same symptons (she was diagnosed with rhumatoid arthritus a few years back)
ok ppl gonna go as my hands are killing me but i will check in again soon

Hi again Iain,
What job do you do?
If it's a health and safety issue I would see your advisor(H&S) to make sure that neither you nor anyone else can come to any harm by your being afected by your meds. They may be able to give you a less dangerous job.
Also you can speak to the disability advisor at the job centre if you are worried that your boss will say that you are no longer fit for the job as now you have a diagnosis you get some protection.
You may not be able to do the job that you are currently doing with your condition anyway( I hate to be a misery guts but this does get worse and you will need your meds eventually)
Sorry I'm not leaving a quippy funny post butysometimes we can be serious here..............it's just that it's not that often :shock:
