I have not long joined the forum and have found it very helpfull.
I was just reading a post on support groups on FM. I was wondering if anyone knows of any groups in clackmannanshire! :) or is there anyone out there nearby to chat to? I often feel very misunderstood when it comes to FM. People just think I am ok and there is nothing really wrong with me! :roll: I am fine then all of a sudden I get pain. :cry:. would be nice to chat with someone who understands :wink:

Hi :wave:
I don't live in your area, I haven't found a help group near me but since I've found this forum I haven't felt so isolated. You can chat on here, we play games and be silly as well as offering advice, asking and answering questions. :D
When people ask me what fibromyalgia is I tell them it's chronic widespread pain and then give them a breakdown of the word - fibro means fibrous tissue such as ligaments and tendons, my means muscles and algia means pain. There's a lot more to it than that and for family and friends I was given a booklet at the hospital.
If you can't find any booklets you could print off the same info from the NHS website, this link should take you straight to the symptoms page.
link removed as it didn't work and wouldn't let you back on the site
Not everyone has the same symptoms but you will probably recognise some of them and can underline the ones that effect you. :hugs:
Take care

If you look at the top of this board (I've moved your topic into support groups) there are links to sites where you can find out if there is a support group in your area.
