If you can keep your positive attitude it will be one of your best tools in controlling fibro.

Hi there, i'm newly diagnosed too although I suspected it for a while. I read books from the library and went online looking for info too. If your gp will give you med certs, get a claim in for employment and support allowance. If he won't, ask to speak to the disability advisor at the jobcentre. Go to the government website, I think it's gov.uk but if you Google employment and support allowance it should bring itup.finding this site has been great for me. I'm not alone! But do try to relax because stress tightens muscles which increase s pain. I take amitriptyline to help me sleep and most nights it works well but, tonight, ky mind is like a hamster on a wheel! Be careful with pain relief drugs, it can take a while to find one that suits. I'm very sensitive to drugs so a lot of usual medication is out for me.keep your chin up and keep on asking your gp for help. Change gp if necessary. Whatever happens, I wish you well.
There are these three things that remain: faith, hope and love. And the greatest of these is LOVE.
