Hello! I feel like a fraud...!

Postby caterpillar » Wed Jun 15, 2011 8:47 pm

Hi everyone.

Well. Where to start?

I was recently diagnosed with a vitamin D deficiency, and from there, after telling my GP my symptoms, she thinks I may have fibromylagia. I however, although I do feel RUBBISH most days, am not sure, as when I read on websites like this one, everyone else seems to be in a much worse way than me?

For the past at least 6 months, I have had pains all over my body, my joints get sore easily, and I have areas that feel like pulled muscles but they have felt like that since January. :( I also go numb or tingly very easily.

My sleep pattern is bizarre, I spend all my time feeling shattered yet it takes me HOURS to fall asleep.

My Mum had fibro so I know a little about it, she used to suffer terribly with her knees and often had to come home from work for a sleep. I don't feel that bad?

I have always suffered from IBS, Endometriosis and frequent urination :oops: and I have put on 3stone over the past 3 years, which I cannot shed. :( I suffered 2 big traumas within three years of each other in the last seven years as well.

I was thinking back recently to when I was in my early twenties (I'm 30 now) and I used to be gluten-free and I didn't have this fatigue and aches and pains so I am starting back on that... But am interested to hear from others on your opinions... Obviously if you need more detail ask because I've probably left a lot of symptoms out!

:wave: caterpillar :welcome: to the forum :chicken-dance:

There's no need to feel like a fraud as FM affects us all so diversely. For example I am probably more mobile than some people, but I've been affected more psychologically and emotionally than others might have been. I can't speak for what you've found on other websites/forums as I only use this one. I had a look at others, but with how things seemed to read, I didn't think they were the right places for me.

Just because you don't feel bad every day, that doesn't mean you don't have FM, it could be that you manage to have some more decent days than others.


There is a lot of info and advice on here that you might find helpful :cup1: :cup1: :cup1:

Hi caterpillar and :welcome: to the forum, I agree completely with Fluppypuffy, how do you know that you aren't in just the same amount of pain as me but just handle it better, :dunno: :dunno: :dunno: There is no way to measure the amount of pain someone is in its all a perception I dont walk well but that doesn't mean I am worse than you, just that at this moment it is affecting me differently to you :hugs: :hugs: :hugs: :hugs: :hugs: :hugs: :flowers: :flowers: :flowers:

Hi everyone, thought I would post a little update...

I have been officially diagnosed now by my doctor. I didn't have the pressure point test, however she contacted Rheumatology (sp) and they are confident from my symptoms that I have it.

She also said my inflammatory levels are a little high, and they want to check my bloods again in a couple of months to check there's nothing more sinister going on.

So that's it then! It's official! Just got to get my head round it all now :shock:
