A rather shaky hello.

Postby xxfibeexx » Fri Jul 01, 2011 10:03 am

Hi,

I received a fibromyalgia diagnosis on Wednesday this week and it was rather a shock! Am now feeling relief at having a diagnosis and the more I read the more I realise how many symptoms I have had and do have. Am also feeling very scared, had a few tears. Glad to have found this site and to be able to read other people's experiences.

Thank you all.

Think having bad pain day, waking up with the sweats and trying to read up on everything send me into a bit of a wobble this morning. It is a bit weird going from, thinking I have something mechanical wrong with my back and that other aches and pains were because I was walking funny, to finding out I have this.

There is tons of info here and the forums look fabulous. Thank you for being so welcoming

take your time trying to absorb all the info Fi, if you find you have a specific question and cant find any info just ask, someone will hopefully be able to answer it for you eventually, sometimes answers can be a little slow coming due to bad days etc. but we tend to get there eventually :hugs: :hugs: :hugs: :hugs: :hugs: :hugs: :hugs:

Hi Fi,
I was diagnosed on Saturday (My rheumy works weekends ...NHS at its best) and I'm feeling the same as you. I always thought my aches and pains were due to the fact my pelvis is misaligned because of an issue with differing leg length. I suspect that this is the reason I've got FM, along with having lax-ligaments and numerous small traumas over the years. Having someone give me a diagnosis is a little surreal after all these years of being passed back and forth from GP to consultant to physio and then back again! I'm currently using crutches (and writst splints 'cos the crutches aggrivate my thumbs/wrists), so it's quite 'nice' to be able to say to people 'no I've not just been clumsy again, I have Fibromyalgia'. Good Luck with your future treatments, and keep posting ...I'm interested in how you get on!!
