Just been diagnosed :(

Postby Gromit » Tue Nov 22, 2011 11:28 am

Hi there,

I have just been diagnosed with Fibro - although I think that I have been suffering for at least 2 years. Its a relief to finally get a diagnosis - and not just feel like I am going mad all the time. I have been taking Tramadol for the pain (and Endometriosis which I have also been sufferin with) and my Dr has now put me on Flaoxetine (sp?) so we will see if this helps any.

I have been hovering on the board - I am not sure if I introduced myself before - but Hi again if I have :)

I have had to change my interests to fit in with the Fibro - I used to have horses, but thats had to stop - I now do a lot more crafty things (which I have always enjoyed) I am just starting to make my Christmas cards and I am knitting my mum a jumper for Christmas. Are any of you crafty?

I live with my Darling OH and my 2 step winkles, 3 fishes, a snake and a tortoise! :)

Thanks Ribbons - I will have a look. I am just relieved to know whats wrong with me. I sort of feel that now I know whats wrong I can learn to live with it (well thats the plan anyway)

I will see if I can find your card pictures and have a look - I have just started and made my first birthday card at the weekend!
