thought I might say hi

Postby somersethedge » Fri Dec 30, 2011 6:40 pm

so here goes... Hi

I am one of those rarer breed.... A male with Fibromyalgia :-) (or should that be :( ) :crazy:

I am also newly diagnosed sufferer (16th December)... Unlike some cases I have read about, it took my consultant a whole 5 minuets to diagnose it. Mind you it was made a lot easier in my case as I have had M.E. for the last 30 years, and the only real difference was the location of the aches and pains had moved to the "classic" Fibromyalgia locations and I had started to get the other tell tail signs like headaches, sweats, and IBS....

Once the New Year is here, my consultant and GP. suggests I start to try for a DLA and a Blue Badge as although I am self employed and work from home, I can no longer walk very far (due to the pain) and my O/H has to "look after" my medication due to the depression I suffer :yikes: .

Well there you go.... a very quick intro

BTW most people on the net tend to call me Somer so feel free to do likewise

That will teach me not to hit send so quickly next time......

I forgot to add that I am 52 (but more often than not feel 104 :-) ) and my real name is Nigel....
