Hi,

I am Sarah, where to begin????

I was attacked leaving work just over two years ago resulting in an injury to my shoulder and neck! After two years of not knowing why I wasn't getting better and seeing several Consultants I was finally diagnosed with FM in November!

I am finding it really hard to get my head round the not getting better part as that is all I have wanted to hear for the last couple of years!

Having a really bad flare up at the minute and sleeping is a nightmare..no position is comfortable so any tips would be gratefully received!

xx

:welcome: to the forum Sarah. :wave:

Fibro takes take a while to get your head around, the forum has lots of info so have a read around and try to learn as much as you can so you know what you are up against.

Have you got a memory foam topper or memory mattress, they help to reduce the stiffness of the bones which it turns helps sleep.

Sleep is a big problem for a lot of fibro sufferers, we have lots of topics on it around the boards.

I bought a new mattress (not memory foam) but an orthopaedic Silentnight one and it is bloody uncomfortable! I will definitely have a look at a memory foam topper. Thanks for the tips! xx :-D

hi,

it can take a while to get your head round it and then you are still wondering if you have missed something or there might be something you can do to get rid of it, my came on after a crash and i kept thinking this and still do sometimes.

take care. :-)

Hi Sarah,

Welcome, I joined in January and am finding this forum a continuous sorce of help and support, empathy and most of all due to my isolation I feel like I have new friends. I was beaten badly over a four year period in my 20's now in my 40's and had lots of broken bones. I got the FM diagnosis last November but been I'll since 2008/2009.

I still am struggling with coming to terms with this. There is a good post from Shazy on the stages of grief and I am still in anger/denial. I have started to have good days again which at first are hard for me as when the bad day hits it hits me hard. But I am learning now that I need to expect this. There is are a multitude of people and stories on here and always someone to talk with. Xxx
