Another Newbie

Postby lolo73 » Thu Jan 10, 2013 12:33 am

For a long time I have suspected I have FM, but not one healthcare proffesional has suggested it, I have been through appointments for pain management, physio and chiropractor as well as regular GP visits and no one picked it up. I suggested it to my GP recently and after a load of tests he is in agreement and I have finally been refered to a specialist to try and get a management plan.

I am a bit tearful about the diagnoses, although I am also relieved I have something to tell people when they ask me what is wrong with me. The worst symptoms recently has been the Fibro fog and fatigue, last night I slept for 14 hours and woke up tired. Not great when you have 2 very young children who have just started primary school!

I come from a medical background so I have a fair idea what it is all about physically and I have been suffering for about 15 years, although the last 4 have been a lot worse, but it is the psychology of it all I am struggling with. My place in society has changed once again and not for the better. I was ill-health retired a few years ago at the age of 36, I just couldn't attend work, my pain was too bad and my concentration wasn't too good either.

The board is overwhelming, so full of information and support, I will gradually work my way through it and hopefully start absorbing some information. I need to tackle the benefits system, so that will be my first stop on the boards : :-?

:welcome: to the forum lolo :wave: :wave:

As you've found, there is a lot of info and advice on here, so take your time and find your way round as you have a look and a read. As well as info on here, organisations like CAB offer benefits advice and help, so may be able to give you an idea of what you could be eligible to claim.

Just ask about anything you're wondering about, and we'll try to help you with it :wave: :wave:
