Hello Rachel

:welcome:

I'm not sure if anyone truely comes to terms with a long term illness like FM, but there are plenty of friendly people on this site that are willing to try and answer any queries you might have!

The best advice I've been given is to take each day as it comes. Pacing ourselves is an important skill to learn - it's all about listening to your body and knowing what you can/can't do.

Try using the search box to have a look around the forum and ifyou have any specific queries there's always someone around to help!

Lucy.

:welcome: to the family Rachel :wave: :wave: :wave:

There is lots of info and advice on here, so having a bit of a look and a read as you find your way around might be something to do. As well as tips and suggestions, with you being so very recently dx'd, you may find some answers to questions you have whirling around your head.

As Lucy has said, taking each day as it comes is quite often how we deal with things. Learning to listen to your body is also important, esp when it comes to finding what your capabilities are as you try to find your right level of pacing.

Anything you're wondering about, just post and someone will :penguin: :penguin: :penguin: :penguin: along with a reply for you :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing:

Hi,

Thanks for your kind replies,

I haven't given alot of information about myself, at the time I wrote the post I was still upset, I had been in this pain and discomfort since I was 10 years old so that will be over 15 years and everytime I had gone back to the doctors all they did were blood test and painkillers I was even told that I was depressed I never took any any anti depressents because I refused to believe it,
I have loads of questions like does certain foods cause the pain to be worse, I was tild that exercise can help but just walking about the house can be painful is there anything I can do or any help
