Hi my name is Piperraymond, 58 years young, am a newbie, however, I have had a lot of surgery over the years partial gastrectomy, then my gall bladder removed. I was diagnosed with sarcoidosis which eventually went away or into remission. For the past 5 years I have had various test, xrays. With no diagnosis other than my ham strings were tight.(I am good at jokes as well) After my doc sent me to another hospital for a second opinion I have been diagnosed with Fibro. I could not believe the similarities with all the pain areas, lack of sleep, waking up with severe chest and back pains, my neck and shoulders also, severe headaches not forgetting the fatigue. I can now put a handle on my condition and try to reorganise my life to try and it will be trying to move on. Forum is good with plenty of info.
Thanks for being here for a newbie.

Hi and :welcome: to the forum :wave: I think it helps to be given a name for what is wrong and also people are becoming more aware of the condition (maybe slowly but I do believe we will get there) If you have any questions please just ask and we will do our best to help :-D :-D :-D :-D

Hi

Have you seen your gp about it Piper? just in case its not fibro related? It might be acid reflux or indigestion? its always best to see your gp if its new pain to you. :goodluck1:

:wave: :wave: and :welcome: to our FibroFamily PiperRaymond :wave: :wave:

Lots of helpful info and advice on here, hopefully there will be some useful bits that will help you with your reorganisation of things.

Depending on the cause of the pain you have around your chest and stomach areas, there may be things that can help ease, control it. As Shaz has said tho, a trip to see your GP might be necessary to fin out what is causing it and what treatment is needed to help improve things.

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