Hi everyone,

I'm Kirsty from Gateshead, call me Kes. I'm nearly 35 with a 15yr old daughter and we live with my boyfriend of 7 years. We have a dog and two degus. I used to be quite active but now living in pyjamas more than living life. I don't have any close friends near by and my boyfriend tries but isn't great. I think he thinks that I embellish the pain. My Mum has MS, so she's coping with her illness too.

Anyway. I've always had a few pains here and there but nothing major until I was over 7 months pregnant. After having my daughter in 1998 the pain was getting worse. I was dx with Depression but still under investigations for the pain. I kept asking questions and getting referred here and there for many tests. In November 2008, I was sent to a Rheumatologist (I know I can't name professionals so I'll refer to him as Dr S) where he dx me with Hypermobility syndrome. Over the years I've been given many mis-dx, including CFS, meniéres and even IBS, all dx by my GP but none proven. With a gut feeling that it wasn't just HMS/E-DS, I asked to be referred back to rheumatology, but this time I wrote down all of my symptoms to give to Dr S. I also gave a copy to my GP. More tests and xrays! Then, in June 2013 I was finally dx with Fibromyalgia. The more I read about it, the more the jigsaw pieces fell into place. The depression, constant widespread pain, insomnia, tinnitus and of course lethargy were all connected. It's like reading about a week in my life. It all makes sense, for the first time in about 12 years.

Thanks for reading this.

:-)

Hi Kes, my name is Debra and i live in Jarrow so its lovely to meet someone local on here :) Like yourself ive been in pain with no accurate diagnosis for 12 years. After an mri on my neck ( specialist wasnt interested in other areas of pain as was only sent to her with neck pain) i was dx with OA with worn discs from C3 - C7. after that i was given physio which didnt help at all but aggravated not only my neck with the other joints in my body. For 12 years i felt like no one was listening to me until recently i was refered to the rheumy at Sunderland hospital who examined me and said he thinks its fibro. I hadnt heard of this before so did a bit of googling and came across this site and everything fell into place for me. i still waiting on my blood results coming back and my diagnosis letter from Dr C. Anyway, i wont ramble cos you know exactly what im going through lol. Feel free to message me any time even for a winge :) xx

:welcome: to our little pyjama party Kes :cow-wave: :cow-wave: :cow-wave:

Hopefully you'll find being part of our FibroFamily helpful and supportive. There is a lot of info and advice across the boards, as well as understanding and a bit of :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing: and :lol: :lol: :lol: when we can :cow-wave: :cow-wave: :cow-wave:

It's good to hear that things have started making some sense since you have had your FM dx. That constant wondering about things and not being able to answer those questions you have whirling around is so frustrating and wearing :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm:

Anything you want to know about, either have a bit of a looky at some of the posts and topics, use the Search function at the top right of each page, or ask about it, and we'll try to point you in the direction of a helpful answer :cow-wave: :cow-wave: :cow-wave:


If your dog doesn't like someone, then you probably shouldn't either
