hi i'm new

Postby keely » Wed Dec 07, 2005 4:24 pm

hi, i'm new to this site and to fibromyalgia! Just got diagnosed yesterday after changing my gp and a three month wait to see a rheumatologist.

Sounds like I've had it easy though compared to most fm sufferers

Any tips, advice or chats with people who understand would be most welcomed!!

hello Keely,
welcome to the 'club' lol...I don't often post, but after a very bad day, I had the most wonerful support from the people here.
I think we all understand fybromyalgia (until it throws something else at us, that is :? )
I'm sure that you'll learn a lot from this site, and if you have any questions, you only have to ask.
Take care,
Pammie x

hello.......sorry to hear you've had a bad day! (((hugs))))..
I'm actually in Peterborough and wouldn't advise anyone to live here! the best thing about it is the A1 out of here. :shock:
The villages around Cambridge and Huntingdon are much better so you should be ok there! lol..
Hope you have a better day tomorrow...
love Pammie x

GP's

Hi Keely,

Welcome to the site! sounds like your gp was a little like mine and unsympatheitc to fibro. You will find a lot of friendly and helpful people on here and plenty of info.

I was diagnosed in january but have had symptoms for nearly 9 years.
My gp didnt think i needed to see a rheumy, so i had to go private and it was he who diagnosed fibro. so i would have to say money well spent after all that time!

take care and hope your not in to much pain.

Hi Tony
thanks for your post,

It's so sad that the NHS keeps failing people and so many are forced to spend out and go private.

I'm glad you finally got the help you needed. I guess it's a battle we've got to keep fighting!

All the best

Keely
