Hello every body
Just a post to introduce myself.

I am Peter,
Living in the north Midlands area.

I notice I am a bit of a rare species ie a man with fibro LOL

I have just been diagnosed with Fibro :-o on Friday at the GPs after extensive tests, Scans, and numerous visits to the GP I also have Ehlers-Danlos syndrome type 3 Hypermobility and osteoarthritis in my hips and Knees but not severe enough to explain the pain I suffer as there is pain in other parts of my body as well as the hips and Knees although the frequent dislocations of my hips is extremely painful. I had never heard of fibromyalgia before yesterday but having researched it I have found answers to other problems I have had for a long time ie lack of sleep, clumsyless and problems remembering things mostly like things to do etc. I am currently getting DLA as have been awarded it indefinitely due to the EDS. but I still am working being lucky enough to have a job working from home with very flexible hours. :-)
