Suspected of having Fibromyalgia.

Hey everyone,
I have no idea what I want to say. So I will just start off with... My name is Karev, I'm 25 years old. I recently saw a gentleman with the Musculoskeletal Service. He concluded that he is 90% sure I have Fibromyalgia. I'm now awaiting to receive a letter with an appointment with the Rheumatology Department of Charing Cross Hospital.
I have felt as if there is something not quite right for the last four years or so, since being involved in a pretty serious motorcycle accident.

Luckily, my girlfriend (who lives with me) is very supportive. As is my mother.

That's all for now :)

My name is Sarah, I'm 28. I've also not yet been diagnosed, but all symptoms point to me having fibro. I saw a consultant rheumatologist last week who was pretty sure I had it. They've got to rule other things out first though.
You're lucky to have a very supportive family, whatever the outcome of your diagnosis, knowing you've got that support will help so much.
Take care

Hi Sarah
Best of luck with your diagnosis. Yes, I'm very lucky to have a supportive girlfriend and a supportive mother. Her husband isn't supportive whatsoever, he thinks I'm a raving hypochondriac!

Still, I know what's going on in my own body!

Hope everything works out okay for you :)
