Hi Carly, welcome to the forum. Every fibro sufferer is different, different levels of both pain and fatigue and other symptoms on top.

Your gp is right that it's good to know you're not alone. There are lots of support groups throughout the country which I think you will find useful. If you go to the website their is a section for support groups listings. If you can't find one local to you listed just drop me a private message and I'll check my lists.
