Newly diagnosed says Hi

Postby Sarahjc27 » Sat Jun 04, 2016 11:16 pm

Hi everyone. I had a Rheumatologist confirm last week that I have FM, it felt like such a relief to know finally what was wrong with me, after 3 years of doctors telling me my symptoms were in my head. I feel quiet positive about things at the moment. Don't get me wrong I am having some really bad days but I'm determined not to give up on getting things back on track.

Hi and welcome. I was diagnosed after 2 years too at the beginning of May. Felt exactly the same way! I'm in constant state of fibro, are right now according to rheumatologist so trying to work on getting that turned around.

Hi and welcome to the forums :welcome:

It is a relief to finally be diagnosed, at least now your rheumatologist and GP can decide on a care plan now. Have a look around the site, asks any questions and we will try to answer.

Hi Sarah

New here myself. Was diagnosed last month, although have had symptoms for many years. Like yourself, it's good to have the diagnosis, as you can get help with treatment (hopefully)
I just take each day as it comes.

Take Care
