just to say hi

Hi my name is funny bone and I have not used this site before, one of my friends who has used your site before told me to try, so I am a novice, I have had fibro for the last 3&1/2 years, it is the worst thing I have ever had to deal with :yikes: I have constant pain and stiffness every where, I walk with a funny kind of limp, as I get pain and spasms in both feet and ankles, never mind, I have had to stop working as it was getting to hard to cope with work and having time off for ill health, so I am waiting to be retired from work from my rheumatologist , it is a long drawn out process but there is not a lot I can do about it, I look forward to being able to talk to people who understand and don't need you to tell them what it is when you talk to them :crazy: I am pleased I have registered and have now got on, speak to you all soon. :-)

Hi Funny Bone,

My name is Lindy, and I'm new here myself. I was diagnosed in April of this year, by a rheumatologist, but have been living with the symptoms for a long time.
It's frustrating when people have little or no understanding of what this condition is. When I was diagnosed, my line manager asked "is there anything we can do to help?". I asked her if she knew what fibromyalgia was, and she said she'd heard of it, but didn't really know about it. So I politely requested that she educate herself about it, in order for her to understand the condition. Also referred me to OH.
I totally agree, it's an awful condition to have and the pain can be horrendous.
I'm requesting an elbow crutch from my physio on my next appointment, as I feel I could be doing with a bit of support on the more difficult days, when I waddle and shoogle :-)
I've recently commenced on Gabapentin, and I do feel a bit of a difference, so will see how that goes.

Much Love to you, Funny Bone.
Lindy x
