hi everyone.

after years of telling people there was something wrong with me, and two years battling neurologists and doctors, and everyone telling me it was a mental health condition, i have finally been told today by my rheumatologist that i have fibromyalgia. it is such a relief to actually know as i can now access support and knowledge from people who know much more than me like your good selves. i have been so scared for so long that i was going mad, that now i know i can start to adjust to life knowing what i am facing, if that makes sense...

i have been on 6 tramadol tablets a day and co-codomol, and they have been doing nothing for my pain, so it has been quite a frustrating time. i am now looking forward to being reffered to a pain clinic who can hopefully help me with something that helps better, and help me to learn to live with my condition.

i am looking forward to learning anything i can, and look forward to being on this journey with everyone here.

Carrie-Anne.
