Hiya, :?
Having had the worst six months of my life healthwise, I've been taken to hospital several times, each time with different symptoms. The doctors concluded i had a heart problems and have been treating me for a stroke for months and months as had numbness and general confusion. I'm also a lifelong asthmatic. Then I went to see a doctor, who was not the same person I normally saw, she referred me to the Critical Assessment Unit at the Hospital and the consultant there said something totally different. he thought I had arthritis in my breastbone. He sent me to a rheumatoligist. In the meantime I'd developed pains in my arms, and legs, I thought I was going mad, I felt so tired, and couldn't be bothered to do anything.. not my way at all..
Todaay was a revelation when the rheumatoligist thoroughly examined me, and chatted for a while finding out everything about me until he finally said, 'You've got fybromyalgia, I feel sure'
Thank god for that, it now has a name, which is a relief, but I'm worried as I don't know what to expect.
Having read a lot of your postings, I realise that I share the same symptoms that many of you describe, and that I'm not alone and imagining I am unwell.
I'd really like to make contact with someone else who knows about this illness who I can help me when I need some help in understanding it.
A little about me, I'm 61, live on Lower Nidderdale N Yorkshire, married to J.R who is disabled after a car accident, with two grown up sons and a fantastic grandchild who is three. Love dogs ( have two,) and all wildlife, and spend hours birdwatching as there are so many beautiful birds here on the Dales. Love music, and before I retired I was an editor of a music publication.

Hi Oldhippie and welcome :welcome:

Hope we can all help you to understand this illness well as much as any of us can.

I am sorry to hear of your trouble getting a diagnosis but like you said yourself at least it has a name.

If you have any questions just post them they is always someone who can help.

Moira :hugs:
