Hello to all,
I dont really know what to write, or even where to start.
I have suffered with back problems for nearly 8 years now. I have wear and tear on the lower discs and ball joints of my spine plue scholiosis. I was also diagnosed as having and underactive thyroid about 4 years ago. This in itself was bad enough, taking time of work when I couldnt move, getting upset because my hair wouldnt go where I wanted it to.
Then last year things started to get a little worse. I started suffering with pain in my neck and shoulders, headaches all the time, pain in my upper back when sitting for more the 10 minutes. I thought the problem in my lower back had moved upwards aswell, but an MRI scan ruled that out. I was also suffering with severe period pains, the worst restless leg syndrome and palpatations. The worst was to come when I woke one morning and couldnt hold my head up never mind lift the kettle to make a cup of tea. I could bearly raise my arm. So debilitating.
I went to the docs and saw my pain management consultant on many of an occasion and just kept getting fobbed off, offered injections and tablets. The period problem I was told its cause of my age and its normal, how is being on all fours, in intense pain, kind of like late stage contractions, plus other not so nice bits normal??????? I think not.
It was an occupational health referral that put me onto Fibromyalgia and by god she was right, I was diagnosed 4 months ago. I dont really know what to expect from this. I suppose just knowing that Im not alone helps a great deal. I hope I can help others too.
Any advice peeps have would be appreciated and similarly would love to hear from anyone in the Hampshire area.
Big hugs to all and thanks for reading this.

Hi Bekki!

Where in Hants are you? There's a Winchester group and I'm often down that way on Fibro work related stuff. I used to live near Lymington but now live just north of Hants in Newbury.

Thanks for your messages.

Linzworld I live in Fareham in Hampshire.

Winchester I think night be just a little far for me to travel, but I understand that they are setting up a group in Portsmouth so will definately be joining that group. Thank you so much for thinking of me though, I really appreciate it.

Bekki
