Hello Anne welcome to our forum.
Its very quiet just now, but sometimes it goes like a fair.
So just keep posting all your questions and we will try and get you answers.
You dont know where to put yourself? Is that because of pain? or mentally you are mixed up?
This is a good forum and the mods are decent people, as are many of the posters, some of us have been here a long time.
I have suffered this for 15+ years now, so i have worn the t-shirt for some time, you have just been diagnosed eh
Thats a hard time, and getting the correct meds to help you, you may need to change them for a while till you get whats best for you, we are all different and it sometimes takes time to just get the right tablet and dozage.
So take care and just keep posting.
If you would like a one to one, then just pm one of the mods and im sure they will help you.
Welcome to the fibromyalgia club.

Hi

I already have morphine patches, tramadol, arcoxia, sulfasalazine and etc for the arthritis.

The problem at the moment is the aching muscles, fatigue, foggy head, cramps, lack of sleep and etc.

The FMS is just an addition to everything else!

Have had RA for 20 years, so not unaccustomed to pain.

The Rheumatologist has been brilliant all the way through and I got a diagnosis with no problem at all.

Myself i take tramadol, mobic, hbp tablets, amitrip - every day for my ME/Fibro - im afraid even fibro itself is very debilitating, pain, lack of sleep, cramps, foggy heads, migraines to list a few - maybe it would be a good idea to get in touch with gill or lisa or shaz - and ask them to gie you a few articles to look at.
That way you can eliminate what symptoms you have or dont have.
There are a few of us here who have ME/Fibro and our symptoms are a little different, so i wont try and help you here.
But please contact one of the mods and they will give you the correct information.
Sorry you have been diagnosed, but at least now you have a name for it, you know what you are fighting.
Rhu drs are usually the ones who are best at diagnosing you.
Have to go as i bed early - so just keep posting and you will be replies, its just very quiet just now, a lot ill and the weather and weekend dosent help.
Good luck with your postings
