Hi Peeps,

I started feeling like this some years back and it just got worse. I thought I was falling to bits. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and was told it usually hits 80 women out of 100. I am one of the 20 men.

The hospital discharged me saying here is a leaflet and learn to live with it, because we can do nothing to help.

Upon finding this forum, I am so very surprised to see so many other fellow sufferers. When I try to explain to many people what it's like, I often get a strange look and often told....you look alright to me. Wow.....if they only knew what was felt inside.

That's enough about me as I bet many have it worse.

I wish everybody well....... :)

:welcome: to the forum.
I was told the same thing, read the leaflet and get your head around it, lucky for me i knew about it as my partner was DX with it 4 yrs earlier, he knew about it as his dad also has it.

I was DX 2 yrs ago and still getting new symptoms.
We just take it day by day.

Fibro has so many symptoms but i am sure you already know that bit, have a look around the forum, we have a mix of male/females on here so i am sure you will make friends.

Hi Denys and Shazq

Thank you both for your warm welcomes.

It's good that a forum like this exists to correspond with other sufferers. I often used to think I was weird, as the hospital gave me every test going and found nothing. I felt like a fraud and it seemed that nobody understood me.

Sooooooo THANKS..... :D

Hello and :welcome: You'll find you're in good company here. I think most of us have been made to feel the same over time with how we're treated and regarded. Hope you find some confort and suppoer, plus a lot of maddness on here :crazy: :crazy:
