New, only just diagnosed and scared

Postby Mystic_Angel » Tue Aug 03, 2010 2:14 pm

Hi, my name is Cheryl and I'm 23. After 4 years of pain and misery I was finally diagnosed yesterday. The diagnosis came completely out of the blue as no one had ever mentioned before that FM could be what I was suffering from. It's nice to finally know an actual name to what I have instead of being told it was all in my head, but on the other hand, all hope that I'd be "cured" is gone. The Dr, after an examination said " You have Fibromyalgia and there is no cure, you just have to learn to cope." He added more painkillers to the mix I was already on and told me he'd refer me to some pain physio or something and see me in 10 weeks. Other than that, I have to find everything out for myself. I just feel so lost :( :oops:

Hello and welcome! I am new to the forum today but not to FMs - it is a bit of a relief to get a diagnosis but not really helpful when there is not real sure, just management. It may take a while to find what works best for you but hang in there, with a supportive GP you should be able to try a variety of treatments. Physio works for some for me it was to painful and hydrotherapy worked better.
Look forward to chatting to you further xx

Thanks for the replys :D I'm slowly sifting through website after website trying to find out as much info as possible. Not very easy at the moment though seen as I can't remember the last time I slept for more than about 2 hours at a time, no matter how tired I am!

HI Cheryl and welcome,

Just to join everyone else and say don't be afraid and scared, you will find loads of answers here. Just remember this condition is quite individual, and we all have different pings and pangs every day. But everyone here has been through exactly where you are now and will always understand.

I just smiled when I read that you have had very little sleep, been there so long it is just not funny. But since i was diagnosed I have finally managed to get just a few more hours and with the info i have found here I have at least managed to feel a little more positive and to feel the huge relief of not facing being told ever again that it is all in my head.

You will do fine, and make some great new friends here,

:hugs:

Jena. :flowers:
