Hi *waves*

Postby BellaLuna » Sat Jan 22, 2011 11:37 pm

Hi everyone, my name's Becky, I'm a 28 yr old freelance writer/editor from Somerset UK and have just been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia so thought I'd look for a friendly froum to learn more and chat with others who suffer with it.

To cut a long story short I suffered two major traumas in my life a few years ago (having a stillbirth and losing my dad to cancer in the space of about 6 months) and docs think that stress probably triggered this.

I was originally sent to the consultants/rheumy's with suspected Lupus but a year down the line I finally have an official fibromyalgia diagnosis along with various other underlying issues, corrective tissue etc.

I suffer a lot with the fatigue side of things, pain to the touch, even the slightest touch just feels really painfull some days. Restless legs, muscle spasams and loads more which I'm sure i'll chip in about in various discussions here.

Hope to get to know you all!

My facebook link is also in my signature below if anyone wants to stay in touch via that. It would be good to meet people who actualy understand what I'm going on about lol.

Becky x

Hi Becky, I have only recently joined this forum and it has made a big difference to me in a short time.

Sometimes it helps just to be able to write something down and it's a bonus to have the understanding that others try to have when asking how we are.

Keep in touch :D

hi becky,wecolme to the forum.i have only been a member for a few months and have found it to be brilliant.just nice to talk to others who understand what it is all about.my fm was triggered by a trauma(a fall) and talkingto family members and specialists it also could be heredity.i was 34 when it started and have had it for 6 yrs now.like you said i find the fatigue hard to manage as well as the pain on top.luckily i am on medication which helps abit.i keep a few sheep in order to have an interest and keep depression at abay.this also makes you get up out of the chair and get out of the house.some days(most)i think god i`ve got to go out but when i am out i think this is good, looking at the sheep looking happy know they have been fed.well i hope things get better for you.take care,efrem :D
