Heya, i'm new here. From the Midlands. I haven't actually been formally diagnosed but know this is what i have. I thought i'd join because i'm new to this and finding it very hard. Just recently my symptoms have got very bad and i'm also 23 weeks pregnant. I wanted to ask does anyone wear support bands and are they beneficial long term as i have been wearing them on my knees, wrists and ankles because of the joint pain. I am seeing my doctor tomorrow but know it maybe a while until i get a firm diagnosis. I have really struggled today and the pain in the muscles in my back is unbearable. Would just like to find out more and talk to others with the condition. Right now i can't see how anybody copes with this x :dunno:
