Morning I'm new!!

Postby Butterflywind » Sun May 15, 2011 11:19 am

:D Hello, on Friday i was diagnosed with FM. I have been 'suffering' with all the FM symptoms for years (after treatment for cancer). Unfortunately my GP just kept dishing out pain killers, antibiotics etc. This past 9 months have been a blur of appointments & tests at different hospitals. But at last on fri i saw a rheumy Dr who said i am a classic FM sufferer. (he'd actually seen me struggling my way to the clinic).
I'm happy that now i have a name for my problems but not happy that its taken over 10 years for a Dr to listen to me and one that had really read my notes.
Im very lucky to have an understanding husband but always feel that i am letting him and my family down. (ie house looks like a bombs hit it because i cant do housework) and am unable to organise anything incase i am having a real bad day . I have lost people who i thought were friends.
Any way i just thought i'd say Hi and hope that today is a 'good' day for you all

Hi Jane welcome,
I have not been dx, my gp is holding off test yet now as I have other medical probs that are causing more pain which need sorting first. That out the way she's going to start tests.
Sorry its taken so long for you, I hope your having a good day xxx

:wave: Jane :welcome: to the forum.

Sadly your route to finding out what was causing your various problems is fairly typical of what a lot of us have gone thru to get a dx :facepalm: :facepalm: And same with the loss of people we thought were friends. When you have something like FM, you quickly find out who your true friends are :dunno: :dunno: :dunno:

You're not on your own with not being able to do things that you like or want, same with the housework and the feeling that you're letting others down, but now you've found us, we'll try to help you as best we can :grouphug: :grouphug: :grouphug:

As motherelle has already said, we're quite nice on here, and only a little bit :crazy: :crazy: :crazy: :crazy: :crazy: :crazy: If you want to know anything, then just ask :grouphug:


If your dog doesn't like someone, then you probably shouldn't either

Hi butterwindfly :welcome: Mary here

I also waited for years before i found out what was wrong. Think it was about 15years and it was my daughter who told me there was a woman that worked with her who had same symptoms as me so i went back to drs and told her what i thought was wrong she sent me to a specialist he confirmed it. The first time i went to drs years ago he ask me if i knew.
how many people came to him with sore leg. Hopefully you will get help you need :goodluck2: :grouphug:
