Hello - just been diagnosed...

Postby Janey303 » Sat May 21, 2011 7:48 pm

Hi I'm Jane i'm 39 married to Dave and have a gorgeous daughter called Rosie who is 5 and keeps me going. I was diagnosed yesterday with fibromyalgia although I've had symptoms for quite a while, I'm ashtmatic and I also have a condition called Dissociative Conversion Disorder which not many people have heard of, I have felt quite alone with this condition so it is good that there is support available for people with Fibromyalgia.

It would be nice to hear how other people cope with the pain and fatigue. Many thanks for reading this, Jane

Hi Jane and :welcome: to the forum, we all have different ways of coping as pain and fatigue is different in all of us, I personally use meds and heat for my pain and when the fatigue becomes overwhelming I try to rest up as much as possible. If you look around the site and look at some of the posts you'll find examples of what others do to cope. Look forward to getting to know you :hugs:

Hi Denys
Many thanks for your reply it's good to hear from you. I find heat really helps me too, I use those wheat sacks that go in the microwave they're good but are uncomfortable sometimes when I'm in a lot of pain. Am looking forward to getting to know you, thanks again Jane

Hello Jane :welcome: to the :crazy: :crazy: :crazy: world of FM :wave: :wave:

I was going to make a similar suggestion to Denys, altho we share a range of symptoms and problems, it seems to affect us all so personally and individually :facepalm: :facepalm:

There's a lot to take in and get used to when you're told you have FM, so if there's anything you want to know, just ask us as there's a lot of info, advice and support on here :grouphug: :hugs:

Hi Jane and welcome :welcome:

I to use heat to help with the pain as well as lots of meds and the occasional drink :wine: . My perfect combination is a hot bubble bath with candles, restful music and a vodka and coke oh and a small piece of chocolate. (heaven) !

You'l find whats best for you with trial and error and a few handy hints from your pals on the site. :grouphug:

Good luck.

Diane
