My name's Jo, I'm 29, and I got told in February that I've got fm. Kind of nice to have a name for what's wrong, but I'm dreading telling people in case they react badly. I know a lot of people who think ME and CFS are 'all in the head'.

Hello Jo :welcome: to the forum :wave:

Motherelle is right when she says it's their problem and not yours with the people who can't or won't try to understand when you explain what FM is and how it affects you. If you want to have another try at getting them to understand tho, you could show them this as it's a really good way of explaining how things are with FM.

If there's anything you want to know, just ask and we'll see what we can do to help you with it :hugs: :hugs: :hugs:

thanks guys. I actually showed my hubby the bit by Shazq yesterday, hit him quite hard I think to finally realise how I sometimes feel. Just told two of my closest friends, not sure quite what they think. Trouble is neither of them have heard of FM, so they didn't quite know what to say anyway!
I got diagnosed after months of complaining about exhaustion and pains, and one single blood test. Does that sound right? I saw a rheumatologist for my hands hurting (which was the start of the pains) a year ago and he diagnosed hypermobility as my thumbs are double jointed.

Hi and welcome

As the others have said theres lots of good information around and theres allways us mad lot on this group. If your having a bad day or worried about something there is always someone there to listen. Dont be scared by some posts and the extent of the symptoms mentioned as we are all different however it seems that over time we do get more symptoms.

Take one day as it comes and use the link " one for non believers with friends and work colleagues as it really does help.

Good Luck

Diane
