Hi everyone - I haven't officially had my diagnosis yet but my doctor is pretty sure this is what I have and have had for many years (I'm 51) but I just haven't put two and two together. I've gone from being able to run marathons and climb mountains (!!) to almost nothing. The big thing for me is joint pain and tiredness, I also get a little muddled which isn't nice. I'm sat at work at the moment - I get in early so I have to chance to try and sort myself out. My hips, hands and back are horrid today - constant ache - and I'm so tired. My hands are also tingling today which is annoying when I'm trying to type I keep making mistakes. Can anyone tell me - is it wise to tell your employers? I do get a bit fed up of living on painkillers. I'm already on Fluoxetine and that keeps me kind of level. Would love to hear from someone.
