Hi all.

I'm new to this site. I'm on 2 other sites though.

My story started 20yrs ago.I'll give you all a brief story. I Ave had knee problem's for yrs had numerous ops on them (about 7 or 8 if I include arthroscopic ones) for only to be left with chronic pain and nothing can be done apart to manage the pain with pain killers and opiods. I also have shoulder pain after 2 ops on that, and back pain. AlSo suffer with feet ands lower leg pain. All of which my gp knows about we are trying to manage the pain which is damn hard as I'm constantly in pain, as I'm guessing all you guys are. Ive looked up things on here and Google and fell across a site on fibromyalgia after reading all the jargon,my body and it's pain have all what is described. I see is hard to make a diagnosis but I have all the symptoms I have wondered before about fibromyalgia before as my whole body hurts and feels bruised all the time. So I'm just wanting people to talk to on how you all manage, apart from meds as I take a good concoction on a daily basis.
