Hi, I was diagnosed with fibro almost 10yrs ago now I've tried various forms of exercise as recommended by my gp and rheumatologist but always end up the same, extremely fatigued etc after only a few attempts ie swimming (and not very much of it). My younger sister as been diagnosed with ME in the last 12months. I was always under the impression there were not too many differences but after just reading an article on the difference between ME and FM I am a little confused and I am now wondering which I actually have! It says ME patients are exercise intolerant but that is just how I feel I am and from reading posts on here others also feel the same way! Is this why it now seems harder for us diagnosed with FM to actually convince DWP how we actually feel??? According to the article I read with FM you can work and live a normal life!!!!!!! I know this is not true!! The article I have read this on is the hummingbirds foundation for ME!!
Sorry for the rant can anyone please help me!!
