This is my first time on this site and it's so reassuring to read I am not the only one suffering this horrible condition.
It took me two years to finally get a diagnosis. I have had help from rheumatologist ,physio, hydrotherapy pool, living life nhs 24, my G.P. I was most impressed with my chronic pain team, they have given me so much support with finding the drugs that actually help which has taken a long time. They call me every few months to see how I am and suggest other/new techniques and advice. The physio help working on gaining my core strength which I lost completely. I feel stronger in general. The hydro pool was amazing when I was just starting the exercises.
My mood can be really low at times, a very distressing part of fibromyalgia, c.b.t therapy helps get your head round things and learn coping skills. I'm off my antidepressants now and pacing myself better.
