Hello! A few weeks ago I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. There is a lot I don't know about this condition and I need to learn to live with it. Can anyone recomend some literature with plain and simple explanations? My main symptom is cronic fatigue and brain fog. Any recomendations on how to improve my condition? Also, is there any support group in Plymouth or surrounding areas that I could join to help understand the condition and how to live with it? Thank you! This are just my first steps to understading so I have a long way to go...

  • Hi I'm quite new to it too, I got a little book called Living with Fibromyalgia, have seen it mentioned on here too. It is easy to read with some tips and exercises, looks quite useful. x

  • Thank you! I'll look it up. x

  • Hiya! Thank you for your warm welcome and all the support! It has been very conforting to have all of you sharing knowledge and information. xx

  • Hi there

    First let me say we are only a click away if you need help or an ear to bend! Best thing is to go onto FM uk site, they have a full documentation of all literature , and a someone who has read it extensively !! It's all good

    Start with the books that are for learning to deal with Fibro, that way you will get most basic but helpful info without immediately being bombarded with it all.

    A little tip,,, keep a note pad & pen with you at all times to jot down anything you feel you need to know from either us guys here or your rheumatologist ! It's good to have a list of things that have been happening to you, & that you want to ask him.

    About groups FM uk will also be able to tell you where your nearest group is! Keep this in mind..... Some of the groups run a library with all the books you can borrow instead of buying them, it's a great idea and they will post books out to you to read.

    The FM site is also good for info.

    Hope this helps
