Until a few days ago I thought I was going mad.
I've been in one type of pain or another for years and 14 months ago had to give up work as a self employed builder. I have neuralgia and sciatica down my left side and so many other fibro symptoms
chest , jaw, knee, elbow pain, stomach problems and so on. Severe depression and anxiety.
I have not yet been officially diagnosed but have just started seeing pain management and got
some information off a leaflet they gave me to read before my first appointment.
I have cried lots since reading posts and doing a fibro survey where I scored 16/9 . It feels as a great weight has been lifted as I now know I am not alone and was not going mad. I don't expect an easy journey now but knowing I am not alone is half the battle.
So thank you very much for making this site and good luck to you all just knowing you are there has made it an easier journey to bear.
