My name is Julie and I am newly diagnosed with fybromyalgia. I have so many questions but never thought of a single one when I was sat in front of the doctor!
Feeling a little shell shocked but at the same time as if the scattered jigsaw pieces I've been staring at for years have finally been put together and the bigger picture makes sense.
I suffer from headaches daily, my job involves sitting all day which I find uncomfortable. I swear I resemble c3po when I get up and move away from my desk! I get restless legs at night, my tendons regularly "pop" in my wrist, my toes seem to want to remove themselves from my feet at times (excruciating) and my hips just decide to freeze up at will. I'm constantly bloated and have indigestion whether I have eaten or not. And by 3pm I'm done and the best I can hope for is staying awake until I get home from work.
Oh the joys! Lol
Anyway, it's the tiredness I find the hardest to deal with, along with my recently acquired hand tremors, and I wondered if anyone has any useful tips to combat it?
I have blood tests on Tuesday to check b12, vitamin d and blood counts, is that normal?
I'm proud of this post, I wrote whole sentences without losing my train of thought! Go me!
