Apparently I have had fibro for more than 40 years, but about two years ago it got to the point where I finally got it confirmed, and had to retire from my business. About that time I had been on a Xmas cruise (no I'm not rich just saved for a long time!) and when I got back home I found that I had lost my balance and often looked like a drunk staggering about. I had thought it was just the difference you feel when stepping off the ship onto the shore but it has not gone away. I went to the GP and he carried out all sorts of tests but nothing was found, so that's how things were left. Is this a common thing with fibro that people recognise or is it something else that I should look into further? I am fed up with having to use a walking stick to get about. By the way when I turn over in bed (with great difficulty) it's like going to bed after a good night out and more than a few drinks, when you're sure the next time you turn over, it will be right over! I used to love a drink or two socially but haven't been able to partake for more than ten years or so because my eyes flare up and itch beyond belief, so it's just not worth it - pity but there you go!
