  • Hi Amanda222

    I sincerely hope that you are feeling as well as you possibly can be today? Welcome to the forum and it is wonderful to make your acquaintance. I am so genuinely sorry to read about your health issues and I want to sincerely wish you all the best of luck.

    I have pasted you a link to our mother site FMA UK which hosts loads of useful information about Fibro:

    Your GP has expressed what some GP's and Consultants believe about Fibro, and when other members say their GP has said this, I always advise them to find a new GP!

    All my hopes and dreams for you

  • Please do not worry about having a moan, it is what we are here for. Please take care of yourself.

    All my hopes and dreams for you

  • Hi, As Ken says ... Find a new GP! Fibromyalgia is not all in your head. Ignorance on his part and if he/she can't be bothered maintaining current levels of professional development then I would not trust him/her with your life! Just out of interest have you checked your symptoms against b12 deficiency on the pernicious anaemia society website. Might be worth a look. Jax💕

  • Hi had Thankyou for your reply I agree with you do I just type pernicious anaemia from this website new to it all x

    Hi, There is a forum on health unlocked too which is linked to the above website. You can join just as you have done with the fibromyalgia one 🙂
