Hi everyone, I'm new and just trying to get my head round my recent diagnosis and lifestyle changes like not being able to work consistently, socialise, swim and deal with all my weird symptoms, really bad nerve pain in my left hand and both feet. At the moment I've got very sore eyes, dry and feel like they've been poked, also bright lights, actually any light, is a nightmare and makes the pain flare up even worse. I've also noticed that my sense of smell is crazy! I've tried different meds but I don't think I can handle them so I'm going for anything that's natural and less side effects. At the moment I'm enjoying some physio which I'm having to pay for privately as the waiting list for me to get appointment at pain clinic will take me into September, just can't wait that long. Anyway, learning to stretch out the right way is helping and I am able to walk a decent distance. All helps to make me feel "normal" again, that's made me tearful because I'm beginning to forget who I was and now having to get used to this new Fibro me! Who knows what that will reveal! It's nice to meet you all and I look forward to many chats.
