Hi everyone, I would like to introduce myself my name is Olly and I have just got a Fibromyalgia diagnosis.
I have tried to keep my chin up for the past few years. It started suddenly one day i was out walking with my husband planning to do a 5 mile hike when I suddenly was unable to carry on after only 100 yards. I felt very tired and my whole body was tender and painful. It was hard to explain to anyone how i felt, three weeks later i still was ill could barely get up before lunchtime, so I book an appointment at my surgery . Lots of blood test done but nothing showed up. I just about have every symptom on the Fibromyalgia checklist.
I think the worse thing of all was when my five year old twin granddaughter held my hand last week and asked me to run with her to catch up to her Granddad and her brother who had run on ahead. She said never mind Nana when you get better we will beat them! Bless her!
Anyway Does anyone live near me on the Isle of Man, I was hoping to join a local support group. Failing that would be very please to hear from anyone who would like to keep in touch exchange news stuff ideas about Fibromyalgia.
Thanks for listening Olly
