  • Hi Bally, are you new to the site ? If so, welcome ☺you have definitely come to the right place to have a moan & talk to others that understand what you are going through.

    Have you seen the mother site, where you will get a lot of info on Fibro.

    I'm sure one one the admins will post the links for you when they see your post. So if there is anything you want to say. Get it all out my friend, we all do lol & we do manage to have a giggle too.

    Peace, luv n light

  • Hi Bally121

    Welcome to the forum and it is wonderful to make your acquaintance. I have pasted you a link below to our mother site, FMA UK which hosts loads of useful Fibro information:

    I am so genuinely sorry to read of your suffering and struggling and I sincerely hope that you can find some relief to these issues. It may help to talk to your doctor about exactly how you are feeling and ascertain if they can tweak your medications to see if that helps?

    I want to genuinely wish you all the best of luck and please take care.

    All my hopes and dreams for you


  • Are you on medication for your thyroid disease ? If that is not well controlled it will have a huge impact on your other issues.

  • No not yet waiting for appointment frm hospital doctor says i have to see speacalist first

  • Your GP can start you on meds prior to seeing the Endo, unless he/she is unsure what to do. You will find once your thyroid is stabilised things will improve greatly.

  • Welcome Bally....You are now among friends who understand how awful we feel a lot of the time....Hope you had some sleep!
