Do I have fibromyalgia?

Hey all

Long story short, had depression for years (now 28) so put all the other symptoms down to that, now starting to think it's more than that.

Stiff joints/muscles

Aching muscles, especially neck.

Headaches with sometimes nausea

Sleep problems - can sleep 20+ hours and still feel tired

Extreme fatigue

Acid reflux and irritable Bowels

Sore muscles on certain points of body when touched


All got worse since a extra stressful time

Also my mum has suffered with this for a number of years..

Just looking for help before I go to the doctors..

Thanks :)

Not much doubt really. Whether you get an instant confirmation remains to be seen. Some Dr.s better than others as in informed and open minded. Some patients take years struggling to be taken seriously or get a diagnosis. Do you have the same Dr. as your Mum, or are they any good?


Hi Nuneatonash

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 have pasted for you below a link to our mother site, FMA UK which hosts loads of useful Fibro information:

As tulips123 says it really sounds like Fibro to me as well. However, there are tests for other medical conditions that need to be performed first just to rule these other conditions out of the equation. It may help speed up the process if you ask your GP for a referral to Rheumatology.

I want to sincerely wish you all the best of luck and please take care of yourself my friend.

All my hopes and dreams for you
