Hi I have just received my official diagnosis of Fibromyalgia. I am just about to start medication and my GP suggested I join this group.

Hi. Welcome. It’s a club nobody wants to join - but once you get in the water’s fine.

Loads of experts on here who know all about medication, exercise, pacing and everything else to help you cope with fibromyalgia. Sadly I’m not one - but I’m good at reassurance - it will take time but you will feel better.

My advice is to see it as a learning experience - keep an open mind and give it your best shot!

Best wishes xxx

What medication are you going to be taking? I have had my fibromyalgia diagnosis but having discussion on 10th May regarding the medication.I have recently had acupuncture. Which I find helpful.

Amitripyline (can't spell that sorry) and Duloxatine. I'm on my 1st prescription so early days yet x

You're very welcome to the forum. I've had a couple of decades experience should you wish any assistance.

Warm regards
