Got diagnosis over a year ago now, thought I was going to be told that I had onset of arthritis ........... specialist told me I had all symptoms of fibromyalgia - didn't fully grasp what that meant / would entail at time ! I must confess to being mildy relieved when told NOT arthritic, but the symptoms of fibro are every bit as crippling, painful and REAL ! As you fellow sufferers will know, it takes some living with and because no outward/visible signs to on-lookers, not a very believable ailment ! It's no joke though, having almost continual pain in any area of your body at any given time, disturbed sleep becomes the " norm " and wanting to curl up in a ball and sleep - because it is sooo comforting ! I genuinely thought my body was literally disintigrating below my skin with fibro, it just felt like I was falling apart - body feels so weak and sore, hard to explain but real to feel ! Wrong choice of words I know, but comforting to know that there are fellow sufferers out there, who understand and can identify with what I am saying here ..............
