hi im 29 and was diagnosed with fibromyalgia by my rheumotologist in feb 2011 just before she signed me off as her paitent. all i was handed was a booklet explaining the basics of this illness, i have done all my research online as my dr told me that fibromyalgia was just something the drs used when they couldn't explain my pains and other problems. (lovely i know) fms has greatly impacted my life i have limited mobility and constant and servere pain throughout my body. yet what worries me and my main reason for this blog is that every info site and dr/ nurse have told me that fms is not a degenerative illness!!! so i am left confused as i am getting worse and worse on a day to day basis and finding new symtoms, such as light, sound and smell sensitivity sensitive skin to the point of serverely painful to the touch these being the most recent. but most of all im finding that im suffering from serious mood swings i mean i am fine and then i can find myself in a murderous rage for no reason and this i do not understand has anyone suffered like this????
