Hi to all you fellow suffers with fms. My name is Chris and im a virgin to all of this lol. i must be one of a few of you who are male with FMS.

i gave up full time work 4yrs ago with a well paid job as a Senior Architectural Technician based in York office for TATA Steel. i would spend 3hrs per day travelling to and from work, it was very hard on me.

My selfasteam got very low along with all the other associated problems with FMS. i wish you all well in your struggle with FMS and hope somebody somewhere finds that magic cure for us all.

Hi Chris and welcome aboard,You will find the more you ask questions and blog that we do have chaps on here.One in particular who name is Chorley,our little ray of sunshine.

I am so sorry to hear you had to give up a very good career because of this rotten thing.

And fully understand what you say about selfasteam.It must be really hard if you are a family man,but then hard no matter who you are.

You will find help,answes,compassion and at times a darn good laugh of here.So hope to hear more from you.Gentle Hugs as we say Butterfly54:-)


Hi Chris - lovely to meet you - I am new today too :-)


Hi Chris and welcome. This forum is a lifesaver ...full of info and day-to-day lives of its members. Butterfly54 is right about chorley...very entertaining...always good to have a laugh if you can. you can pour your heart out or just have a good moan...especially good if you're awake at 2 or 3 in the morning.

take care and gentle hugs
