NEWBIE

HI everybody,

I have recently been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, at last i have a name and treatment for the awful way i have been feeling for a long time. My Gp didn't want to know :( i was in so much pain i booked 4 appointments with him one day after another eventually he sent me to a rheumatologist who sympathised and diagnosed my fibro. So here i am curious as to what to do and support from fellow sufferers. I have been prescribed Tramadol and Nortriptyline which are helping and i am to see a pain management clinic. Today i am having a "flare up" and am sitting writing to you wearing thermals, gloves and a duvet as i cant get warm, i'm tired all the time also. So that's me i hope to hear from some of you and be able to chat when i have a problem or offer suggestions to fellow sufferers. Thank-you for your time :}

Hi, I have been on here for a while. you will find plenty of support on here. I am sat with heating full on, in front of a fan heater and still shivering. I have ME as well which can drop your core temperature. Its worth taking your temperature to see if you are feeling cold or if your core temperature has dropped. Welcome to the group and gentle hugs to you both

Welcome. I am also new but find it really wonderful to have people who speak the same language and have understanding about what I go through coz they also go through the same stuff and worse.

Hi I recently joined and have found this site very useful. Its great to know there are others out there that can have an understanding to what we all go through. Being positive and pacing yourself seems to be the answer with me but also try and keep warm even if you have to drink lots of hot drinks and have a hot water bottle. Soft hugs xxx

Hi to new members. I've not been on here most of the day. It's my day off so I went and had some 'therapy' called the Emmett Technique and happy to say I feel a little bit easier - but only a little bit, today was my first time.

It is a really great group..... :)
