Sometimes, when I see a doctor about some new symptom, I get told that I have to expect it at my age. I do try to explain that I was very agile and quite fit, BEFORE I went past 'Go' and collected Fibromyalgia and would not be 'average for my age' now if not for the Fibro. I need to know if Fibro is the culprit and NOT just have it ascribed to advancing years. I actually makes me reluctant to tell a doctor anything as if they put it down to age I get nowhere. I need to ensure it is just another symptom of Fibro not anything more sinister!
