Hey everyone, I was diagnosed with Fibro last year. I also have arthritis in my shoulders, back and hips, I'm waiting to see a Senior Physiotherapist who will decide whether to send me to a Rheumatologist or not! I live with my 3 kids age 11, 14 & 19. Apart from the pain one of the worst things for me is that I just can't sleep, I can count on the fingers of one hand the amount of hours sleep I have had in the last week. I did try amytriptiline but that didn't help and I do not want to use sleeping tablets either, so I'm always tired! I'm on a vit d/calcium supplement as my levels are too low. I'm glad I found this site as no-one appreciates what we are going through like another sufferer. x
