Well as I said new to this site but sadly had FMS since 1993 I found this from the nhs choices web site and was immediately drawn to reading the blog's. I have just returned from yet another hospital appt as usual feeling what's the point..., you know how it goes more tests on the way. I do now have problems with osteoarthritis(OA) as well so its a toss up with new pain is OA or FMS , I remember reading years ago that it often goes together so ok now I know the article was right mind you I do have a family history of OA. I would be interested to hear from anyone who has had hip replacements with FMS as I had my first one 3yrs ago and the other side is due to be done on of all days friday 13th April yep 9 days time, the first op went ok but had a bad effect on my fibro so hoping i don't lose any more ground having the left side done. ok look forward to hearing from anyone bye..
