Fibromyalgia Action UK

i was thinking about my diognosis

and i dont actually remember a defining moment when my GP said "you have definately got fibromyalgia", i was also diagnosed with hypothyroidism, had tests to back that up, but i have looked at all the symptoms for both and some of the ones for fibro are a bit muddled.i am in terrible pain getting around everyday, but not sure about the "pressure point" thing, i know some symptoms can be caused by both thyroidism and fibro so can see its a bit difficult, but i cant treat or help the fibro properly if it isnt fibro, am a bit foggy so hope it makes sense, i wasnt sure where to post this on here, or thyroid site, but any help i would be grateful. thanks, xx

thank you so much Jules and Diddle, i will definately do that, i need to know whats what. love and hugs to you both.xx


Hi susie,

I am a person who needs answers for everything and explainations etc..

Someone told me that i might never understand everything that is going on and having multiple things wrong i might never find out whats causing what.

I was devasted at the fact that i just couldnt tell, but now i have excepted the fact that i will not find out and it doesnt matter what the label is, its the symptoms that you need to get sorted if you can.

If that makes sense lol, i am so useless at explaining my self.

hugs, kel xxx


No Kel, i understand, its the fibro language i think , a bit muddled but we get there, thanks, love and

aw thanks for your kindness and reply, i know what you mean, i am finding it all very upsetting and over whelming, one minute , we think we will get better, then we realise we wont, i mean we will have better days,

but it sort of changes everything, apart from the pain, i am sorry you have other things wrong with you as well, i have copd, (lung disease)

your right though, at least we arent alone, i know we do feel it sometimes, but its good to know this site is here . look after yourself, sending love and hugs, Sue.xxxx
