Fibromyalgia Action UK

new too

Hi folks,

Diagnosed with fibro about 6 months ago. Although my doctors believe I've had it for at least 30 years, just not to this degree.

I'm a sports nut(American sorry) lol. Used to love playing anything, now I walk with a stick and am always in so much pain. The pain I feel shot up from always being at a 3, to now being at from a 7 to 10. Still employed as a Trainer, for a very large fuel company, but I haven't worked for about 14 months. No money coming in from them any more. On benefits and feel really depressed about that.

A Specialist early on was convinced I had Lupus. Went through 3 months of useless tests.

Only good thing going on for me now is my partner, of 12 years. She's been at my side and so supportive...

It's taken me about 45 minutes to type this, might be a world record! I'll say bye for now. I'll be reading all of the blogs, makes me feel a part of something, but can't promise any more responses. I'm just too slow and hurting.

Could be worse,
