New on here

Just wanted to say hi as I've just joined. Im a 35yr old mum of two and i was diagnosed with fibromyalgia about 5yrs ago. as time goes on i seem to struggle more and more and everything seems to clash with my fibromyalgia. all Im taking is paroxetine and i can't take anti imflamortries or coding as they make me ill. sometimes i feel like Im going mad as its hard for anyone to understand xx

Welcome, you have definatly came to the right place, as we all understand. :)

Its so hard when you have kids, i have three girls and i used to be supermum. Not now.

There a quite a few people on here that cant take many tablets due to them making you ill. Maybe if you asked a question about tablets people will give you advice.

Hugs, kel xxxx


hi ya i've also only joined today, but have been reading blogs for a few weeks, so plucked up the courage to join. im nearly 46 and feel ive had fibro since my 30's but it was'nt until this year that i moved and found a new doctor who has sent me to a consultant, this has made me feel so much better, as i felt i was complaining about how i felt but nobody listerned, they just thought i was a hypo, even now most family and friends don't understand but at least i do and i'm getting some help, doesnt make the pain and tiredness go away but it has a name and its real.

nice to meet you both pam xxxxxxx




Welcome to Fibro Action Spurs

Welcome spurs8r,

Have been with the group a few weeks now. Was Diagnosed with Fibro around 6-7 years ago - but have been suffering well over 38 years. Am 50 now, and it does not get any easier that's for sure :-(

Gentle hugs,

Carol xx
