just joined Hi to you all

I have just found this web site and i find is amazing and also comforting. I was diagnosed last year although i have had it some 5 to 6 years. I thought i was going made. The more i went to the doctors the more they fobbed me of. You have coccydynia that why you are in pain. I have had that since i was 15 years old! You have S. V. T. That's why you have chest pain and feel faint. I have had that all my life! Its your sciatica playing up. NO i have had that for ages too...WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME!!

They even said i was addicted to pain killers?

At this stage i was beginning to think it must all be in my head. I even began to doubt myself. Am i going mad?

Then after years of different tests and adding more and more labels to my condition ( arthritis too ) they finally told me it was FB . At last someone believed me that it was not all in my head.
