Hi all just joined the site tonight so for all intents and purposes I'm a fibroaction virgin - try saying that when your tongue hurts lol. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia about 7 yrs ago and at first I managed it quiet well with paracetamol and if I'm honest a huge dose of skeptisicm in regards to the existence of such a condition. silly me eh!!!!

For the past 18 months fibromyalgia has been busy attacking me physically, mentally and emotionally and making sure that I never again doubt either its existence nor its widespread impact.

I just wanted to introduce myself to my fellow fibro suffers and hopefully come on here from time to time to get advice, info, support, sympathy, company and a wee bit o craic as we say in belfast.

Drop by and say hi next time your on
