I am new to this site. Signed up to an Anxiety site and was directed by one of their councilors to this site as I said I had spinal problems, osteo arthritis and fibromyalgia. Had it 12 years now and life is tuff at times and so get low and anxious as a result.
Took a long time to be diagnosed but at least I can put a name to this damn condition, I suppose you will all know the symtoms, joint, muscle, tendon pain all over 24/7 365 days of the year.
Can't get comfortable whether sitting, standing or lying, have to move position every few minutes.
Have tried all the various meds which have side affects so off the lot now apart from Paracetamol so have bad nights and hardly any sleep. If anyone has any advice, tips on the condition that help I would be pleased to hear.
I slipped a disc about 16 years ago and seemed to go down hill from that point.
I'm 66 and was a fairly active person but have slowly almost ground to a halt.
