Hey all

I am new to this forum. I have previously been posting on the lupus forum as i havent had a diagnosis of anything yet. All i know is i have had a positive ana titer three times but nothing more specific has shown up in my blood.

Fibromyalgia has been mentioned a few times but to be honest I have NO idea what is wrong with me. One minute I was holidaying in India last year and then since the beginning of this year I have been on constant pain, muscle aches, unable to walk up stairs or hills, pains in fingers, feet, knees, and i constantly feel nauseous :(

To say it has taken over my year would be an understatement.

But I have just come on here to do a bit of research really and whatever is wrong with me, I am sure I will find some helpful coping tips.

Feel free to say hellooooo

Bye for now :)

Hi Im fairly new to this site myself however i have been diagnosed with Fibro as well as other things but it is so frustrating not having and answer, not that you ever want something you just want a name so you can start to deal with it. Only tip i can give just keep going back to the doctors and don't settle for a i don't know attitude from a doctor. You know your body, but your doing the best thing by researching but it can't be a bad thing so don't do to much it's a fine balance.

I do hope you get answers soon honey or if their are miracles out their you get back to full health xxxx


Hi there ,i to had been posting on the lupus site looking for some answers for my daughter who was diagnosed for a year with systemic lupus then had her dxs changed for 4 days to vasculitis then to ,we haven't got a clue.

So i know where you are coming from.

I was dxd with fibro. by my g.p after eliminating other stuff,my gp gave me pregablin which i take 75mg three times a day,and i feel soooooooooo much better.

The first time in years that i can sleep as i don't ache all night.
