Sorry to hear you are all suffering, I have had fibromyalgia for 12 years now and believe it happened after my mum died, the doctor refered me to a consultant for Fibromyalgia, and he pressed 11 places on the body and if you have pain is a certain amount of them with not much pressure then you have it, Also I have been given Amitryptiline (cant spell it sorry) 10mg, which helps with the sleeping. I know I dont have it as bad as most people but I have the stiffness, brain fog, extreme tiredness and pain in most of my neck and back and top of legs but I have decided to do more exercise, building it up, yes i know it will be a vicious circle of doing it then hurting, but the pain eases slightly, just to give you some hope and anyone reading this, I decided to go to the NHS choices couch to 5k in 9 weeks, starts jogging with intervals, so at the beginning I couldnt even jog for 60 seconds but I have now just finished the 9 weeks and I can jog 4.88km, nearly there, and yes I do hurt alot afterwards but im sure it gets a little easier. Im not saying at all that you should all do this, because i know alot of people cant even get out of bed but just wanted to let you know what you can do if you wanted to. Also I find massages are good to for short term.
