Hello everyone..not long joined this site on a recommendation. I have been very lucky to have been diagnosed with Fibro very early. I had been getting aches and pains and other fibro symptoms (though didn't know it at the time!) for probably the last 12 months with my right thigh causing me the most distress as it got to the point where I could not lay in bed on that side as I would be nearly in tears within 5 mins of laying on it! I went to my first diabetic check-up with the nurse and mentioned I was getting pains and that I was aware of neuropathy but she said it sounded like arthritis. Went to see my GP who did blood tests which were positive..had them done again and still positive so he referred me to a consultant who gave me a physical exam and took a history and furthermore diagnosed fibro. I'm waiting to hear about having a course of physio though I'm dreading the pain! I shall continue another time......
