I was only diagnosed with FMS last year which had the effect of making me spiral down into depression, but a year on I am coping a lot better. My biggest problem was that as I did not exercise due to the pain. I put on far too much weight which added to the pain! I then had a TIA ( mini stroke) which scared me big time.
I am now dieting and exercising as best as I can. I also have a better outlook on life. I refuse to let FMS get me down.
