I am newish here. I’m in my 30’s. I live in East Midlands, UK. I have multiple health issues, including severe fibromyalgia and back issues. I have most of the various symptoms one gets with fibromyalgia. Medication doesn’t work for me - only taking 5% off the problems. What I find worse about fibromyalgia (apart from the pain) is the fatigue, depression, muscle twitching and inability to loose weight.
And I find there’s a lot of ignorance on this disabilities. Because we look normal and push ourselves, most people think we hypochondriacs or we look OK. But in reality and even on a good day, we still feel absolutely crap.
I have social issues so I find it difficult to physically meet people in person. I can’t believe how fibromyalgia can affect someone like myself so young. It’s definitely a life changer. I wouldn’t wish it on anyone. And I find doctors bloody useless these days and they treat you like a drug addict when you want painkillers.
I would like to meet other like minded people especially in the central part of East Midlands. Anyone like to talk openly.
