    Sorry to hear that Joan. Go to your gp and if they don't help ask for referral to a rheumatologist. Good luck.

    hi Joan

    A physio cannot diagnose Fibromyalgia. If you think you may have Fibromyalgia, I would suggest going back to your GP and asking him/her for a referral to a rheumatologist..

    Do you have other symptoms of any kind? Even if you think they are unrelated it is worth making a list and mentioning these to your GP so he can get a fuller picture.

    Thankyou for all the replies it really is encouraging having just joined.I know physio won't tell me but that's what he offers I think I need to go to somebody else.I have never taken alcohol in my life so that is not a problem.

    Thanks Again
