I was finally diagnosed with Fibro in Nov last year & was so relieved to have a diagnosis after 18 months of complete hell - my gp was useless as blamed everything, and still does, on my back injury( I have torn discs in my lower back due to heavy lifting at work).
I am now attending a pain clinic every 8 weeks and see a lovely consultant pharmacist who believes very much that Fibro exists and is trying to help me with my pain control; however it is the fatigue that cripples me and this is where my friends and family don't understand this syndrome. I've read a few posts on here before adding something and am relieved to find that a lot of us have similar experiences. Most days I am made to feel like a hypochondriac despite managing to drag myself out of bed and go to work. My boss has been helpful in that she allows me to complete my weekly shifts over more days however I know she is a non-believer of Fibro and makes me feel very uncomfortable by way of her attitude towards Fibro. I do of course get the usual comments of "you look alright" but this is only through sheer determination not to let this syndrome beat me.
Anyway I could talk for hours about my symptoms - it's good to know that I will get a positive response on here as we are all going through the same hell. My guy at the pain clinic recommended coming onto a forum and I'm glad I've finally took that step.
Thankyou for reading my post - I'm glad I've now got somewhere to come and discuss my Fibro.
Hope you're all 'well' today.
