This is my first visit to a group like this. So it's all new to me!
I have been suffering for almost 20 years with pains.....
It started with pains in my right hand. The pains got severe as the weeks went by. I went to see my GP and he said it signs of R.S.I. so he put me on anti-inflammatory remedies. Pains were getting worse and so I returned back to my GP and he just changed my medication. I started to get swelling in my hands and the pains not getting any better. I soon started to experience shooting pains in my arms. To cut a long story short, I was a back to my GP almost every week. I then seeked private treatments over the years which included visiting a chiropractor, relexologist, accupuncturist, herbalist........you name it I had gone through the mill and back. Up-to-date I now have pains all over the body and it finally got diagonised as Fibromyalgia.
I feel as the people closest to me don't understand my pains, as they see me doing my day to day duties. I am a mother of two boys, ages seventeen and ten. I have a husband who does not want to see me in pain but does not know how to comfort me either. I have support with the minor things in life but family don't feel what I feel? Lately I have been feeling rather lonely as I don't know who to chat to !
So I am counting on my friends out there for support !!
