    I am crying because it feels so good to talk to someone else with the same problem. My name is Barbara and I just got married in April and then find out I have this. I believe I have had it for years, I have IBS, acid reflux,artho, restless leg but i had different doctors for everything. Now i just see one and she is great, i am on a lot of meds. it is amazing that i can work but if i keep messing up i won't be here for much longer

    thanks

    Welcome to the board! It takes awhile to find out what helps each person, it's different for everyone. The best advice I can give is to educate yourself about the disease. I find new information and present it to my doctor almost every visit.

    Good luck,
    Kat

    to the board. I hope you find the info here as helpful as I have. The people here are wonderful. I've had FM for 30 some years, and CFS for almost 8, and even though I've done alot of research on my own, I'm still learning helpful things from people here who are kind enough to share what they have learned. In my book, this is the best place on the net for connection with good people who know what you're going through and truly care.

    ever since I first started coming here it has helped me greatly and I wish I could come here more often but I have to come to the public library to get on here anymore because I couldn't afford internet service anymore.

    I can't hardly wait till I can get my service back and come on here more so I can help people more.

    and welcome to our family. This is a great group. Everyone is helpful and friendly, and we have terrific moderators. Feel free to ask any questions. Many people are quite knowledgable about protocols that have worked for them...there is a wealth of information here that you probably won't get from doctors.

    We also have a lot of empathy as we all go through it. Many of us have multiple illnesses we are dealing with. I have FM, Crohn's, asthma, and osteoarthritis (related to the Crohn's). I am 50 married 20 years with two teenage kids and two dogs.

    I hope you have someone supportive in your life, hopefully your husband. It makes hard times easier.

    Welcome again and hope to see you here often.
