I am new to FM - still not officially diagnosed, but pretty sure. I have a question about fatigue. I am always tired and often feel like there's part of me that just isn't 'here' - hard time making small talk. This sound alot like what you all describe. But I also have another kind of fatigue that I wonder if anyone has - I often don't have a lot of pain while I'm sitting down, but when I move (like climb stairs, walk a long way, etc) my knee area screams with fatigue and pain. I also often have a hard time holding my blow dryer because I feel muscle fatigue. Is this like FM? I was originally diagnosed with RA, then undiagnosed (never knew that could happen!) and am kind of in limbo with my GP, doing my own investigation - so the more I learn about how my symptoms fit FM or not, the more I can push my GP about actually trying to find out what this all is! THANK YOU for responses and for this site - I don't feel quite so alone in all this, knowing other people out there are struggling too.
