    I am 47 years old and believe I have had FMS most of my life, although I wasn't diagnosed until five years ago. I also have endo, IBS, IC, low thyroid.

    I hope you find this website to be as supportive and helpful as I have. I found this website several years ago and I don't think I would be doing as well as I am mentally or physically if I didn't have the people here to talk to.

    I am fairly new here too and everyone has been very nice.
    I am happy to be here too, it is the first place in a long time that I feel like I fit in. We can take about all your weird FM symptoms (and nobody thinks you are nuts!), and stresses about finding a doctor, or whatever questions you might have and everyone understands.

    Maybe you could fill out your Profile and tell us more about yourself. If you click on our name beside our posts you can see our profiles (if we have filled them in).

    hugs Marion (Redwillow)

    Welcome to the board!

    The best recommendation I could ever make is this: educate yourself about your disease continually. Many of us find we have to be our own advocates in the management of our disease(s).

    Good luck,
    Kat

    Always ask questions. That's how we learn and there is usually someone on here who can relate to any situation you could possibly bring up.

    Fill out your profile so we'll know more about you. I have a wonderful doctor that I highly recommend to anyone within driving distance of Chattanooga.

    Hi Homesheba, and Welcome,

    I am a newbe myself and I have to tell you that everyone here has been so Wonderful to me. They have helped with questions and have posted helpful information as well.

    I have only been Dx'd for a few weeks, but the doctor that Dx'd me (a new doctor at my clinic) speculates that I have had it for 8 years now and have been misdiagnosed all along. I have had all the signs and symptoms, and as you already know anyone with this desease trys to get along as best they can until you just can't take it anymore, especially when your told that you look fine and all your blood work comes back normal. About 2 years ago I was Dx'd with degenerative Disk Displysia and Spinal Stenosis, and had to have ESI shots in my spinal cloumn to releave my spine from being pinched. It has helped as now I can feel my legs.

    I see that you have had this Desease now for 15 years..how are you dealing with it, and what kind of medications do you take?

    Anytime you need to unload your problems or even need to ask questions, this is the place to do it.

    Welcome again Homesheba, and I hope that you find this site as helpful as I do.

    God Bless and Take Care,

    Noahvale--Kathy
