    HI. my name is Dana and I am 23. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia over 4 years ago after a bad car crash. I am not sure what questions I have as of now, but I just wanted to talk. I have been pretty bad lately, and just wanted reassurance that I am not alone. I have every symptom and I am overwhelmed and I feel like I am getting worse.

    I'm new here too, just found this place late last night, but I've learned so much already. The best thing I've learned is that I am not alone! After 11 yrs of doctors that don't understand FM, docs that treat you like a hypochondriac, it is so nice to talk to people who understand. I have most if not all of the symptoms, so if you have any questions, just fire away. I may not have the answers, but I certainly have the sympathy. :eek:) Hang in there, sweetpotato!

    Hugs, moonflowercat
