    I am new to the board and so glad I found this site. It is great to see such an active and informative forum.
    I have had FM for 21 years at least and was diagnosed about 15 years ago by rheumy. I believe that the FM was triggered by my total hysterectomy at age 35.
    My hubby retired @ 1 year ago and we moved from northern CA to NC. I have a great DR here(one of my main conerns about the move).I've been in a flare for about 4 months and really bored with it!

    Loved: Welcome to our little world, glad to see you found us, Obviously you have been dealing with FM for qyuite some time, but who knows hopefully we can help each other. The members here are supportive and kind.

    Sorry to here about your flare, I can relate... I recently moved to upstate western NY with two adolescent girls and the stress and just moving itself put me in a flare that began in August, I seem to be getting a handle on it now. So you have company in that respect.

    Again welcome...

    I've had so many tests over the years, i honestly can't remember them all. I did have a MRI years ago and I just had ekg and nuclear stress test. I had a huge immune panel done and they found I had slight gamma g. I'm not sure what the other test you mention is.
    Along with the FM, I have sleep apnea and hypothyroidism.
