Hi all! I have been reading this site for a few weeks now and have replied to a couple posts. Thought it would be behooved of me to properly introduce myself. I have been diagnosed with FMS for about 2 years, although, I have had physical symptoms since I was 11. You know, the growing pains thing. Only thing was- I stopped growing when I was 11! I have pretty much been in denial and "ignoring" the pain as much as possible. Eat, Sleep & Work has been my life for the past several years! I finally decided enough is enough- do something! I would go to the Dr. and when he would ask me how I was doing I'd say the very polite "Fine". My husband suspected this and insisted on going with me to my appointment this spring. They ganged up on me! I received a lecture from my Dr. and a referral to a neuro "just in case" to rule out MS. Everything came back normal- clean and clear! So, here I am- accepting it. It has been comforting and reassurring to read your posts and know that I AM NOT CRAZY! My husband tells me that if I think I might be crazy than I really AM NOT crazy. Crazy people don't think they're crazy. LOL Thanks for all your words of wisdom. I will be here daily because I have had to cut back my hours and only work part time. It is driving me insane! I used to be a person who could go 3 different directions at one time, but not any more. After being awake (from fragmented sleep) I need a serious nap by 11:00 am! Thanks for listening!
