    I just wanted to say hi and I have been reading a lot of posts. I have not been diagnosed with fm but my massage therapist thinks from my symptoms I have it. I have talked to my general Dr but he is not listening to me. It is very tiring to not be taken seriously or just given steroids. I also have carpal tunnel syndrome and when my hands were examined by an orthopedic surgeon she mentioned I might have arthritis in my wrist. But did she send me for any tests? No. I am just sick of doctors and not being taken seriously. The last couple days I have been in so much pain that I am so frustrated. I hate feeling useless. And it doesn't help that we are doing renovations in our masterbedroom and bath. I just have no strength. Reading the posts makes me feel like I am not so alone in this. Thankfully DH is so supportive. Thanks for reading this.

    Is FM, but we have a great group of friends here who can always understand what you are going through and be able to answer questions you may have.

    Hi Doxielover70,
    I too am new. Diagnosed with FMS about 3 weeks ago. I am still in the "angry" stage. I am thinking about accepting it tomorrow. I have been pulling a Scarlet for about a week now LOL

    My MD has been very supportive. I am in the school system and June 1st marks the first day of my vacation. One month at the beach, and no work or school until August 1st. Maybe during the month I will be able to figure this out.

    So, I guess we find ourselves in the same boat. It sure is good to have an online support group. Keep your chin up, it is not too painful. Every day it seems something else hurts...in addition to what already hurts. So as they say,
    "I feel your pain".

    Belle yep doxie if for dachshunds. I have 6 of them. 4 long hair and 2 smooth plus 2 cockers. If anything they keep me busy.
    Prickles yes I wake up often at night. And I find myself always tense. I have to mentally try to remember to relax. And the horrible knots in my muscles. Ugh. I could go on and on. But I know that everyone else pretty much is going through the same thing. It is weird that things that I really didn't think much of are tied to fm. I either have diarrhea or I am constipated. I have corporal tunnel syndrome, can't tolerate cold, noises, smells. I could go on and on. The next step I need to make is to find a Dr that will listen. I guess I keep putting it off cause I am tired of not being taken seriously. Today just was a bad day. But tomorrow will be better. It usually is. Just like everyone else some days are good others not so good. Thanks for listening to me.
