Hi all...I wouldn't wish fms on anyone, but it's such a relief to find there are more ppl like me out there. Now I know I'm not a hypocondriac! I've spent the last 6 years going backwards and forwards between doctors and hospitals. I've given so much blood my arms are like pin cushions.All in an attempt to find out why for 6 years I've felt like my body is giving up on me. At last I've been given an answer..fms.I also have osteoarthritis in my hips. At the age of 31 I was beginning to feel like I was ready for the scrap heap. I've got used to waking up hurting, but just knowing I'm not the only one is such a help.I'm only just learning about fms, as I was only recently diagnosed, so I'll be watching the message boards with interest.
