Hi, I'm new here. I feel like a lost soul at the moment. I am 29 years old and have been told by an ER doctor that I probably have fibromyalgia. He did some blood work and sent me on my way. I am not able to get to the doctor until some time next month and am in a lot of pain. I have friends who have chronic pain conditions and it scares me that I may be facing the same type of thing. I all ready have several mental and health issues to begin with. I am tired of taking pills all the time and the thought of having to take more really upsets me. I've never hurt like this before, ever. There really isn't that much information that I have been able to find, even on the internet. I guess I am just really scared about how this is going to affect my life. I have 3 young children and work full time. Can anyone let me know how they coped when they first started having problems? I feel like no one understands me.
