Hi everyone. Have been reading the message board over the last few weeks since it was first suggested I might have FMS. Dr now says I have and from reading message board I agree. I live in Australia, am married, 2 adult sons, 5 grandchildren and worked until nearly 3 years ago. Am 65 next month and had planned to work until this year but things did not work out that way. Could not understand what was happening to me with the fatigue, aches and pains etc. It just wasn't me. It all makes sense now.I was always so busy with work, community activities, crafts, gardening etc and found it hard to understand why I couldn't do things. To read the message board has been great therapy. Will keep in touch and thanks for the opportunity to come on board.Ozgran.
