Unhappy Update on doctors appt.

Well i went to the doctor on 7-30-02 and he told me that i have fibromyalgia. I was just letting you guys know since you helped me when i did not know when i posted should i be worried. Thanks for all of the support through that now that i know what i have i can try and live with it since it is better to know than to not know. Thank you

Cool

Krittany,
I'm glad you found out what was wrong, but sorry that it had to be something like FMS. How are you doing now that it's sinking in?

Don't be a stranger - stay in touch and keep us posted!

Wink

My friend, who also has fibro, swears by getting regular massages. She goes to a school of massage - so it's fairly inexpensive. My doctor said he'd prescribe me to have them, but I'm not a fan of massages by strangers... Then again, you could put hubby to work.

Why don't you take a look at the arthritis.org website - they have a ton of brochures - don't recall if they have anything about spouses and fibro. I'm sure there is a similar separate fibro foundation too, but they won't have the resources that the Arthritis Foundation's site.

I'm sorry you're struggling both physically and emotionally. Please look for support - it's important to your care.
