Hi Carol and welcome to the forum!

Thank you for introducing yourself and giving us some background. It sounds like you have multiple challenges like many of us here and I do think you would benefit from this forum.

No doubt you have read lots of threads here....keep reading and you will get a sense of the caring nature of the 'long-diagnosed' on the forum. They have been a life saver for me. The 'newly-diagnosed' (like me) have often suffered for many years before a diagnosis of fibromyalgia is given.

Going through all of those tests is a trial in itself and can be very exhausting and frustrating. Doubts are normal and reasonable considering all of your other diagnoses....but often fibro happens to people with multiple diagnoses, especially auto-immune disorders so keep an open mind if you can. Was it ultimately the rheumatologist that made the diagnosis?

Feel free to start a new thread posing any questions you have. The others might have some good advice. Best of luck. I hope you begin to feel better soon.

Hello Carol. I am new here too. Glad we have places to discuss what we are feeling since most don't understand.
