    Hello

    I'm glad to have found this place. I was just diagnosed with fibromyalgia 6/5/2015. I am new to all of this. The only person I have been able to talk to has been my husband. Before I was DX with fibro I had a feeling that's what it was. I even had one Dr. tell me it was all symptomatic (NOT). I...
