    Recently Diagnosed (╯︵╰,)

    Hello! I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia about a month ago and the way I was told has kind of been bugging me. For context: I'm 22 years old, I've never been too active, I walk/jog a few days a week (when I physically feel up to it) and I've never had any serious medical conditions before...

    Good morning all. I'll apologise now as I think my first post here is going to be a long one. Just so grateful I've found this place and reading through I'm not alone. I was diagnosed with fibro a month ago. Surprisingly it only took 2 months for my dr to diagnose. What I didn't realise and...

    I am looking for people diagnosed with fibromyalgia for short telephone interviews.

    Diagnosed a couple of months ago

    Hello everyone. I think I finally have a diagnosis?? I have been experiencing aches in my legs for years. The pains are mainly in my ankles and around my knees. I get off of work and cannot wait to get out of my clothes as they feel constricting. If on too long my body starts to feel tingly. I...

    Just Diagnosed. Why Did It Take So Long?

    I'm a newbie here. Diagnosed with Fibromyalgia on 5/4/22 by a rheumatologist. Follow-up with my primary and diagnosis was expanded to Fibromyalgia with overlapping symptoms of CFS on 5/11/22. I knew nothing about Fibro/CFS prior to my first visit with my rheumatologist on 5/4/22. They had...
