I've always woken up feeling exhausted, hated going to school because of the early mornings. I thought I'd grow out of it. But it was the same when...

    Completely Lost..

    Hello my name is William. I was told Friday by a specialist that he is 99% sure I have FMS. He told me that this will never go away and that I will fight it for the rest of my life.
