Hi Amanda, welcome to the forum!

18 years is a long time, good for you for keeping on keeping on :)

I see you were diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in 2000, it must have been terrible the 5-6 years before then. Did you suspect Fibromyalgia or was their so little information back then you were scratching your head along with your doctor?

Hello Amanda, Welcome to the forum. I know just what you have been through these 18 long years. For me the last 15 years part the hard part was the muscle weakness. I could bite my lip and deal the pain, but when I could not do my job because of weakness that was bad. I am looking forward to reading your posts around the forum and sharing tips or humor as best that I can. I am sure you have some tales to tell of your experiences in dealing with this illness.
