Hi folks, I'm newly diagnosed and frankly a bit down about it as it can't be cured. Usually it's as simple as taking a pill and you will start to feel better! I suffer with aching/swollen feeling ankles, feet, hands and shoulders but also have pain in my back. I am just exhausted and seem to go though a few good days then a few bad days, very up and down. What symptoms do you experience? How do you explain what fibromyalgia is? It's so hard when trying to juggle a full time job and a young family... Any helpful tips? I've tried hot baths, relaxation apps such as headspace, both help but not for long! Off to my GP tomorrow but they don't seem very sympathetic!
