    hello all,

    i was just diagnosed with fibromyalgia last week. i have been on a roller coaster ride trying to figure out what my symptoms were from for about a year now. it is nice to have a diagnosis, but i was surprised to find out what it was.

    i'd like any advice anyone can offer or a better explanation of what this is and now means.

    thanks for any help!

    hello welcome to the FM world, just to let you know that
    never give up believing that we will find a cure. I know when the pain and exhaustion hit its easy to forget that others have walked in your shoes so to speak. First off get a real good book or online info source for yourself.

    I am thankful for the countless words of encouragement over the last 20 years from friends online and out in the real world. Tears have been shed , hair pulled mentally but without them I wouldhave lost my waay many times over.
