    Hello @nettie1968 and a very warm welcome to the community. Glad to have you with us.
    The truth is that we have any number of fibromyalgia sufferers among our members and some of them will be in touch with you in due course. If you care to take a look, you'll find many of them within the category 'Dealing with chronic pain' and you're welcome to read, and to contribute if you wish to.
    You're certainly not going to be alone here :smile:
    Don't hesitate to ask us any further questions or to tell us anything more about your situation. The better we know you, the more easily we may be able to help you.
    Very warmest best wishes to you,
    Richard
