Hi all
I have been suffering fibromyalgia, I am finding it so hard to cope and no one seems to understand, sometimes I feel very alone.

    Hello @Kaz123        

    My Name is Connie00   :)

      

    Ia m one off the community Champion’s here at Scope.  it’s really nice to meet you.

    A very warm welcome to the Community. I trust you are having a good day today

    I myself suffer with Asthma, Fibromyalgia, Rheumatoid Arthritis, CFS and FND, (functional neurological disorder) and a lung disorder which completely fails me when I have an asthma attack.

    So, I live most of my days in pain, I can relate to where you are coming from, sometimes it gets the better of me, and sometimes I’m not sure which one is playing up more, difficult to know, so I really have empathy for you.

    Please don't feel alone get on here and give your keyboard a good thrashing, as my lovely colleagues have suggested, plenty of our members suffer with this condition so no need to ever feel alone. have you also tried Fibromyalgia online groups  on Facebook.  are you getting support?, are your Family supportive?


    if we can be  of any support to you or of any further help please let us know.

    Have a good evening
