How can I start to get my head round my totally unexpected diagnosis of fibromyalgia?
I have had osteoarthritis and Raynauds for many years and managed to convince my GP last year that I was really struggling. I thought I had rheumatoid arthritis as it is rife in my family. I have seen a consultant who immediately described everything I was experiencing and said that I should have been diagnosed years ago!
I just don't know where to start with this condition and am so disappointed that, for me, pain relief isn't an option. I have started Leo's programme, but I don't know if I have the mental strength now to keep trying after years of struggling with keeping active. I am 82 years old.
