Hi I'm Jo I'm new to this site after finding out on Facebook that you also support fibromyalgia sufferers..I have had my diagnosis for around 7 years after lots of other symptoms appeared, once I could tolerate medication I was able to resume a new normal lifestyle until recently when my medication seems to have stopped working I am constantly in widespread pain and fatigued all the time, medication is just about to be increased I just feel as though I'm on a hamster wheel going round and round with no way of getting off it...sorry for the long introduction x

    Hi @FIBROJO Jo 😊Welcome to the versus Arthritis Online Community I am very glad you have found us we absolutely do support people who have Fibromyalgia here. Many of our members also have this condition sometimes alongside other conditions sometimes on it's own.

    Your introduction is by no means too long so no apology is needed. It is helpful in fact. I see your medication has recently stopped working for you and is due to be increased. I imagine you know an awful lot about Fibromyalgia, but I wonder if a look through this might throw up something new to you?

    There's a story in there by Lynn about her life with Fibromyalgia.

    I'll leave you now to meet our members.

    Best wishes
