At last been diagnosed

Good morning everyone hope everyone is coping in these strange times.

At last saw a rheumatologist yesterday after a very long long wait been examined n diagnosed with oestoatheritis and fibromyalgia. Suddenly everything is clicking into place. The constant pain in muscles n joints and feeling exhausted . Knees neck n hands worse. Actually kicked me up the bum as I need to gentle stretch n exercises n definitely be kinder and more gentle with myself. I'm sure many of you can relate to this. Back to pain management and carry on . Feel relieved in a way to be diagnosed now to learn how to cope with everyday life and stresses.any advice from fellow sufferers greatly appreciated Stay safe tracie xx


  • Hi @Tracie

    I would agree with you that having a diagnosis helps everything click into place.

    As you say back to pain management and learning how to cope with the stresses of everyday life . I see that you have posted a number of times before but wondered if you had come across the Let's Move with Leon area

    I have found his easy to follow instructions and his caring attitude towards his mum who does the exercises alongside him very helpful I hope you do .

    Let us know how you get on

    Take care
