Happened upon this community by chance Googling about Fybro and PIP. I`ve not been diagnosed with fybro but it`s something that I feel I need to be checked for. I have a long list of illnesses and in the process of going to tribunal for my PIP claim. I have two rare blood cancers, Polycythaemia vera (PV) and Essential thrombocythaemia (ET), Under active thyroid, had a mini stroke, high blood pressure, mastoiditis and had numerous ops on my right ear and deafness in that ear,  knackered gallbladder, lovely lump on my achilles which is not going away and doc said no operation will work so its a case of put up with the pain, a weak right ankle that gives way for no reason and I end up on the floor . Arthritis in my fingers and by god if they get knocked that`s some pain. Degeneration in my back and my knees...oh and depression and anxiety. Just ten years ago I ran the London Marathon....and the only thing that affected me at the time was my hearing...what a difference a decade makes !!!

    @Piggypoo welcome to the community! :) Hope you're well today?

    I hope everything goes well with the GP exploring the Fibromyalgia diagnosis :) You have been through so much, I do hope you have great support around you?

    Wow! Running the London Marathon?! Was that a personal goal? or did you run for a charity?
