    Hello yes I was recently diagnosed with Fibromyalgia which was brought on by the stress of my husband passing away last May and then my mum at Christmas. Dealing with pain is hard enough but at least you can somewhat control it with meds it is the total exhaustion that is killing me I have no strength to do anything. I lay in bed at night and I plan what job I'm going to get done the next day but then when I wake up it doesn't get done because I'm just too tired :(

    Hi @Celia,

    We have a few members on our community that have fibromyalgia. There's also a few discussions about the condition over in our Invisible Impairments category, which might be of interest to you.
