Is there anyone else on here with fibromyalgia? I was diagnosed in 2013 but known I've had it a lot longer ( but without a name) just all these crazy symptoms appearing. Finding it hard to keep a steady job going and it's totally getting me down atm. Lost job on Friday only had it 2.5 weeks as a van driver now knocked my confidence in driving altogether.

    Hi @daisyboo2011 I was d/x Jan 2015, much like yourself with weird symptoms. 
    However I haven't worked for quite some time as my DD is autistic and I wanted to be at home for her at the time she was starting senior school and since then she has gone through hell but tbh knowing how the last few years have been I doubt I would have been able to keep a job. Have you been to your GP? They may be able to prescribe antidepressants, or something to help with pain relief and/or sleeping. I really sympathise with your situation and hope you've got some type of support network. 
    I'm pretty sure I've had this for about 30 yrs now (I'm 49) any questions please feel free to ask xx
