Is this how it’s always going to be? Or will things improve? Fibromyalgia
Hello all, this is all new to me. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia a few months ago after several years of feeling unwell. After a spell in hospital, where I thought I was having a heart attack, I was diagnosed with costochondritis which I was told was a common symptom with fibromyalgia. Since then I have felt so poorly. A common cold knocked me for six.. I cannot explain to anyone how dreadful I feel without the ‘eye rolling’ and false sympathy. I have been made to feel like a bit of a fraud especially at work. My employers are sympathetic on the surface but I have had several upsetting comments made by other employees about my ‘laziness’ !!! Everything is such a struggle at the moment, I feel as if my life is passing me by... I am so so tired and everything is so exhausting. Is this normal? Is this how it’s always going to be? Or will things improve? I know it’s early days and sorry to moan but I’m struggling and no one seems to have any constructive advise. Thank you
