    Welcome to the community @Nicki757 :) It's great to have you with us!

    As janer1967 has said, we have plenty of members with fibromyalgia here on the community. Did you have anything in particular you were wanting to ask about, or share? There's no pressure to, but please feel free to ask any questions you may have or share your experiences with us. 

    I've moved your post into our chronic pain and pain management category for now, and I've also tweaked your title so that other members will be able to find your post more easily.

    I have fibromyalgia and diabetes neuropathy and I've just recently been informed that I need a wheelchair now because I can't walk very far away from my door.

    Just thought that my doctors surgery has told me that I have to collect a form from them and fill it in and then I may get some help with this problem.

    I've gone from being active and healthy, to being hardly able to walk very far and now I'm just looking at wheelchairs for myself. I have fibromyalgia and diabetes neuropathy and now I'm just sitting here waiting for my carers to arrive so that I can have a shower and get dressed and get my tablets and insulin. I don't see anyone in between my carers so I'm feeling pretty isolated but not lonely.
