I just wanted to say hello as I just "surfed in" to this site while looking for information on Fibromyalgia.
I have not yet been formally diagnosed, but I have an appointment this week and I have no doubt in my mind that he will tell me I have it. For the past 5-6 years, I've had inexplainable symptoms that no doctor has been able to detect. I've been to endocrinologists to orthopedic specialists, and they all give me a clean bill of health and send me on my way.
Recently, on a hunch, I looked up Fibro and realized I had every single major symptom, and have for many years. Although it's not "formal" yet, I know that I have it. I will be so looking forward to having a true diagnosis here soon so that I will finally know for certain that I'm NOT crazy... that all of these symptoms ARE related (other docs tried to tell me that they were all seperate) and they are not made up.
My main problem (in addition to the fatigue) is the horrible memory/concentration problems that have plagued me for several years. This is the main cause of my depression, as I feel like I'm losing my mind. Glad to see there's a reason for it.
For anyone with severe "Fibro Fog", is there a way to lessen the symptoms or alleviate them?
Thanks so much for reading this. It's good to know I'm not alone.
