Welcome! Many people here have fibro and RA. You are not alone. I have fibro, carpal tunnel and I'm hypoglycemic. You will find lots of support here. I had fibro for 6 years at least with bad pain. i have had symptoms of it since I was a kid, but everyone said it was growing pains, but then the growing pains and never went away. I. Here if you need to talk.

Welcome to the community criccardo83. I'm sorry you have fibro. I do to. If you have any questions feel free to ask.

Agreed. If you have any questions just ask us or you can start a discussion if you would like a lot of input from many suffers of both fibromyalgia and RA.

I'm new here too. I have a demyleanating disease that has many of the signs of MS, but per my MRI's and which Dr. is asked, it is MS, yet others call it a demyleanating disease of unknown origin. I've been tested and retested for not only MS, but for every other known demyleanating disease and disorder. The Dr's are at a loss, but one of the positive tests was for neuropathy. Which I already knew, because it is very painful. I also was having severe cluster migraines that I finally found relief for from Imitrex. It truly was a life saver. To add to the mix I was in a severe auto accident 2 yrs ago and spent 28 days in the hospital. They had to put my right leg back together and now it's full of metal and hurts constantly to this day. Am seeing a new orthopedist this month, so wish me luck. Oh, and the icing on the cake : I'm scheduled for surgery on my right hand and middle finger next month for severe carpel tunnel and trigger finger. Hopefully next year will be better. I refuse to accept this daily pain as my fate. I will get 2nd opinions, find the best Dr's and leave no stone unturned until I beat this thing! I hope that you can find the same resolve, and wish you the best.
