I have a diagnosis!!!!

Went to a pain management doctor today and it turns out I most likely have fibromyalgia. He's sending me to another specialist to make sure there's no underlying problem.

I felt so relieved 😌 when I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia a few weeks ago. I felt validated at last even though the reality of this diagnosis is a life of pain and all the other symptoms that go with it. There is no cure but there are ways to help ease the pain and other symptoms.
I hope you are doing well and that getting a diagnosis eases your mind.

Despite having a really painful week I was so incredibly happy to hear a diagnosis.

Congratulations on getting a diagnosis!

Personally I have been told I'm lazy, a hypochondriac, drug seeking patient, anti social, uncaring, worthless and I'm sure you have heard them all. It felt so good 😊 to tell everyone I know that I have never been any of those things. I just wish I could of found out sooner so I wouldn't have had to go through so much ❀️ heartache. ((Lots of πŸ€— hugs))

It's a shame to say it, but a diagnosis means that you don't have to explaine yourself anymore. ☺️And that takes away much of the bad guilt, and takes away a big burden from your shoulders!! πŸ€—
So, even nobody wants to be sick, or have a diagnosis: Gratz with the diagnosis! Another perspective to work from! 😘🌹🌹
