Well hi all!
Maddie from Sweden here got the fibromyalgia diagnosis 3 or 4 years ago now I think (fibromyalgia brain)
It all started with pains in my legs from the knee down as I was in soo bad pains I went to my local doc he thought it just was some inflammation so he told me to go home take aspirin and just rest pain went away for a lil while but at work one day it started up again but now legs knee down and arms elbow down.
Walked back in to my doctors office and the thought well mabye Rumatism but no so they put me on something called (here) kortison wich I later got to know you have to get off slowly but doc didn't tell me any who pains got worse and in more places.
Started noticing on the bus to work that if ppl sat next to me I got shooting pains all across my body and yes I wanted to screeeeam.
So yet again back to doc who said well I think we have to send u to a specialist in pains and thank god he did send me there.
I don't think I could have handled more visits to doctors at the local doctors office cuz at the specialist in pain they diagnosed me with fibromyalgia in just 2 visits (Doctor,nurse, work therapist and a psychologist )
Diagnosis only took me 2 years to get.
They helped me a lot over the months I went there and to me they are worth theire weight in gold.
How ever due to me working at a preschool I couldn't keep going back there as I can't afford Beeing of work.
I remember just thinking why me I'm just 27-28 years old how the hell is this happening to me?
Tho I was carrying a lot of stress due to my dad getting his MS diagnosis and everything just came tumbling down.
Any who so sorry for a long intro about me lol
