hi fran i have had symtoms for many years but of late the tiredness was awful i was surfing the net for something else and found fibromyalgia symptoms and sat and cried as i ticked nearly all the boxes. my doctor sent me to the hospital were i was seen by a doctor who said says here you think you have FM well i said i was thinking it could be. he asked lots of questions and then said do you know the 18 points of pain. oh no i said no good looking at those you only talk yourself into it. i did know the points of pain. he then touch one shoulder rubbed his hands down my legs and said well i dont think you have it, go away get on with your life. i was furious i said so what your saying is that its all in my head!!!!!. after a few weeks i went back to see another GP and told him that this is what happened he said well as far as im concerned you have FM you present with all the symptoms. ive been on a low dose antidepressant for years which helps me to sleep even thogh i dont take them regular.
