Nimu - May 6

I am new to this site (2 days now) and it has been very helpful getting to know that there are people that I can understand and vice versa. I am based in Nairobi, Kenya and so far I have not come across anyone else that suffers FMS. I am lucky to have found 2 doctors that have some understanding of FMS but they are both extremely busy with FMS not being their primary area of focus. Would anyone here know of other suffers in the region? Of doctors that are working here that I could work with? I have been living with FMS for the last 6 years now.

Hi Nimu, sorry about you feeling out of it, from the fact you seem to be the only one in your area. The one thing that I can say, is, we all have those feeling of being the only one. True maybe in your case, but you would be surprise to find that most doctors' don't know much, and it the best treatment for you, is to learn everything there is about fibro symptoms and another other conditions or medical treatments.

When you see your primary physician, don't be shy to bring along topics of interest, about Fms and what kind of treatments that are available. The one thing you should do, is keep a diary of your symptoms, this will help you understand what triggers your conditions and also will help your primary physician see that you are serious about a treatment option plan.

Don't forget to write to us, and give your two cents of information or just to rant or rave to pose questions. We all rely on each others experience and words of kindness when we needed.

Keep your chin up and try to google fibro in Kenya, or words close to that, you might be able to find a group near you.

Take care and you come back soon

Sandra
