I went to see a physio today. She agreed I had FM and said there was nothing she could do.

What with my depression, ie brain having a chemical inbalance, and now her saying with FM my messages computed but the brain are LOUD as opposed to regular messages being whispers I feel pretty rubbish. I have a lot of pain atm and just dreading how things are going to go. There seems nothing I can do and I feel blue.

DH suggested I get a squeezy ball but don't know it that would help.

I am having a lot of pain in my fingers right now.

She sounds like a crap physio tbh - I have nerve pain from the crps, and my physio does acupuncture, and we'll be trying tens in the new year, along with nerve retraining and desensatisation to teach my brain that things like touching fabric is not painful

Sorry to hear that you are unwell, but what's FM? I've googled but nothing that makes sense comes up.

It's not the same as having real support and treatment but I've recently discovered this site and a lot of people have found it useful.

I just feel sad. I am not particularly old (though the consultant said I was middle agedshock) and feel rubbish if I will have this pain for the rest of my life.

Leonie - you helped me a lot in the past with hypothyroid questions. I have had to concede I was probably wrong as I have lost 15lbs in the last few weeks.

Thank you for the link and your replies.
