Hi Tiki and Welcome. You have two ppl there who believe you have FMS, and those are two very important ppl in your corner. The others don't seem to care enough to accept what you say, so don't look for support from them. I would do what I can do and not worry about 'them'. You only have so much energy, don't waste on ppl who don't support you.
There are several of us on here that have had this since childhood. There is no 'law' that says it doesn't hit till your 50+yrs old.
Start on pg 1, look up Fibro 101, there's a lot of good info there, read over the posts, current and older ones. A lot of good suggestions to help you LIVE your life. Post here, ask questions, share your ideas of things that help you, we all try to help each other.
Hope you have a good evening.
God bless. Alice.
The only way you'll get a diagnoses is to see a specialist. I saw both a nureologist, who initially diagnosed me and then a rheumetologist, it took me two years of running around trying to get it sorted . Two docs two rheumys but now I have them on sided.
It is a long road but you have to ask to see specialists and it may take more than one, you can also try other docs over period of time you may find one more sympathetic.Ask for two referals that way if one doesnt work out you dont have to wait anothe 6 weeks or so. hope you get results soon. sue22z
me again, sue2z. My family didnt beleive or understand either. My stepmother accused me to my face of being out for attention. I have very low self esteem but even I have a point which I stand up. She made me cry and I knew she had talked my father rouond to her way of thinking so I no longer see them. I cant see people who think im putting this on, not after I had to fight for years to even get the docs ect on side, but my own family, nope. I feel a sense of freedom now although it hurts. There is no room in this to have people around that bring you down. I cant see them after having that said to my face. The rest of my family underdtand up to a point and I just have to be happy with that. Weed the negative out, there is no room in this to have that around you. sue2z
