Welcome, Dolphin. I'm fairly new here as well. Good place to learn and share and better manage your fibro, amongst other things.

Still learning how to manage my Fibromylagia, and all the lovely gifts it brings.   
I had severe spinal stenosis, had fusion done on C5-7, and my life has changed.

Hi Dolphin, and welcome! You have been welcomed by many, but in our little fibro funny farm, we say NO! to that silly stinkin pain! [doing my worst scarface imitation :] You have heard that this is an outstanding place of compassionate people, but let me give you a tiny taste of what this forum means to me: In August of 2008, my husband was out of the country for several weeks and I was alone in the Twin Cities, having just moved there 2 months before. I slipped into a horrid flare so fast that it scared me, a flare like no other I had ever experienced. SO- lets recap- new to the community, knew no one yet, husband gone, family and friends 1500 miles away. My flare took me down! So- I got on this forum, described what was going on, got some great advice, and took it- got myself to the hospital and found treatment for all the crazy things the flare did in a short time. I felt then and still do that without the intervention of my pals here, I would have been in real trouble. SO- don't ever hesitate to talk to us, we will all understand and offer whatever help we can, with no judgements or strings attached. Peace!
