I have been "lurking" on the site for a month or so, and I thought I would join in. I was diagnosed with Fibro in March of this year (although I have had symptoms for several years). My rheumy diagnosed carpal tunnel last week and I may have RA also. He wants to monitor me for a couple of months and run a few more tests before he makes that diagnosis. It is possible because both Fibro and RA run in my family.
In the time I have been looking at this site, I have been impressed by the helpfulness and the compassion in the responses. In my own case, I can't believe how much energy pain can take out of you. I feel like I am exhausted all of the time. It is amazing that you can get used to being in pain.
Thanks for "listening". I apologize if my post seems kind of rambling. I am really not a poster and I am a little "foggy" today. I just wanted to say Hi.
