      I hit my 10 years last year. I feel like we deserve a medal or something.

      If you work at limitations, hot baths to soak and OTC meds.

        @Dollydip23 Fibromyalgia is basically an exclusion diagnosis. Although your symptoms do sound a lot like fibromyalgia symptoms, all other possibilities will need to be excluded before you get a fibromyalgia dx. It will be time and energy consuming (I'm reaching 1yr since my first appointment and only just been referred to a Rheumatologist for an official dx) - but having bloods done is the first step in the right direction, which will usually show as "normal" with fibro. Reach out if you need any advice, and good luck on your dx journey.
