Hi i was diagnosed in 2002 ,from being quite healthy and working as a senior nursery nurse to a complete wreck .i have IBS, raynaulds disease and have had many visits to physio more in the past 10 weeks as i have got horrific pain which is different than normal in back which also radiates down leg i saw a consultant (about 4 or 5th one )on tues and have to have another mri tomorrow which i am dreading as i panic and end up with palpitations .Its so hard to have a 'normal ' life i have a 7yr old and a 1yr old and have to rely on my mam during the day and my husband when he comes in from work .I am only 33yrs old and feel like the fibro has once again overtaken my life and i have lost control of it .My son has his harvest festival assembley tomorrow morning and im terrified i wont be able to stay and watch it all as the pain will take over but i will keep on fighting this no matter how much it gets me down .good luck to everyone who has this horrible fibro take care claire x x
