Aw Babes, Its not good, is it! How did urs start Babes? Are u in horrific Pain too?
I suffered for 2½yrs b4 anythin was sorted 4 me, I thought i was loosin my mind, i began 2 think it was all in my head. The Pain got so bad that a friend told me 2 ask my GP if i could c a Pain Dr, so a couple more mths later i got my appointment. It took the Pain Dr only 10mins 2 Diagnoise me with FMA, I was given a perscription, a leaflet on FMA and sent on my way. As u can imagin Babes i'd waited over 2½yrs to b told in 10mins i hav an illness that i will have 4 the rest of my life, an illness i'd never heard of, Well, I was in shock & The Best part was my GP doesnt know very much about FMA!! OMG!! AAARRR!!
