My Story

The Beginning Of The End!

My day began as normal for ME..... I got up slowly, fighting the pain and telling myself, 'move and it will ease', as it often did! I began to read .....

Dear Denise,
..... It was my feeling that when we met that you had nuisance physical symptoms, but without a serious medical cause to underpin this. It is possible that you might have a chronic fatigue syndrome or fibromyalgia, but there is no pointer to anything serious ......

This was it! The Beginning Of The End. The beginning of knowing and the end of not knowing. I had a diagnosis at last! Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and/or Fibromyalgia Syndrome!

What does this mean I ask myself. Of course over a span of 12 years I'd heard of these things and on my easier days had wondered if that was what I too had. But still it seemed to make a mockery of the pain I was feeling.

When we met that you had NUISANCE Physical Symptoms .....

It is POSSIBLE that you MIGHT have a Chronic Fatigue Syndrome or Fibromyalgia Syndrome .....

There is NO pointer to ANYTHING SERIOUS .....

These thoughts raced through my head and came to live with me for the following 2 years. The Doctor's comments are all well and good if you don't have to live with the weird symptoms that I have on a day to day basis. They are more than just nuisance physical symptoms, that you can become accustomed to, they feel extremely serious. CFS/ME and Fibromyalgia, could well describe what is wrong with me. But was that it? nothing more? No assistance? No help?

What was I to do?
