I have recently been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, however i have been suffering with the same symptoms since i was 3 years old.
I was told i had flat-feet and scoliosis, and this was what was causing all of my chronic pain, as i said i have recently be diagnosed with fibromyalgia and have tried numerous methods of pain relief - accupuncture, chiropractor, physio, mary stagg detox. yoga e.t.c plus many tablets such as Citalopram and Amytriptolline.
I was just wondering if anyone suffering with the same issues would be able to give me some new advice, i constantly check the internet for updates and i visit a Fibro Group once a month at my local hospital, i also see a Psychologist, Occupational Therapist and a Physiotherapist every week.
Recently though i have started getting alot of sebacious cyts, i dont know if this has anything to do with my conditions or its just simple wear and tear of my muscles that causes them.

Anyway all in all i am pretty sick and tired of my condition, i have been out of work (partly because no-one will hire someone with as many doctors appointment and days of that i need but also because i cant physically, emotionally or mentally cope with an occupation)now for 8 months and dont have a social life!
Its my 21st birthday and i cant even go on a night out because by the time i get out, i will be in that much pain i have to come back home, get naked and go to bed.
Wearing clothes (as well as putting them on and ofcourse taking them off) is a painfull episode every day, as is being in the shower, reading a book or writing!!!

So as i said i am looking for any advice !!!!!!

Thanks for reading this
