Hello Everyone. I'm new to the group and just wanted to say hello to everyone. I have mostly been lurking until I got the courage to put up a post so here goes. I was recently diagnosed with fibro in February. I have been trying to do some research but really don't remember a lot of what I read. I will keep on reading and rereading anyway! I started having problems about 4 years ago not long after a brain surgery to remove a 3.5cm benign tumor pressing against my brain stem. I haven't been the same since then and the doctors tell me I'm way past the point that any problems are surgery related. There are so many things going on and when I went to the doctor I would only tell him what was the worse and just figured the rest was me going crazy or something. When I finally gave my doctor all my symptoms at once, he did a pressure test and told me I have fibro. I have heard of it in the past, but never really knew what it was all about and now I'm still hoping he will find something else instead. I recently also had some blood work so we'll see what comes up with that. I also wanted to say that everyone on the boards here have a lot of good information to share and I really do appreciate it. I don't always post a lot because of never being able to say what I actually wanted to say. I'm trying to work on that! I hope to meet some new people and learn even more about this new diagnosis of FM.
