Hi everyone,
Just saying hello, I am not diagnosed as yet, I do have rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia. My rheumy says hes sure theres a crossover, but nothing shows up so far.
I get quite bad headaches, tests etc revealed nothing, I do wear glasses, they have been examined too (eyes) lol!! Rheumy basically says that as I am on plaquenil anyway I am already on correct meds. Lots of other symptoms, the usual ones, fatigue, muscle aches, swelling, fever etc

I cant seem to find any forums here in the UK, just sites which give information and advice, so I am really glad to find you all!!!! I hope to make some lovely friends who are much more knowledgeable and able to help with ideas, diets maybe that might help.

Thank you for reading this

Hello Starryeyes and welcome to the forum from central U.S. of A. Be sure and check-out the "stickies" at the top of each section of the forum. Enough info there that I *still* haven't completely digested it all...

Welcome!!!!! I love knowing that this reaches so many wonderful people! As far as not being diagnosed yet, be patient and don't give up. It is a battle we have all had to go through.
