New to the site but not to the pain

I just recently got diagnosed with fibromyalgia but have had some of the symptoms for 10 or so years. I've also got compressed fractures in my spine that cause me issues now and again. I've suffered from migraines since I was in high school. My doctor has me on gabapentin and has been slowly increasing the dosage to help with the fibromyalgia nerve pain, and I'm starting to wonder if it isn't weakening my muscles, I cant want for long distances anymore without the use of my cane of walker (I'm only 35). I'm hoping to find a support group here and people that I can talk with and relate too, there aren't a whole lot of people in my area that understand what I'm going thru

    I have a few close people who support me, but just found out my dr is closing his practice in a month and a half and no one in my area is taking on chronic pain patients 😕 But I am glad that I found this site.
