Help finding a fibro friendly GP FINCHLEY

Hi everyone, I was diagnosed with fibro early this year.. My doctor I'm sure does not believe fibro exists. She decided to reduce my meds & wants me off duloxetine. After getting frustrated she sent me to pain clinic. I was so happy as the Dr at the pain clinic was wonderful. She has emailed my GP telling her to put me back on the dosage that worked (to a degree) but when my new ...

Do I just suffer then???

Been back and forwards to doctors over the past year, mainly with complete exhaustion. Had blood tests (again) last month which he wasn't happy with, so more last week, when I saw him yesterday he said that apart from my blood count being a bit low everything else had settled down so probably had had a virus. He also put my thyroxine dose down from 100mg a day to 75mg a day as he thought ...

What do I do now?

Hello everyone

I have been going to my GP for around 2 and a half years with really bad headaches, tingles in my arms and legs, sudden tiredness and what I can only call ditziness when I suddenly forget the word I want to use or can't make a decision. The GP after most of the 2 years said I had fibromyalgia. They referred me to a rheumatology consultant who seemed only to hear 'headache ...

I was referred to my local hospital pain management team, and told there's a 4-5 month wait :( I ...

Second Opinion

Hi, how do I get a second opinion. My GP says I have Fibro and we have been trying various meds for past two years now and I can't get any release. She won't do anything further and says it all about how you deal with the pain - I am just so feed up.

Norfolk - what services, anyone 'in the know'?

Hi all

I'm new to finding our what services there are for fibro in Norfolk, but not new to fibro. I was diagnosed about 2 years ago at Addenbrookes and discharged straightaway on diagnosis. A few weeks back the Norfolk CFS/ME service diagnosed me with CFS/ME too and I'm the waiting list to see the CFS Occupational Therapist.

I've kinda neglected myself the past few years :nono: ...

Dr refused repeat prescription painkillers

My Dr has refused my repeat prescription request for painkillers, I've been taking them regularly 4 times a day for the past month or so on the advice of the physio, as opposed to as and when. I usually collect them a couple of days before I run out, I last got some about a week ago and put in an early request as it is really difficult for me to get to the Dr's ...
