A tentative... Hello

Hello to all FM sufferers. Straightaway I would like to say I’m not sure I should be here. I’m a bloke who’s never been diagnosed with fibromyalgia and doesn’t usually do forums. That said, I’ve been told by my GPs (several of them at the same practice) that all of my symptoms could lead to a diagnosis of FM, if it weren’t for their honest and forthright professional belief that FM, along with IBS, TMJ ...

Severe hip pain with Fibro?

Hello, fellow-sufferers. Following on from another severe flare-up with Fibro, I suddenly developed terribly right hip pain, right across the lower back, and in the groin area, and right down the legs, worse with the right. I cannot lift my right foot to get socks on, or get into pyjamas, the pain is excruciating. I have been crying-out with trying to move a few steps, as pain is so severe. Has anyone else had this ...

hello fibro-sufferers, it has been sometime since I have written. Life with pain gets no easier, but I am wondering if anyone has taken Turmeric and found it helpful. My daughter wanted me to try it, as she has found such an increase in her energy levels, but she does not have fibromyalgia, but she is a teacher and has to stand all day, and she does a great deal of walking, of necessity. Also ...

Recently diagnosed

Hi everyone
I've recently been diagnosed by a Rheumatology consultant. He suggested that I change from my current antidepressant dosulepin to duloxetine as he says it has an element of painkiller in it. My GP has said to stop the dosulepin for 7 days and then start taking the duloxetine. I'm worried about this as I've been on dosulepin for a long time (years) so don't know how I will react to stopping it suddenly. ...

For the past few months I’ve had typical Fibromyalgia symptoms which I’m sure you’re all far too familiar with. I had blood tests which showed I had a vitamin D deficiency so I’m on supplements. The doctor said it can take up to 6 months to correct a vitamin D deficiency but due to my range of symptoms she “strongly suspects” I have Fibromyalgia. I have to wait until April/May to see if the ...
