Hi all
Its been along time since I last posted .
I've recently had to have my fluoxetine increased to 40mg a day which has started to help but I've now got gout .

Not just any old earache

Many FM sufferers mention in this forum that their ears, sinuses and throats are affected. For me this is the one truly hateful symptom, at the top of my grudge list, that I find difficult to accept pragmatically within the context of my chronic aches and pains.

Blister type patterns

Hi Folks,

Does anyone else have issues with blister type patterns on their skin? ( see pic)I have had these for months, only on my right hand, nowhere else. They're not itchy, not painful.

Low folate & B12 - Anybody else have this?

Hi all,

I'm waiting to get a firm diagnosis of fibro from the rheumatologist.
I asked the Doc to do some blood tests before my appointment with her in April.

I've had a call from the docs who told me that my B12 & folate have come back as low.

I'm having a phone consultation with the Doc tomorrow, but was wondering if this could be the source of my problems or just adding to/the ...
