Hi Tori & :welcome:

What symptoms do you have that you need advice on as many of us have widespread pain and some have pain in located areas.

As you just been diagnosed what pain management have the doctors given?

There are many medications and therapies that can help ease symptoms but im afraid its a trial and error as we all respond to different treatments.

The doctors normaly start with Amitripyline and physio, this is standered in most areas but there is so much more that can help.

This link is a good place to start, gives you an idea of treatments... http://ukfibromyalgia.com/pages/quick-help.php

Hello all,

I'm Oliver. I posted a little hello elsewhere on this site a couple of months back but I thought I might try posting on here to see if anyone wants to chat at all. I'm pretty stressed out at the moment, I've not been able to work for the last couple of years and have an appeal tribunal for my assessment of being fit to work in a couple of weeks and have no idea what I'm going to do if I lose. So would love to chat to anyone who's been through something similar there for one.

But also anything else that distracts me from that looming disaster for a bit is appreciated! Anyway, hope everyone's well!

Hi Oliver,

I'm not knowledgeable about these things, so unfortunately, I don't have info that could help alleviate some of that stress.
I can imagine how stressful it must be though.
I still work full time - at the moment, however, I've been signed off at the request of Occupational Health Dept until mid July. If I haven't had MRI and various other tests done, it could be longer. Thankfully, I get full pay for 6 months, then half pay for 6 months.
But if I'm being honest, it has crossed my mind, " what if I can't go back to work?"
Blooming awful that the worry of financial stress, adds to the already debilitating symptoms.
Fingers crossed for a positive outcome, Oliver.

Much Love
Lindy x
