My name is SJ and I live in Wales. I am a civil servant. I was firstly diagnosed with ME 25 years ago but the diagnosis was then changed to fibromyalgia about 4 or 5 years later. I take venlafaxine, amitriptaline, gabapentin, morphine as my main pain killers. I do still manage to work although I have recently dropped a few hours a week.

Hi SJ Welcome to the forum.

My situation is similar to yours with an original ME diagnosis back in 1989, but developed the fibro symptoms after a car accident in 1999. I think a lot of the symptoms overlap and are similar in other respects. I was also a civil servant but the organisation was privatised and I'm retired now.

Hello and welcome SJ :-)

I was diagnosed last year. Been a rather tough year at that! I work full-time ( recently back after 6 months off sick).
Neuro doubled the gabapentin, and I have to say, that seems to be keeping me on an even keel. Hope I haven't jinxed myself by saying that lol.

Much Love
Lindy x
