Fibrositis or Fibromyalgia?


I'm new here, I was diagnosed with FM in 2014, I feel as though my GP didn't know a lot about it, she didn't refer me to anywhere to have other things ruled out, didn't ask for blood tests, she did a pressure point test from information she had printed out, I mean to be fair, I had tried the things you would usually to help FM before being diagnosed with it, I initially ...

Private Fibromyalgia clinic in Edinburgh ?

Can anyone help me please? I have fibromyalgia and I was talking to someone who gets treatment from a private clinic in Edinburgh.

This lady has great relief of pain whilst taking this particular drug.

The drug is on private prescription and may be an unlicensed drug.

Does anyone know the name and address of this clinic?

Any help is much appreciated.

Thank you

Need advise to choose mattress

Hi all!

I'm not diagnosed yet with fibro, but I think I get most of the symptoms already (trouble sleeping, headaches, and morning stiffness) and in my case :sleep: , I prefer to prevent problems rather than deal with them in further. I'm thinking to begin with fixing my sleep spot and decided to obtain a mattress for victims of fibro.

Found this review and video ...

Fibromyalgia - Ancient and Modern

I recently acquired a book: Everybody’s Family Doctor (no author given but published by Odhams Press Ltd in 1935). After eighty-three years it’s well out of copyright. But well out of date….? Perhaps not. In this fascinating dictionary-like tome of illnesses and medicine, which some of you might have lurking about, there is a significant entry on Fibrositis (an arguably older name for FM). I think it's worth my transcribing the whole reference:

Are all FM sufferers neurotics?

In my relentless quest for explanations and answers, I pose the seemingly harmless question: what type of person develops FM? It’s not a new question, having been asked many times by all sorts of people, most far more qualified than me to interpret any answers. Just to be clear here, I’m talking about personality types and character traits, from an affected layman’s point of view.

Pre-supposing that the medically qualified expert (GP, Specialist, Nurse etc.) ...

Painintheneck’s top 10 symptoms

Following my recent posts to this forum, I began thinking of how I would actually list my symptoms in some sort of order, if ever asked. I came up with the following very unoriginal ‘Top Ten’ format.

So it’s any Saturday afternoon forty years ago and you’re listening to ‘FM’ radio ;-) That blaring unmistakable music, “At The Sign Of The Swinging Cymbal”, introduces the countdown and ...
