Useful advice sheets from my GP

Postby Flaw » Tue Mar 12, 2013 8:12 pm

My GP has a real interest in treating fibro patients (just wish I could get an appointment!)

Here's a link to a talk she did and some other helpful fact sheets for those who may suspect they have fibro but aren't diagnosed, or even for those who are! Sorry if they've been posted before, but I don't think her talk has.
Hope someone finds it useful.

These are more than useful they are fantastic. I can relate to so many of the symptoms. Thanks for sharing. No wonder it is hard to get an appointment. :teddy-bear:

Flaw,
I totally agree with the other posters. That is such a well ordered and concise summary of all aspects of FM! It basically covers all the elements covered in an 8 week course I was sent on about Fibro awareness, when I was first diagnosed. At the time I wasn't really able to take it all in, as I had never heard of Fibro before I was diagnosed and was still in shock that my symptoms weren't just all to do with the menopause Lol :roll:
Thanks so much for sharing it.

Wow Flaw that's amazing.

The presentation really does explain things so much better than I ever could to others - just wish I could have one of those t shirts to wear lol.

I've sent the link to my boss and my mum. Both understand and are very supportive but just felt this explained things much better.

Thanks Flaw

xx

What a great doctor to have, it would give me so much more confidence in the medical profession if even one GP in a surgery or group of surgeries was as clued up as this lady obviously is.

Sent the link to my OH, he has read some of it so will see what he says. He seems "to get " the pain & the fatigue but can't quite understand all the other symptoms .

Mods would it be possible to tag this in some way so it was always available ...like the spoon thread is ....sorry don't know the tech term :lol:

With how helpful these could be for all of us, I've stickied them so they won't drop down and get lost in the dust and cobwebs of the older posts :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
