Flaw ...have to add how sucessful your GPs notes have been ......OH is a reluctant reader of anything to do with FM , he's a head in sand kinda guy. However sent him the link and he has read at least some of the posts ..so I would say its a great result .

Thank You & your GP :-D :welldone:

Dear Fibromites,

I thought I would share some of the help I have found:

Your local Council are a great resource with the help of my GP.

My GP referred me to local counselling service and because I am not mobile a counsellor visits me at home.

I a Taxicard and Blue Badge through the local council with my GP's help.

I am now in the process of applying for carer to help me with my grooming and self care on on a daily basis and help me get out of the house once a week Adult social care for the local council.

My husband has been my carer for the last seven years I have just registered him with carer centre with the local council so he is supported.

I am in the process of finding if I can have physio at home.

I hope this helps fellow Fibromites that are immobile like me.

Thank you so much for posting these! I was diagnosed on Thursday and left the room with a small booklet feeling as though it was my fault and with no further support ..... The advice " get more exercise", and not told how I might manage this when I am in so much pain most of the time.

I am very scared, not sure what the future holds anymore and still crying intermittently because of the shock. I wish the consultant had been like your doctor!

Hi Geek-Girl

Welcome to the forum.

I'm so sorry your consultant was so horrible, unfortunately a lot of us have encountered this kind of behavious during our diagnosis. This forum hold so much information and tips on what can help from actual sufferers so have a look around and give a few things a try - you never know what you may find that helps.

In terms of exercise I would just take things very slowly and only do what you feel you can. Some people find they can't do any exercise at all and others find they can do gentle walking/cycling/swimming etc. But it's more about what suits your body individually as a person and what your body can handle.

Hi, Tried to follow the link but came up with adverts about Fibro . Any chance of showing me another way to access this please as it sounds very interesting from what others have posted.

It would seem that all linkys to HighView Surgery are dead. I tried Googlying and altho a number of them came up, when I clicked on them they all came up with the Error 404 Page Not Found message.

Searching for the GP that is mentioned in relation to FM, this linky says that she is leaving in July 2013 http://www.doctoralia.co.uk/consultant/ ... o-12154501 which could explain why all the sheets etc relating to FM are no longer available :-? :-? :-?

Hi guys

I may just be your Knight in Shining Armour riding in on my noble steed lol. I saved the documents on my desktop. It won't let me load them onto here as I have them saved as a PDF :(

If anyone wants me to e-mail them PM me your e-mail address and I'll happily forward them to you.

Moderators are you able to post these documents as a thread if I send them to you?

Fluppy

I've e-mailed them to you. Just hope there is someway you can get them posted on here as they really are great info sheets, so glad I saved them now.

In the meantime I don't mind forwarding to anyone who wants them.
