Hi

At least now you have a diagnosis you can start to get your head around it. Did your gp start you off on any medication until you actually see the specialist. When you have been in limbo not knowing what is wrong it really messes with your head, i know it took nearly a year to diagnose my fibro and at times i really wondered if i was imagining the syptoms but believe me my pain was very real. Even now if i go out one day or overdo things then i am stuck in bed for 2 days sometimes longer where i am so exhausted and find staying in bed and not moving does help with the pain along with morphine and oxycodone that i need just to take the edge off things. :fingerscrossed: they get it under control soon.

Push for a referral to a pain clinic Susan there may be something that can be done with your meds to make life a little more bearable sometimes a tweak is all that is needed :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed:

Tracie sorry to hear its been confirmed and good luck with the referral :-D :-D
