Hello everyone - I'm new (South West Uk)

Postby BusyMumof5 » Wed Jun 15, 2011 7:30 pm

Hello everyone..

I'm a busymumof5, or at least, I used to be!
My symptoms have been getting worse over a period of 3 years now, with me only really finding out about Fibro a year ago then going to the Gp to express my concerns.
It was shrugged off as a 'busy lifestyle' and 'stress'

I am now practically disabled and still not being listened to! (Gp appointment on Friday, NOW my husband is coming in with me and fighting my corner for me.. as I don't have the strength to do this anymore!)

Just recently (Saturday 11th June) I woke up in agony, having not done much at all on Friday I was a little puzzled, but it was sods law I spent one of my child's 5th birthday in agony!!!
It felt like I had pulled each and every muscle, every step was pure agony and I felt bruised all over!

I am looking for ANY helpful hints and tips on making a GP listen, I even tried a different GP who said 'What's the point in diagnosing something that can't be treated?'

I feel like a fraud, posting on a forum when I am not diagnosed!
I am also under going testing for Endometriosis, I've had swabs now ultrasounds now being referred to a gynecologist and possibly even laparscopic surgery!
I have also read just recently though that Endometriosis is linked with the likes of CFS / Fibromyalgia!

Looking forward to chatting to you all ~ Gentle hugs xx

:welcome: to the forum. :wave:
When you see your GP on Fri you should ask about fibro have you mentioned it before to them? It can take a long time to get a dx of fibro as they have to rule out other things, fibro does not show up in any tests so it will always be last on the list.
You could ask your gp to refer you to a Rheumy.

:goodluck1: with your app...keep us updated. :hugs:

Thanks hun.. I used to be chronically anaemic and she does keep testing my blood, each and every time nothing shows up and each and every time she repeats the bloods in a few weeks and still nothing ever shows up!

This time my husband will come in with me and voice it all because I am tired of fighting and being made out to be a lier or hypocondriact x

:welcome: to the forum :wave:

There's not really much I can add to what shaz has already said. For tips on how to manage with something like FM, the best thing to do is look thru the posts on here as it affects us all so differently and we each have our own ways of dealing with it. And of course you can always ask about anything you want to know.

Hello and WELCOME! I'm new to the forum too but have had fibromyalgia for well over 20yrs, my 1st GP wasn't very sympathetic and told me it was all in my head ( he had said the same thing about my chronic stomach pains and they turned out to be Crohns disease :( ) Life sure does like to give us a challenge...lol
