hi
I am new to this site and I apologize if I have posted in the wrong bit!!...brain fog :crazy:
Quick run done abt myself...50yr old female :wink: Essex Uk based...working part time...
I have had problems for the past 5 to 6 years....
Aches/pains/headaches/sleep issues/IBS..and lots of other bits x pieces!
all bloods have been clear...checked every 6 months or so....
I have had loads of different odd blood tests also!
I have had apt with lupus clinic,,,nope not lupus....
a rhuemy, who said i was a bored middle aged housewife! and nothing was wrong with me,..... ...
and a month ago gp sent me to the CFS/ME clinic...phew...
anyway the cfs consultant was very good and she said I am referring you to the chronic pain clinic..as you have more pain than fatigue so it is not cfs/me... :roll:
Consultant also said they will be able to diagnose fibromyalgia at the chronic pain clinic....is this correct?....i am staring to loose my mind as i am going round and round in circles.. :dunno:
I am so sorry for the long post :D

So can anyone out there help with some good advice?...
lilypad :D

:wave: lilypad :welcome: to the forum :chicken-dance:

It is possible that the pain clinic people may be able to give you a dx when you go. These clinics seem to vary from one place to another, so it's not easy to say definitely what will or won't happen :dunno: :dunno:

Before your appt, make some notes about your symptoms, possible triggers, how long things last and anything else you think might be helpful in getting to the bottom of your pain and symptoms and take it all with you when you go for your appt. It's something a lot of us do so we remember what it is we need to discuss, also add any questions that you need answering. And if possible, have someone go with you, not only is it good for moral support, and extra pair of ears with you will help with remembering what was said.

There is a lot of info on here, if you have a look at some of the other posts you might find something that is of help to you.

Thanks for the welcome and info...I have been having a good look around the site and cant believe all the people that i have so much in common with regarding my symptoms :yikes:
I have gp appointment later today to discuss what the me/cfs consultant said...so im wondering if gp can also dx me, if she knows anything abt fibro that is.. :dunno:
gp hadnt thought abt fibro i dont suppose...
i shall let you know, not that i want a dx but it would help as i think my family...hubby etc think im going mad :crazy:
also i have been made to feel like a hypochondriac by various gp's over the past few years :facepalm:

Your gp may feel able to dx you, or may feel it's better for you to see a specialist for a dx. If she's unsure about FM, suggest that she looks on the NHS Choices site as there is are pages about FM, symptoms, treatments etc etc. From there, she may be able to start helping you try to get these symptoms under some control.

You're definitely not a hypochondriac, chronic pain is very real :grouphug: :goodluck2: with your appt, hope it's the start of you finding the reason for your pain and things :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed:

Hope your appointment went OK and your GP knew what she was about :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed: we've all been made to feel fraudulent at times the people/professionals who do so arent worth bothering with :hugs: :hugs: :hugs: :hugs:
