Hey! Newbie alert!

I'm Lubi, I had my diagnosis yesterday after seeing my rheumatology consultant. I was not expecting it and am rather shocked. I was given the ARC leaflet with a promise of a 'pain clinic' referral. I have to see the GP to get a prescription for Amitriptyline.

I have 3 children 2 girls (11, 9) and an Autistic 8 year old son. I'm married to the most patient man ever.

I'm a health care professional who is struggling to see how i can continue doing my job. I feel rather frightened and isolated, I'm assuming this is normal!?

Hi, first time I have posted anything! I was diagnosed last week after 2 years of symptoms..equally a shock for me but the only advice I got was rest every 45 mins at work etc...and get some psychological therapies to help you deal with your stressors as they make your pain worse. I then get a letter from GP before I've had a chance to make an appointment to discuss my diagnosis telling me that I have to self refer to IAPT for talking therapy. That's it ...I mean what am I supposed to do about the IBS, the brain drain, the clumsiness the pains etc etc....yes my life is stressful..husband has severe depression with Aspergers, tried suicide last year at the same time i was made redundant after 21 years along with two small children one who has Aspergers, husband has no job and no support from what little family we have...now what? Talking about it isn't going to reduce them!

I'm guessing I have to make a nuisance of myself to get anywhere so I have another battle to prepare for..but I will not be defeated..I'm coming to terms with what FM means for me and my family..it just taking me a little longer than normal to find a strategy.
Advice from this site so far has been helpful...I'm not giving up! :goodluck1:
