hi there my name is Rie, i am 37 and live in Basingstoke. i was diagnosed with fm 5 years ago after feeling that is was all in my head for 5 years previous, numerous tests and different drs appt it took one kind dr to send me to a specialist who diagnose it. since then i have reached stale mate. the dr just keeps giving me pain medication which doesnt work, wont send me to the pain clinic or try anything else, feel as though i am back to square one. to top it all off keep pushing my partner away as think i have just about reached rock bottom... has anyone else had this happen ? what did they do and how did they get past it ???? please can someone give me some advice as it seems that no one undertstands xx

thanks very much for this group,
have tried loads of different doctors and they all think that fm is in the head and this one is the only one that seems to think that he knows what he is talking about, but just doesnt seem to understand that i dont just want pills thrown at me would like help in trying to deal with it all, i work full time and this is just about killing me as he says that i just need to work and keep going , which i can understand to a certain degree as i hurt if i do nothing and hurt if i do but how come none of the medical professionals seems to want to help or understand ? xx :oops:

:welcome: to the forum Rie :wave:

You could try asking your Gp to send you to physio & then ask them to refer you to a pain clinic, just mention to your gp that you have been reading up on fibro & read that physio is meant to help so could you be referred?

:welcome: to the forum rie :wave: :wave:

Sorry to her what you're going thru with GPs, if you haven't seen all the ones at your surgery, it might be worth asking if there is one who has experience of dealing with chronic pain conditions, it might help with finding a more understanding and helpful GP. If there isn't one, it might be worth considering a change of surgery so you can get the help and treatment you need.

There is a lot of advice and info on here, hopefully there will be some useful suggestions for you, so anything you want to know about, just ask and we'll try to help you with it :wave: :wave: :wave:

New to this site,just seen your post i also live in basingstoke and have been having a hard time getting referred back to pain clinic.
I was first seen at our local hospital about 3 years ago in pain clinic,and told i had fibromyalgia because i was managing to cope with pain by using meds i was discharged from their care.In the past six months i have had a major flare up and meds not touching the pain anymore can't even sleep at the moment, i have been back to my GP three times now to ask for a new referal as hospital said they were happy to see me at any time,but GP hasn't been happy to do this just wants to keep upping the pills which isn't helping- starting to wonder whats going on is this a cost cutting exercise?
