Diagnosed at last!

Postby SoulShirl » Mon Dec 03, 2012 10:19 pm

Hi, after 2 years ive finally been diagnosed. What a relief to know its not all in my mind.

Have been prescribed with steroids but really not sure if they are the answer or what I want.
Am sure it will take time to find the right medication to help.

So glad to have found this forum I think im going to be a frequent visitor.

:wave: :wave: and :welcome: SoulShirl, glad you've finally got a name for the things that have been affecting you.

You'll find lots of info, advice and support on here, hopefully you'll find some of it useful :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

It's unusual to be prescribed steroids for FM at any time, but esp just as you've been dx'd :-? :-? :-? This linky might be helpful http://www.nhs.uk/conditions/fibromyalg ... ction.aspx As well as telling you more about FM, it has info about some of the meds used to try and manage it. With you being uncertain about the steroids, having a look then going to see your GP to see what might be suitable for you to try might come up with something you feel more comfortable about taking.

Just ask if there's anything you want to know about and we'll try to help you with it :wave: :wave: :wave:

:wave: Hi Denys

It was the gp, ive only been given them for 7 days then im to see him again after 4 days off them. Im going to ask him for something different, I need something that will help me sleep. I can snooze on the sofa but once I get to bed I can lay awake for hours :(
Also need meds where I can still enjoy a nice glass of wine at the weekend - I usually only have 2 half glasses at night and on an occassional night out may have a little more.
At the moment I dont feel too severe with fibro but its gotton progressivley worse over the last 2 years

Am so glad to have found such a great forum
