Hello All,
My name is Donna and I'm a newbie to the site. I work full time as an IT consultant (which can be very challenging some days). I have a civil partner named Pam, who keeps me sane. I started a blog a few months ago just to have somewhere to vent really. It kind of a Fibroblog and a mix of general life. If you would like to read it it is at http://onewomansview.net/
I'm not sure what I'm expecting from joining just that I think I need a bit wider circle.
Looking forward to some good conversations.
-Donna

Hi

I've recently been "diagnosed" with FM. I say diagnosed, but it was more me going to my GP (yet again) and suggesting I think I may be suffering from FM and her agreeing and suggesting I try Amitryptiline, which I have just started at 10mg at night. Don't get me wrong, I like my GP and think she does take me seriously but you never know in the five minutes you get with them.

I am confused though and not really sure if I am right about having FM as a lot of people on here seem to be a lot lot worse than I feel, but when I read through the sypmtoms of FM it was like reading my life. It made me feel happier knowing there was something to justify how I felt and that I wasn't just a hypocondriac or just plain making it up (as I feel people do think). I still don't think a lot of people will take FM seriously, so don't know how to deal with that.

Basically, I ache all the time and have achy pain in hands, fingers, wrists, neck, shoulders, back, hips and knees and feet. I generally feel tired all the time and could sleep for england. I don't have trouble sleepings I do tend to sleep all night, but wake up feeling just as tired as when I went to bed but in so much pain sometimes my husband has to push me out of bed to get me going. I'm also very lethargic when it comes to doing anything to be honest, I don't go out much anymore as I find myself tiring quickly. Then I have additional symptoms of allergies and sinus problems, migraines and have a headache most days and get up to two or three migraines a month.

I am still working full time though I do struggle with work and then housework when I return home. I will be speaking to my boss next week about my diagnosis so not sure what will happen after that. I can't afford to reduce my hours, so I suppose there isn't any real solution there.

Thanks for letting me go on and any help or advice would be greatly received.

Thanks
Melanie

Melanie, workwise, you should be covered by the Equalities Act, which means employers are legally required to make reasonable adjustments to a staff members' work environment when the staff member advises them of their illness/disability. When you speak to your boss, ask how this applies to you, if your boss doesn't know, then your union rep (if you have one)or occy health type people should be able to advise you. If they are unsure, the Disability Employment Advisor (DEA) based in JobCentrePlus should be able to help out. This linky tells you more about the DEA viewtopic.php?f=11&t=10001[/quote]

Thank you. I will read up on this. I'm lucky that I work for the NHS and they are usually quite good and have a dedicated Occy Health Department.
