Hello, newly diagnosed....

Postby Tamm1 » Tue Sep 17, 2013 11:50 pm

Hello

My names Tammi, I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia at the beginning of August. My symptoms started in October after what was seemly a bad back at the time which went down hill and spread to all over quite quickly. Originally my first doctor was terrible and after no improvement with a physiotherapist and a cocktail of Tramadol, steroids and morphine, she took me off everything two days before Christmas with a flippant shrug of the shoulders and telling me to come back in a month if it really doesn't improve! I'm sure you can imagine my Christmas was not the best I'd had and in the new year ended up calling a doctor out who prescribed me with morphine. I went to a new doctor in the new year at the same surgery and he has been my saviour. My husband has been with me for every appointment since and have spent nearly an hour with my doctor at some appointments where he has listened, let me cry and explained everything he can about medication, treatments and consultants throughout everything.

I'm currently on Fentanyl, Amitriptyline and in the last couple of weeks come off Venlafaxine and started Duloxetine which was recommended by the Rheumatologist and my god it has been hard. I also have a pain clinic appointment tomorrow which I am really hoping will help.

It's been very up and down physically and mentally and has taken me a while to pluck up the courage to join this forum however I have been visiting for a while now looking for help and advice which has really helped.

Thanks, Tammi x
