Hi there, Ive just joined, was going to lurk a bit but then thought better of it!

I am pretty much certain ive had symptoms of FM for about 2 years, and definitely sure for the last 12 months, I went to my GP 2 weeks ago to tell her all about my aches and pains and fatigue, and i think i must be one of the very few folk who have not had to try to convince their GP, as it was her who mentioned FM, she sent me home with a script for Amitriptiline (sp), told me to go do some research and come back in a month.

Now I know it sounds like she fobbed me off a bit with the research bit, but I have medical training so she trusts me not to go all psycho on the research and come back and tell her ive got some sort of tropical disease.

Any way, im 2 weeks in, i have noticed some slight changes, like when i am awake i actually feel awake for a good spell and not just a minute or 2 then need to dive under the covers, a good day (like yesterday) feels really good and I felt like i could tackle anything, but to bring me down with a bump I am suffering today!

So that is me so far, Im sure ill have more to say once i get use to the place and the diagnosis!

You will be sorry I joined as i tend to never shut up xx

:welcome: to our little FibroFamily TNK* :cow-wave: :cow-wave: :cow-wave:

2 weeks on Amitriptyline and already feeling like you're a step or 2 closer to being vaguely huu~mon is good going :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing: With you having medical training, you'll probably be aware that it can be about a month for the full benefits from Amis to start making their presence really felt, so hopefully there will be even more nice changes in the next couple of weeks for you :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed:

As you get used to living with FM, you'll find the right way for you to pace yourself so that you can do things without {hopefully} too much being taken out of you. It is a bit fiddly and frustrating to start with, but once you find your groove it can help.

Anything you want to know about, all you need to do is ask, it doesn't usually take too long for someone to :penguin: :penguin: :penguin: :penguin: along with a reply :cow-wave: :cow-wave: :cow-wave:
