Hi, my names amanda, Im from NI!
Was diagnosed with fibro a couple of months back after years of trouble, nerve pain, sensitivity then i was floored with staggering pain mainly upper body and some hip, and constant tiredness. Its been pretty sucky so far.
I've recently found out my neck curves the wrong way, which is not a brucey bonus! lol!
Im here to look for tips and advice.
Nice to meet you all!

Hi Amanda.

Welcome to the forums.

Sorry to hear of your troubles, especially it all coming to Fibro after all the other stuff and I expect you can handle the pain (given your history of it) OR the fatigue but not both at the same time...
You don't get anything for a pair... not in this game... (a Bruce Forsythe-ism... sorry, couldn't resist)

Well, you've come to the right place. Many on here have a very good knowledge of working and living with Fibro as well as all kinds of related things, work-arounds and benefits/healthcare advice so if you can't find any answers in existing threads just throw it out there and you'll get answers pretty soon (they're good like that)

Take care, I'll see you around and have a good one!

Pain can get quite horrendous at times, haven't been managing too well this last 3/4 weeks but hopefully when all the meds build up it'll be ok, I put on a major front though as i hate people thinking I'm after sympathy!
Have a few building up
lyrica 75mg morning and evening
cymbalta 60mg evening
naproxen twice a day
cocodamol 30/500mg when needed
codrydramol 30/500 for a change
tramadol when needed
baclofen three times daily

If it doesn't work we'll have to move onto something stronger! Yikes!

Hoping it settles soon though!
