Just poppped in to say Hello!!

Postby littledotty76 » Tue Mar 01, 2016 1:21 pm

Hi Everyone

New to the site and diagnosed with FM/ME over 6 months ago. Live on the border of Lancashire and Merseyside. Big 40 in a few months, married with 2 teenage sons and a 9 yr old stepson.

It all started after a major spinal fusion for degenerative spondylolisthesis. I just put down to the recovery period, but seriously could not stand the pain all over my body. I slipped further and further into depression. I have had all the medication possible and hated not feeling on this planet with most, so now I only take dihydrocodeine 30mg x4 a day, paracetamol and diazepam 5mg x3 a day, along with lidocaine 5% patches in the most painful areas.
I also have steroid/cortisone injections, which help for a few weeks.

I manage 2 hours a week at college, to get myself out of the house, for the sake of my sanity, to attend a dressmakers course which I absolutely love.

Would love to hear from others on what meds help etc.
