fed up with pain.

Postby Wakeylass » Thu Aug 30, 2018 3:56 pm

Hi new on here but glad I've found somewhere to talk. I've yet to be diagnosed but gp says she's pretty certain i have fibromyalgia. Just going through the motions of having everything ruled out. It's been pretty rotten year from the outset with been hospitalised with tonsilitis then diagnosed with diabetes. I'm May I was in a road traffic accident but not too badly injured.most days I'm in pain.it shifts about today it's my power back, hope and knees. Yesterday my elbows and neck. I've been off work for ten weeks now and hate it. Gp gave me naproxen but it gave me stomach pains. So now on codine which does help a bit sometimes. What meds are you all on.?

Where you prescribed Omeprazole with the Naproxen to stop the stomach upset?

Unlikely to help with fibromyalgia though.

Hi there,
I am having quite a bad flare up atm. I was put on Gabapentin 6 weeks ago but it was not working for me. Pregabalin was prescribed instead at lowest dose (75mg twice a day). I've been taking them for almost 3 weeks now and the pain (all over at different times) has been getting worse. On contacting surgery, I've been told I need to see a dr to get dose increased but I can't get in until 16th. (I need help now!) I live in Cornwall, England and am finding it a struggle to get support. Dr did explore use of LDN a few months ago but this was dismissed on grounds of being too expensive.
Have today and tomorrow off work so am visiting surgery and plan to speak to receptionist as soon as they open this morning (08.15) to get an appt today.
The flare up has also increasewd my IBS symptoms so am now struggling with diarrhoea as well - lovely!
Any advice well appreciated!
Thanks

Hi Lisa,
They got me into the emergency clinic and I saw a paramedic who had to check stuff out with my GP anyway! They've agreed to up the dosage to 150mg twice daily. Collecting script in a bit. Had a call from the phone number I used yesterday to join a support group in Liskeard, Cornwall (15 mins by car from where I live in Saltash). They no longer operate so that means the nearest is St Austell. They don't even appear to have a group in Plymouth! Really need a support group now as pain is so bad. How are you?

Sorry Lisa, I got your Naproxen mixed up with Naltrexone (as in LDN)
