Hello to all...Newbie Here

Postby swainy » Fri Sep 04, 2009 12:39 pm

Hi all.
My names David from SW London, I was diagnosed yesterday as a probable FM sufferer tho i have yet to see the reumatologist (waiting appointment)
I think ive had it for around 2 years but its just recently that its got bad.
If anyone has any tips for pain management in my neck and upper arms I'd love to hear them.
I'm going to Vietnam for 3 weeks on Sunday and I'm now worried my dream holiday is going to be ruined as i feel so ill all the time,but still its got to be better being ill there than sitting at my desk at work in Euston...
The docs given me Amytriptylin to help me sleep I take 10mg a night but all it does is make me more aggitated so any tips there would be appreciated..
All the best
David

Hi David and welcome to the forum... have a look at the treatments section fo rideas on what others are taking, although we all react differently so what works for one doesn't for another. Some people thrive in a warmer climate so maybe your trip abroad will do you the world of good. ((xx))

I would talk to your GP about trying a different med, even if it's just a short course of a sleeping med (e.g. zopiclone, zolpidem) to help you sleep deeper and not get so badly affected by jet-lag.

Heat pads can also be very helpful and are transportable.

Hi & :welcome:
I use tiger balm on my neck and shoulders it doesn't get rid of the pain but gives some relief.
Hope you have a great time on holiday.

Thanks to everyone for the advice.Just been to chemist and got some heat patches so hoping that they will give some relief.
I also got some Dextrose tabs for an energy boost had a couple already and they do seem to give you that little bit more get up and go.
I'll report back in 3 weeks and let you know if i find a miricle cure from a vietnamese witch doctor..
All the best
