Diagnosed today

Postby judipat » Wed Dec 30, 2009 6:58 pm

Hi
I have suspected I had fibro for some time now as I have a friend who also has it and after reading a lot of the posts on this site - it further convinced me.
Anyway, I have seen the rheumi today and he has confirmed it. He thinks I also have obstructive sleep apnea and spontaneous arthritis. I have to have sleep studies for the former and he is going to contact my GP to discuss other medication. For now he has presribed propranolol for my migraines/headaches and anxiety which I have been having daily. I have to go back and see him after the sleep studies.
I have felt so crap for the last two months after suffering crash migraines and ending up in hos pital as they thought I was haemorraging or had had a stroke. I have also been off wok for about five weeks and to be honest, the thought of going back is terrifying me.
Although the confirmation/diagnosis was not that much of a shock - I still feel quite numb and upset. I just hope that I am going through a particularly bad phase and once I get on the right meds etc, things might get better.
I'm really glad to have found this forum.

Hello chick. I've been diagnosed in 2009 too. Hope you manage to control your symptoms and keep well. I'm sorry you have fibromyalgia, no-one seems to understand unless they have it themselves. xxx :welcome: :hugs: :grouphug:
