Hi I'm New

Postby carolnotts » Thu Apr 29, 2010 9:47 am

Hi my name is Carol i am new to the forum i was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in March this year although my new GP thinks i may have been suffering from it for 4 years but i was just brushed to the side by A&E at our local hospital and my doctor. I have some good days but for the past two-three days i have been having a crap time but it is that time of the month just now aswell :(

I will be grateful for any advice and tips anyone has to help me get my life back to some kind of normality as i am on sertraline for depression and propranolol for anxiety and panic attacks. My GP says that i have just to take paracetamol and or cocodamol for the pain.

I'm glad i have found this forum xx

Hi Carol and :welcome:
I have had this damned thing for what seems like a lifetime, although I was only diagnosed 2 years ago. I take 30mg Amitriptyline and 2 x 500mg paracetamol every 4 hours, although this dumbs down the pain some of the time I'm never pain free. I also take Cocodimol when the pain gets too bad, my doctor wont prescribe stronger pain killers as they can be addictive. I take warm baths which help to ease my pain. everyone has differing levels and types of pain and deal with it differently. There are others on here who will be able to tell you what they do to ease their pain, but for now sending you gentle :hugs: hope you feel better soon.

Hi Raine and thank you for the welcome and gentle hugs i appreciate them. I think i have lived with the pain for so long now i am used to it and it has become a part of life i took painkillers yesterday but they didn't help any. I am so glad i found this site though and felt better reading through the Fibrofog some of the stories made me giggle and is good to know i am not the only one who has days like that xx

:welcome: I haven't found any meds that totally take away the pain. Tramadol was quite good but the high dose meant I hardly had a life and was "away with fairies" most of the time (add that to fibrofog!! cheaper than a good bottle of wine lol (I have a drink problem - I like it but it doesn't like me !!). G.P. put me back on diclofenac 2 x 75 but has just taken them off me because of stomach problems (op. for GERD) and now I have Ibroprofen and amitriptyline. The amitriptyline (3 at night) helps me get some sleep but the Ibroprofen doesn't touch the pain. So after that ramble I'm afraid I can't really suggest anything that might be any good to you :dunno: Don't know about anyone else but since I started taking all these meds. the sales in prunes and sprouts have rocketed (and they don't work either) and sales in toilet paper plummeted - if you get what I mean :lol: :lol:

I defo don't need the sprouts and prunes infact i am going to the docs on monday to see if i have IBS. My doc told me i couldn't take ibuprofen because it may cause a stomach ulcer so i have to stick with the paracetamol for the time being but they aren't helping the pain in my neck and shoulders and back so i will see her about that when i go aswell.

feel free to ramble anytime :hugs: x
