hi to you all

Postby ladytazg » Thu Jul 01, 2010 2:42 pm

hi as you can see im a newbee to this site but not a newbee to pain :D . i will give you a quick run down on my health probs and maybe i might be able to pick your heads for advice and tips on how to help myself.
im 32 female and i live on anglesey from being a child i have had many problems with my bones muscles and tissues but for years i was told they were growing pains so life went on but very painful. at the age of 25 my pains had got so bad the doctors began to belive i was actually in pain, after numerous tests and being stuck with pins i was diagnosed with hypermobility disorder and rhumatoid arthritis i was treated for these conditions with all sorts of drugs in the end after about 5 diffrent tabs they gave me methotrexate and it made my hair fall out and i had an allergic reaction to the methotrexate and had a rash from head to toe so not only was i in pain i was balding spotty and fat from being on the pill because of the methatrexate. this went on for 4 years playing with drugs and trying to find the right combo.
but last year i saw a new doc in our hospital and she has diagnosed me with having fibromyalgia .
i take amatriptalin 25mg every night ,tramadol for pain but they make me sick so some days i take morphine sulphate and arcoxia 90 wich will be changed next week when i go to hospital.
every day from morning till night i ache like you people hear would belive but others dont, but by 5pm my body has given up and i feel awful.
i know stress plays a big part in my life and doing thing basic house work kills me as for walking futher than the shop there is no point in thinking about it.
i am lucky i have a really good husband who takes care of me and allows me to do nothing and he does make my life easier in many ways.
i have a hospital appointment next week and i would like to go armed with info about drugs that work for this condition so i would love to hear what you take for your aches and pains and what i can do to help myself.
sorry for going on but in a nutshell thats my story look forward to hearing from you xx :wave:
