Thank you for your Hi (as a new member).
I'll write more later but should rest now.
I heard men with FM are in a minority - Can I add to the minority ?
I got a diagnosis of 'probably fibromyalgia' from a rheumatologist in Nov / Dec after a US internet doctor suggested FM when my wife put in symptoms and paid cash (and ankylosing spondolitis was ruled out by an MRI scan). So far Amitryplaline worked for a few months. I then moved to Imipramine. Recently this failed to help so I was moved to Gabapentin. I'm signed off work at present as the side effects were suggested to be bad and have proved so. I'll see the GP tomorrow and try and get a route forward (as I'd quite like to go back to work). All was mild until the recent stress and subsequent flare-up. Either the Imipramine was having an effect or I've got a lot worse suddenly.
Now what did I say about resting later ?

Hi & :welcome:

Piers....

I chat to many males with fibro each day, if you would like to be forwarded to some please PM me and i'll sort it out but sayin that there are a few males here on the forum to help and support you...

Stress/trauma can trigger flare ups and even make the fibro worse so it could maybe that not the meds but best see GP
