new to the site and saying hi

Postby gillyp » Mon Nov 01, 2010 5:28 pm

I was diagnosed about 3 years ago with FM, since then I have good days and bad, sometimes I even get weeks when its not too bad. But then Zap back it comes and I have pain all over. I struggle to work even thought its a desk job my hands and arms hurt using the computer is not good and my concentration levels are bad. Trying to live with this thing is horrible and I would love to find alternative medicine that actually works as I hate loading my system up with drugs !

I have read soooooo much stuff on line about what I should do and what to avoid and what pain killers to use but nothing really works for me. I really want to find somebody who really knows about this stuff who can help me and guide me on the best thing to do. I am convinced stress plays a bit part and my job is full-on stress most of the time so that's probably not helping.

I am about to go back AGAIN to my gp who will probably just prescribe another pain killer. I just want some good advise - can anyone help ??

:welcome: Hi Gilly. Glad you have joined us. Have you tried a tens machine for the pain. I have been giving one a go and it seems to work. It's just a matter of getting the settings right.

I have not tried one but as the pain is in fingers, wrists, arms, shoulders, neck and feet - not sure where to place the thing first ?
Thanks
