Hi All,

I wanted to introduce myself as I am gonna need as much help as I can get! I have been experiencing terrible fatigue and muscle spasms / twitches for a long time now (among other weird stuff!) and I have just been told by a rheumatologist that I have Fibromyalgia. However, the rheumatologist has not told me anything about fibromyalgia or what I need to to to get better!!

I already take Amitriptyline for a herniated disc and my GP has told me just to up my dose. I get the impression he thinks my symptoms are "psychological", but the muscle jolts are def not psychological! If I really fo have FM then that's fine, but I need to know what to do to make myself feel better! Can anyone suggest any books that I can buy or give me any advise on what I should be doing as at the moment I feel pretty awful!

Kind regards,
Poppy

Hi Poppy, Well you have the diagnoises which is a good thing. The best advice I can offer you is to read as much as you can from the internet that seems to be the best place for information. You can get a NHS leaflet explaing Fibromyalgia.

I have to say I have found this forum incredibley valuable as, as you can see we are all experiencing the same and similar things. I take amitriptyline and have just upped my does from 20mg a day to 30 but, was advised by the pain clinic to take up to 50mg a day but, I was not prepared to do that.

Hi Poppy :welcome: to the forum, lots of us were left in the same position as you following diagnoses and I tend to think the best place for information is the internet, there are a lot of books out there and if you read through the forum you will find threads were people have named the books they found the most helpful, hope you feel better soon :hugs: :hugs: :hugs:
