Hello all!

My name is Hayley im from Surrey and im so glad ive found this forum! Ive been living with headaches, pressure behind the eye, jaw pain and clicking, earache, dizzy spells, panic attacks and knots in the muscles in my neck and shoulders for about 6 months now and ive seen a million different people none of whom have said for sure what the problem is! I went to the doctor when i was first concerned about the headaches as i was completely panicking that it was something wrong with my brain but she just put it down to panic attacks and that i was depressed/stressed. But ive seen two doctors now, none have suggested an mri or anything and ive found them to be pretty unhelpful as i didnt want to just take painkillers/anti depressants, i want to get to the root of the problem! ive tried chiropractors and tmj specialists and am currently seeing a lady in Harley st who practices myofascial release which ive found the most beneficial. I just wondered if this could be FM or is it more likely to be myofasical pain syndrome? i just want to find a professional who can finally diagnose me as im losing money from taking days off work with head pain and generally aching feeling and its really affecting my day to day life. Sorry for the essay introduction! i just wanted to make sure im in the right place and if not any suggestions on what i can do next?!

Thankyou!
:)

Hi Hayley and :welcome: to the forum, sorry to hear you are suffering at the moment. It isnt possible for us to say whether or not you have FM, yo need to ask for a referral to a rhuematologist as they are normally the ones who will diagnose you. That said some GP's feel confident enough to do so as well.

A sympathetic GP is also a must and so if yours isnt I would be thinking of looking for one that is :yikes:

Glad you've found us and look forward to getting to know you, let us know how you get on :hugs: :hugs: :wave:

:wave: and :welcome: Hayley. Sorry to hear how things are for you at the moment. As denys has said, the usual way to get a dx is via referral to a Rheumatologist from your GP. I suffer with some of the things you've mentioned, but they can also be symptoms of other conditions as well :? Is there another GP at your surgery that might refer you on, to try and help you get things sorted??

:welcome: to the forum Hayley. I am from surrey also.
Ask your GP to refer you to a Rheumy, they are the ones that normally DX fibro then they leave it up to the GP to carry on treatment. :goodluck2: :wave:
