Hi all i am new here and in a really confused state so please excuse me if i dont make any sense or start blabbering. Any help would be very much appreciated...

Ive had constant problems for years and just thought i was basically going mad until my mum (she was diagnosed 2/3 years ago with fibromyalgia) told me to go to the doctors because i was constantly moaning of pain,stiffness,exhaustion,forgetfulness...the list goes on.

So i went to my doctor who has diagnosed me with fibromyalgia. He basically told me theres no cure and to just take normal paracetamol and get over it :cry: I left the surgery feeling pretty upset and absolutely baffled by it all.

My mum is angry with the way the doctor has dissmissed me! He didnt even tell me in full terms what fibromyalgia was and i have had to look most of it up on the internet. I dont really want to ask my mum to much because i already now she feels completely run down and shattered and i dont want to give her more added pressure by asking lots of questions or having her worry about me.

I cannot carry on like this, I feel like im losing myself and no amount of over the counter paracetamol is going to help. What am i supposed to do? I have 3 children and a house to run,How am i supposed to do this when im struggling to keep myself going at the best of times. My husband is doing his best to help but he works long hours so im pretty much on my own most of the time.

Im in so much pain,Im completely exhausted/feel like i never sleep (even though i do)and simple things like getting up with the children in the morning and taking them to school is becoming a daily nightmare and thats before i even try to challenge the cleaning (which really isnt happening).

Should the doctor be taking this more seriously? Is there medications i should be being offered to help me? What should i do next?

:welcome: to the forum salena. I've moved you into "Where To Say Hello" as you'll probably get more responses here.

This linky will take you to the NHS pages about FM

There are various meds used to try and manage FM, have a look at the stuff on there, as well on here as there is a lot of useful info and advice that might be helpful to you.

I think you need to see if there is another gp you can see in our practice as the one you've mentioned does not sound at all fibro-friendly. Having an understanding gp can help make such a difference to how you manage with the condition. If there isn't a suitable one at your current surgery, then it might be an idea to see if there is someone at another practice who is more understanding.

Have a look thru the stuff on here, and anything you want to know, just ask and we'll try to help you with it :grouphug: :grouphug:


If your dog doesn't like someone, then you probably shouldn't either
