Hi
I have been unwell since february. General pain in arms, shoulders hips knees legs and also sole of left foot, i have been on anti inflammitories painkillers varying from paracetamol tramadol mst and now fentalyn 25mg patches and oromorph as a top up. I am finding its just not helping at all and i'm struggling so much with my legs i can barely lift yhem enough to get my clothes on even getting in an out of the car is just too painful. Has any one any ideas on what else i can do or what helps them that i can try.,im just so frustrated. Fed up with being back and forwards to the doctor rvery week just to gave my meds increased slightly.

:welcome: to the forum mililly :cow-wave: :cow-wave: :cow-wave:

Sorry to hear things haven't been too good for you since February. Is that when your problems first started appearing or have you been experiencing them for longer than that???

Soaking in a warm bath can help relax and ease some of the pain and stiffness. For an area that feels particularly bad, putting a hottie bottie or heated wheaty bag on it can help, and TENs machines can make a difference to some.

You could also have a look thru some of the posts and topics on this board as it's full of suggestions that others have found helpful, it might give you some other things to try out.

Hope you can get some easing soon, it is frustrating, draining and wearing being in pain all the time. I can't remember the last day that I had where I wasn't in pain, and I've been living with symptoms and problems for just over 13 years :( :( :( :( :(

Hi
Yeah just came on without warning. Not been unwell or anything. I do have a wheaty for my back but tried tens and it didnt really work. Would love a hot bath but i have so much trouble with my legs and arms i really struggle to get in and out..i have just booked some acupuncture so im hoping this might work..i have loads trouble getting dressed as i cant bend down it hurts hips and groin too much. From reading this forum i dont think im going to get rid as so many people just seem to put up with it..

Acupuncture can be helpful for some, hopefully it will be so for you :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed: Has fibro been suggested as a possible cause of your problems and symptoms??

Getting in and out of the bath can be a struggle, esp on the really bad days. Have you looked into whether there might be anything available to help make things a little easier for you to use it??

Hi

They are pretty sure thats what it is and on reading i do seem to have alot of the symptoms. Its just frustrating going from a nice healthy person to a virtually disabled one within a week. Back to specialist 12th june hopefuly to find out for definate.

It is frustrating how it affects you, esp when your mind keeps telling your body to do things like you used to be able to do :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm: It does take time to get used to things and find the right way for you manage how life has become. As you learn more about your condition tho, things will become a little easier to deal with.

Mmm im not so sure about that at this moment. Maybe when i can get the meds right or at least lose some of the leg and groin pain. Just hard when you cant bend down or pick things up.

Thank you for the replies though.
