Gave in and an update may be TMI

Postby pinky1 » Fri Oct 19, 2012 4:35 am

Went to see my go last week as I want managing with the pain without some type of meds. So we spoke and decided to try 3 2mhs diazepam a day for the muscle spasms. And just. Really low dose of co codamol because of my previos addiction to them. Although she trusts that this was a problem a had a long while ago. The diazepam has certainly been helping with the muscle spasms up until a couple of days ago. I started my period yesterday (my cycles are getting shorter) and I find my pain is always worse just before and during my period. I've just had another smear this week as I had abnormal cells a year ago so they've been doing them every six months. I've been getting loads of unusual discharge for a year now (sorry for the TMI especially if men are reading) I had swabs done a while ago and they were normal but after I have birth I tore badly and have been left with a small hole 'down there' which hasn't healed, so I had swabs done from that. Hoping nothing sinister shows up.
I was on diazepam a few years ago for 7/8 years, 5mg, 3 times a day and I'm pretty sure they didn't make me so tired. But that could possibly be the fibro yeah?
Also saw the physio two days ago. He was lovely but said I was obviously well read on fibro and couldn't really help me out much more. He said he was impressed at how well I had seemed to accept the diagnosis. He did talk about pacing, mayn't keeping an activity diary and monitoring etc. Also we talked about swimming ( although I did tell him I love swimming I jut don't have a reliable babysitter to go)

Anyway, he said I didn't need to go back unless I felt there was other problems that came up. I asked if I should be having a diagnosis by a rheumatologist but he said if he thinks its fibro, my GP has diagnosed fibro then it's fibro and all a rheumy would do is confirm this.

Anyway thank if you managed to read all that

Glad you are managing well with less meds Pinky, :fingerscrossed: all the problems over periods will sort itself out. I think its quite common for an increase in pain before etc. The fatigue may well be fibro and not the diazapam :fingerscrossed: you manage to get out to swim a bit more :-) :-) :-) :-)
