Help with dealing with medical appointments

Postby Fibroduck Foundation » Tue May 01, 2012 12:38 am

A while ago we wrote a full help pack for patients to use when attending medical appointments. The aim of the pack is to remove much of the stress we as sufferers go through when dealing with medics. The pack also helps limit fibro fog problems on the day. We have had fantastic feedback from both patients and medical staff alike.

The pack contains five seperate downloads:
1. How to use our Fibrodocs
2. Current medications list
3. Notes for consultants treating fibromyalgia (FMS) patients for other conditions
4. Notes for emergency admission for Fibro (tho can be adapted to cover other conditions)
5. Patient’s name: notes for outpatients’ or day-case reception (a detailed doc is available for in-patient admissions)

They can be saved to pc and amended over time as your needs change, they're free and we'd like to make them available to as many patients as possible.

This pack is free to anyone who wants it,
You can download it free direct from our website using this link. The 'fibrodocs' open in Microsoft word but will also work with open office. You simply fill them in ahead of time and take them with you.

(Removed link as does not work anymore, please personal message OP for details)

We hope these help.

Thanks for these, one of the things that is asked about on a regular basis is what someone should do or expect from an appt, so being able to direct them to your info could be a big help for them :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing:

As of now all our free help guides and posters can be downloaded direct from our main website rather than through our store. I gather some people were having problems accessing their downloads so this will resolve that issue. We have also added a printable Fibromyalgia symptoms word search which we hope will help educate non sufferers.

I found the best this was information. Go to your doctors with a list of all your symptoms. He has your history also. Print off some information about fm and take it with you. Talk to him about how you feel about it.

Don't be frightened to ask for a second opinion if you don't agree.

Good luck
