Hi Everyone my name is VECTRA and from time to time I post on here some handy tips, well im having a bad time with my fibro at the minute BUT im fighting with my gloves on to get better treatment for myself as ive had really bad flares, with the shoulder pains, neck, ribs, and lower left leg, lower back, and severe cramps, all at once its horrendous. So I called at the Dr and she has sent me for some assessments to the Musculoskeletal Service at a centre near me can take a while to come through ive been told depending on what they decide is wrong they then send for you and treat you accordingly. This might be to see a specialist or physio etc ive been put on amytriptalene 10mg for now and codrydramol for pain but I usually walk a bit but at the minute its quite hard, so im getting myself a walking machine for the home to use when I can hopefully everyday for 1/2 an hour Ive looked at ARGOS and they've a good walking machine for £299 it should have been £700 but its in the sale so im trying to find where I can place it for the maximum use, as winter sets in going out may not always be ok also im joining YOGA and meditation and pilates as well when im mobile hopefully soon.I know flares come and go and you have to rest accordingly as I will BUT we are the ones in pain and we have to stay POSITIVE if we don't look after ourselves who will, and take each day as it comes.My partner who has been severly ill and had 2 major operations in 2 weeks has taken a lot of looking after BUT we look after each other as best we can he understands my complaint a little as he has polymyalgia himself so he knows its not easy STRESS is not good for FIBRO either but my partner is on the mend its been 9 weeks since his ordeal and the nurses come to change his wound daily so we're on the up & up now I am a fighter when it comes to my health and im not giving up with the Dr till I get better management of my illness however long it takes .
