Hi all I'm lucky that I manage my fibro well and its rare for me to have flare ups. This week I am suffering the worst pain ever in my face. Went to gp on Wednesday and she said neuralgia and prescribed carbamazepine. I've had it before and it eased the pain on that occasion. But yesterday the pain had worsened to the point of making me extremely agitated and in tears. My hubby took me back to gp yesterday evening and she now thinks I might have temples arteritis. I have to have blood test done on Monday. And she prescribed diazepam to get me through the next week.thank God she did I'm off my head on all the meds but at least the pains in the background for now.I read up about the TA and I sincerely hope its not that it can cause blindness and I don't fancy steroids. So I'm hoping all fingers crossed that its neuralgia and the pain goes away and then its only thing fibro pain which I have embraced as being part of me and I know what I have to do to keep pain at a tolerable level
