Hello, I've had fibromyalgia for 6 years now but it got real bad 2 years ago. My gp thought I had m.s as I developed tremors and lots of symptoms sufford by patients with m.s. but afterwas no an m.r.I scan they discovered no lesions on my spine or brain. I have a high white blood count. Always have flags ul.I suffer with dreadful allergies, terrible pain, tired, some nights have no sleep at all. I get trigeminal neuralgia, that can be awful. However....
My gp has just been to a convention and learnt all about fibromyalgia, at my last visit he told me no pain killers would help me what so ever. He took away my tramadol and naproxin...he did give me 60 cocodamol to last a month (for my back, spodilitus)
He left me on duloxatine (anti depressant) and pregabalin (to stop nerve's from firing) doesnt help much though.
I asked if i could be refurred to a rhumatolagist and he told me there was no point, he would tell me the same thing.
I'm at my wits end. I feel desperate. I can't carry on like this. What can I do? Can anyone suggest anything??
Sorry to moan.....need to get it all out
