Services in Cornwall

Hi, I've recently moved to Cornwall and would like to find a GP, consultant or pain clinic who have an interest in the treatment and support of people with fibromyalgia. I am a nurse who has lived with this awful condition for 20 years ++. Been there, done it, bought the t-shirt. I'm struggling at at present and have no one to help me. Many thanks

  • Hi Jasmine, welcome to our forum. I can't help with Drs etc. as I live in Somerset, but would like to just say hi and I'm sure you'll get plenty of information from our members who live in Cornwall.

    I hope you will feel better soon.

    Love GJ xx

  • Hi Jasmine, and as gerry said! welcome to our forum :-) I'm not sure what the services are like in Cornwall though I would think if you are anywhere near Truro there must be rheumys and pain management teams at Trelisk. If however you're not into what I call deepest Cornwall, there is a very good team which I use at the Royal Devon and Exeter and there may well be good ones at Derriford, in Plymouth. I have lots of friends in Cornwall and will make some enquiries for you! and I am sure there are members here who live in Cornwall and will be able to help you.

    Sending positive vibes your way :-)

  • Hello Jasmine I have Just had a quick look and found that there are 5 support groups in cornwall. If you click onto the yellow butterfly at the top of the page, then click onto the web site,you will find support groups on the left hand side. hugs sue

  • Thank you so much, all of you, for your welcomes and replies. I'm in Wadebridge, therefore pretty much central to Devon & Cornwall. I will make some enquires as I do need a review........meds not working etc. I have a stressful job, and that doesn't help, so I need to make some changes there. It's all about taking control back from this horrible condition. Hope to get to know you all in the coming weeks. A MASSIVE THANK YOU x

  • Welcome to the site Jasmine it's a great site and every one willing to help .look forward to reading your posts, sorry can't help you re doctors as I li in London take care, gentle hugs.......Dee x

  • Thank you Dee. I do try to stay upbeat and positive, try to live a normal life with drug support and by trying to pace myself. Life has been a challenge of late, and it's all caught up with me, resulting in a bad flare up of my main symptoms. I've always been a tad in denial, but I think it's time for a medical review. I will pester my GP for such a referral. Can't go on feeling so poorly .......x
