Hello everyone. I just wanted to introduce myself as a newbie. I live in South Wales and have a dog and cat for company. My dog is Poppie, West Highland White aged 7 and I have a ginger full tabby cat called Tiggs, she is aged 6 and they are firm friends along with me.
I have had fibro for around 18 to 20 years now and at long last my doctor is finally listening to me. Today she started me on Gabapentin, so I have to increase the dosage each day in the next three days. I had managed quite well up to a couple of years ago but as I am getting older (61) I am finding it a constant struggle. I am taking Amitriptyline 50mg at night as my quality of sleep is appalling, it still is even with the Amitriptyline, I cannot switch my brain off and when I do finally get enough sleep I want more. I also take pain relief when I need it and wear gel socks so my feet get a bit of relief from the fibro as it affects every part of the body.
