I am in so much pain and am sick of my GP I fell over earlier in the week and really hurt my face and of course the rest of my body was aching like mad. I had an appointment with my GP on Tuesday and what a waste of time he didn't examine me he didn't show any interest in what i was saying. My hands have got so bad again but he puts everything down to fibro but my hands have osteoarthritis he will no longer give me the steroid injections in my hands which if they get the right place it makes me pain free for at least three months. I am moving house next week into a bungalow which i am excited about as i will no longer be on my own i will be with my partner and my daughter and her partner its the only way we can all afford to live at the moment the bungalow is quite big so lots of space that we won't get in each others way etc. I tried to do a little packing today but my hands are now so bad and i only did two boxes and didn't lift anything heavy. I don't know what to do about the pain anymore. The GP gave me a couple of email addresses to look up and a you tube video called struggling to be me. I am not struggling to be me I don't sit and say oh I'm in pain i can't; do anything i have had fibro for over 25 years now and most of the time have coped but my joints are giving me problems i can't get referred to a rheumatologist and haven't had blood tests in years. I am not sleeping and haven't for months now i just feel like i a m being fobbed off now as he has run out of ideas to try. Others mention treatments that i have never even been offered to try. I have osteoarthritis in my knees, hips and hands and then the fibro but all i hear is fibro and nothing else. I have explained its not just the base of my thumbs anymore all my fingers are giving me problems but he won't listen. I am going to change Drs but i hope i find one who knows about fibro how do i find the right surgery for someone who knows about these things. sorry to go on but my hands are driving me crazy today and at night my hips and knees kick in really bad even with the meds if feel I'm in pain all the time and can't get it to settle just seems to be a flare up for the last couple of years. I just want someone to listen to what i am saying. Im sorry to go on just feel like crying tonight feeling low.
