Hello everyone -
I'm really glad to have found this community. I was diagnosed with Fibro in September last year, but offered no treatment by the person who diagnosed me, or explanation for the diagnosis (every GP I saw thought I had a form of arthritis since the pain isn't muscular)
But since the pain was getting a bit much, I decided to roll with it and asked my GP about treatment. I wasn't offered painkillers as my body is already too tolerant of them - to the point diahydracoedine stopped having any effect (I suffer with other pain conditions and my whole life have just had different painkillers thrown at me to 'treat' it). The only thing I was offered was a cheap gym and pool membership. I've been attending the gym for over 8 weeks now, and the pain feels worse. My legs are now constantly in pain as opposed to just at night, or in the cold, which was the usual case of things.
I'm wondering if anyone else has been offered 'activity therapy' to treat their Fibro, and if so, how has it worked out for you?
