Hello I am 41 and have kind of diagnosed myself with FM. I read an article in GH magazine and recognised myself after researching the condition. I basically ticked all the boxes! I saw a GP today, who seemed more interested in my depression and telling me body pain can be caused by depression - not really sure where he was going with this. Anyhow he has put me on Amatrtiptylin alongside citralopram and asked me to go back in 3 weeks. Is this a normal response from a GP, should I have been referred or will that come later??? He checked blood testes carried out over past couple of years, as I have been in the Docs on a few occasions with the most awful fatigue and insomnia.
