Hi everyone, I'm fairly new to this site, I have replied to a few posts, but I have never really introduced myself.
My name is Pat and I live in the Highlands of sunny Scotland.
I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and ME in 1990, since then I've developed Osteo and Rhumatoid arthritis, have also had a double Heart Bypass 9yrs ago due to coronary artery desease, I now take a lovely assortment of pills,spray's and potions. I have been left with angina now so have to be careful where excersize is concerned which in turn leads to weight problems, to which my gp told me that exercise is over rated, I like my GP,ha ha.
I tend to get a lot of chest infections and asthma attacks so I keep having to take steroids, lovely stuff, makes me hungry all the time, hence the size of ten ton tessy haha. That's my excuse anyway. Still have a good sense of humour, still at least I don't have to take a pill for that.
At the moment I'm struggling with sleep or lack of it I'm on Amatriptyline 150mg at night and Tramadol 200mg slow release twice a day, thats without everything else, you'd think I would have mastered it by now after all these years, but sadly no.
Has anyone found a recipe for sleep???
Well that's all Folks I'll go now I've bored you all to tears.
Take Care lots of Feather Hugs
