I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia 11 years ago, my doctor told me that not all physicians see this as a genuine medical condition and I was pretty much told that 'there's nothing we can do' and was sent on my way with amitriptyline, (which had no effect) I had learnt to live with this and crack on with life (when I could stay awake) until recently I noticed that (with thanks to social media) more sufferers are coming forward and fibromyalgia is more common,
For me this is a condition that you can feel and not see, like mental health illness, I think it's hard for people to understand what you are going thru, as they can't see it,
On the outside you look like anyone else, on the inside for me I feel like a old lady most days,,,,,,
Now fibromyalgia is more common I am going to see my GP and start getting some treatment and a referral to a specialist.
Wish me luck !!!!!!
