Hello everyone, I would just like to say that I finally had my appointment with a Rheumatologist yesterday after waiting 5 months and I have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. ( I had diagnosed myself with this about 2 years ago). Sorry the Nurse instinct in me has been researching for so long. She was a nice Russian Consultant, that was very thorough and understanding. She is writing to my GP, she mentioned not to take anti inflammatories (like the ones my gp had given me but not taken), as it was not inflammatory. She did bloods and said she wanted to rule out other things (?). Amytryptolene was mentionned very low dosage, (doctor gave me previously but had not taken), yes you have gathered quite anti drug based, but if necessary will do. Sleep, importance of that, vit D Ferritin was also mentionned. At least now I can go back and fight my Pip refusal and have an appointment with the CAB again next week. Still trying to recover from my mid left foot fusion and hope to get the bandages and stitches out on Monday and pot put on. I have gone down into the lowest depths of depression at times, but I am fighting back and I am willing my spiritual soul to pull through. Good luck to each and everyone one of you who is going through the same thing. I wish you all well............x
