As well as having been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia I also have Diabetes type 2 and Neuropathy caused by the diabetes.
Whenever I go to my doctors for more pain releif they dont seem to be very interested in the fibro everything revolves around my diabetes.
I am already taking Gabapentin, Paracetamol,and morphine as pain releif and with tablets for depression, sleeping, reflux cholestoral, high pressure, chronic fatigue etc I already take 32 tablets each day so I dont want any more tablets.
My doctors, my wife believes, treat me as some sort of guinea pig because each time I go they say, "Shall we try this", I dont really care if it helps but some days pain is so bad in my arms and legs that I would gladly cut them off .
I am a 62 year old male and this started about ten years ago with carpul tunnel for which I had the operations but when I had the related nerve compression tests they did tell me that there was also some underlying neurological problem which I presume was the fibro it was also at this time that they detected the diabetes
Dont think that I am not grateful to my doctors for their help with the diabetes but I just wish that they would take more interest in the fibro.
