I've been living with chronic pain and depression for years and basically inhaling cocodamol and anti-depressants for as long as I can remember. I've got a new GP who is fabulous and during this recent and very severe mental health crisis has changed a lot of my head meds, referred me to a psychiatrist ( who I've seen 3 time so far) and done a lot of tests to try and discover the root of my pain. Instead of cocodamol, I now have a BuTrans patch (10mg) which only really takes the edge off my pain. I did a fair amount of housework yesterday and today I'm in a great deal of pain. A couple of friends with fibromyalgia have recommended I talk to my GP about the possibility of having it as all my tests came back normal (apart from a vit d deficiency which he has given me strong supplements for). However, I don't want him to think I'm a hypochondriac and I already take up enough of his time. I'd like to discuss this further with fibro sufferers to see how my symptoms compare, also to find out what I can do for self-care before visiting him again. Hope you're all doing well!
