  • Hi Pike..... I'm in Fife.

    I dont visit anyone except my gp and only then when I need a change in meds or I have a new symptom.

    have been diagnosed for several years,do find my Gp very supportive(she new nothing about fibro at first and learned along with me so maybe that helps some.)

    I live with my 26year old son and work as a relief social care worker in a residential hoe for the elderly.

    hope you find some support nearby...if not this is a wonderful place to chat, get advice/ideas, have a moan and even get a giggle :-)

  • hi Tiiggerfan I'm in Fife too, but not getting much help from my GP keeps telling me it's just my fibro but I think there's more going on, been diagnosed almost 7yrs ago and never have had any tests done or seen a specialist since then :(

  • Hi Pike, i am in scotland but not near you, I only have my GP to ask for help and advice but she isn't much good, think I've exhausted her ideas, I'm suffering from extreme fatigue and pain had blood tests done last week so won't find out the results until Thurs, but in the past they've come back normal. I hope you get some help soon, take care

  • Thanks lisa-b and tiggerfan it helps knowing there are other poor buggers like myself,as i wright this i have been up for 2 hours and feel as if i have never slept my pain is about an 8-10 today so i am going to have a nap bye.
