Hello all, I am all new to fibro, My gp has said I am displaying all the signs of fibro and has referred me to the m.e team. I think I have had fibro for some time but just not connected it, I have a rough medical history, but it really kicked off last June when I tripped up the stairs at work (clumsy me ) they thought I had fractured my wrist and put me in plaster for 12 weeks altogether after an mri I never fractured it anyway, but since then omg it has spread all over my body pain is bad, I get stiff and lock up, for the past 3 weeks I have a weird sensation down my left hand side from waist to knee all I can say is it feels like stinging nettles, I get pins and needles in the soles of my feet and just feel bruised all over I get burning hot pain in my back hips and shoulders, joints hurt, the fatigue is hard just doing something small at the moment wears me out,
I am in pain despite meds ( pregablin, buprenorphine patches and amitriptyline. Ohh and hrt) I am also waiting to see pain management team, I was seeing different gp's within the practice but now seeing my own and he has been good.
I I get between 2and half on a bad night and 4 on a good night, so frustrating I want to sleep but the pain isn't letting me I sit on a gym ball to try and relieve some of the pain and have a heat pad which is my best friend,
Jezzz i have just read it all back and sound like a right moaning mine, I guess Right now I a just fed up, any advice would be great
Thank you in advance
