So last week I was finally diagnosed with fibromyalgia. I was expecting my doctor to refer me for physiotherapy or pain management of some form, however he simply said I wasn't allowed it on the NHS I would have to pay for it because it doesn't have a cure so there's nothing they can do. He then proceeded to give me a prescription for anti inflammatories and sent me packing.
As I'm sure you can all imagine I was devastated and couldn't believe I wasn't allowed to have any treatment on the NHS, particularly when I have had severe pain in my hands and feet for the last few months.
Has anyone here had a similar experience? Or have you been allowed an NHS referral for any form of pain management?
