Eerrrrmmm, ok I knew what I want to say but it's gone so please excuse if I waffle on a bit ,
I have been back and fourth to gp and hospital for the last 2 years with chronic pain (have posted on here once about it I think) been on pregablin benorphine patches and amtrip, saw pain management (got 3 hours notice as someone had cancelled did I want it a big yes phoned mum and she came and with me)was told by a very abutted lady that I shouldn't be on the benorphine patches and to up the amtrip, by 10mg a fortnight till I get to 100 was on 30, sounds like loads to me.
The following week I saw the CFS team very nice ladies appointment was for an hour again mum took me, they both agreed that I have fibro, really just confirming what the go had said, talked to them about what the p/m lady had said and they said it sounded a lot, but then went to gp and he said no it's not but most people with fibro settle around the50 to 70 mark, increase to 50 this weekend.Back to gp this evening,to see if the increase in amtrip is helping, but I am worried about the weight I am putting on a stone and half in the last 18 moths, I know that it can be a side affect of the pregablin is there anything else that people could suggest I put forward to the gp that I could take for pain that doesn't pile the weight on, 10 years ago I went from around the 24 stone mark ( scales I have went to 23 stone and wen I got on them they said error) I lost 7and half stone and have kept it off until I was on the pregablin just worried and stressing about the weight gain as I don't wasn't to get to that size again,
Pain has been increasing so much in the past 6 months, I was living with mum and da for a year. But living in a small 2 bed bungalow with 3 adults was difficult, after many rows manyly with dad as we both like are own opinion. I divided it wasn't fair on them, I found a place to rent on my own, been in here 8 weeks now it very nice having my own space, plus they are only 10 minutes away, mum comes over ever day and helps me with things and writes my lists of what I have to do, she cooks me meals and puts them in the freezer, me and dad get along much better now lol,
Oh yes my point is there anything that people can suggest that I can put forward to the go this evening instead of the pregablin because I really don't want to end with any more weight gain. I do excise as much as my body allows at the moment it's yoga and using the wii fit.
Right enough of my waffling
Hope all of you have a good day
