Hi to all, following a failed spine surgery I was diagnosed with genetic fibromyalgia. I had previously suffered with rheumatoid arthritus, a duo denal ulcer and Ibs from a child. Since surgery ive never felt the same again. I was given a number of medication I later realised were for fibro but I intolerated against each and every medication, the worst being Duloxetine. I no longer take oramorph but live on pain killers daily and diazepam for spasms in my back. I was told 2 years ago I can never work again and am classed as severley disabled. I changed my whole diet which does help reduce pins and needles and brain fog. I can not have massage or physio etc due to spine damage. Although ive never been able to reduce surgery pain I have eliminated my fibro to zero twice now when taking a holiday in Cyprus. The heat is amazing and I was able to activities I could never do in the UK. Unfortunately,within hours of returning to the UK I suffer a flu and cough. Has anyone else been diagnosed with genetic fibromyalgia? Ive put myself forward for oxygen treatment and wondering if anyone else has already tried the treatment? Blessings to all sufferers as fibro steals your life away from you and there doesnt seem to be any form of treatment free in the UK other than being used as a Guinea pig for money making pharmaceutical companies
