Good afternoon over the past few years I have had many aches and pains cartliage removed from my knee slipped disk in my back repaired ongoing spondylitis and for the past 18 months the diagnosis of RA so I have been on the steriods and the mexatrate etc...... then last monday saw the RA registrar who afer chatting through my symptoms announced that I have fibromyalgia. Gave me a booklet to read discussed doing aerobic excercises, speak to my GP about pain mesdication but where possible should look to come off them! announced that a couple of years ago I would probably had been referred to a piain management consultant for steroid injections but they have now come to the conclusion they do not work said goodbye and see you in 6 months............ Well it has taken me over a week and thre days of work with immense pain, fibro fog and an upset stomach to try and get my head around tghis. I feel that they have put all my symptoms that they cannot treat in a box and named it fibromyalgia!! I now have the stress of telling my employer who I know will not show any compasion as we have no HR and only 5 employees... I am worried for my health/job and sanity not sure what to do next and would welcome any guidance or help.....
