  • Hello Claire.....Sorry you are poorly. Have you seen the doctor or hospital yet and do you have fibromyalgia? Maybe with a little more information from you we can help...

  • I'm hopefully going to the doctors tomorrow it's just so hard to get a appointment at the doctors... I haven't been diagnosed with fibromyalgia.. but a lady I work with suffers with it and she and I tell her what's wrong with me and she thinks I have it I suffer bad with my periods as well xx

  • Claire, I think the best thing you can do is to make an appointment with your doctor and tell him of your symptoms. It usually takes a good long time to get a diagnosis as they have to rule other things first. He/she hopefully will do some blood and other tests then depending on the outcome refer you to a Rheumatologist. Let us know how it goes....x

  • Ive been to my doctors not so long ago with pain under my ribs etc and he said I needed blood test so I went but he got the blood test back and said there's nothing to worry about xx

  • Claire do you know what was testing for? Fibro does not show up in blood tests or any tests. Seems like you have started on the road for diagnosis. Has he referred you to a rheumatologist as he is the one in the end who can diagnose it, if he hasn't then request that he does.....x

  • I am sorry you are feeling so poorly with pain and panic attacks. Like Trikki says, you really do need to see a rheumatologist.

    I am wondering if you have been prescribed something like Lansoprazole to line your tummy and help prevent acid reflux. If not then I would seriously insist that you have them as most anti-inflammatories can cause bleeding and excess acid.

    As far as feeling dizzy and needing to sit down, unfortunately that can be a symptom of fibro, although other things should be ruled out first.

    Always get a copy of your blood results and then you can monitor your condition yourself.

    I hope you have a better day tomorrow.


  • Hi Claire91

    I really am so genuinely sorry to read of how you are feeling, and as the others have said please ring the doctors and make an appointment. I want to sincerely wish you all the best of luck my friend, and please take care of yourself.

    All my hopes and dreams for you


  • Morning Claire sorry you are feeling YUK at the moment - would suggest you take yourself off to doctors - we can't advise only suggest through our own experiences. Hope you are feeling better soon nothing worse than feeling like this. Take care πŸŽ„πŸŽ…πŸ»

  • Hi Claire, sorry to hear that you are not feeling well. I get the nausea thing too but not actually sick, it's a bit like morning sickness for me. I tend to get the panicky thing if I do manage to drop of to sleep then wake up like it and have to try and breathe my way through it. I hope you can get some advise from a doctor very soon and just try to take it easy.

    All the best

    Jo x
