Hi, not posted on here for a long time but feel I need to rant to people that understand and have probably been in same circumstances. Had appointment this morning with gp, not my regular but needed review of gabapentin, walked in to his office with walking stick as been suffering with left knee and hip, he asked what was the stick for so obviously answered with cause of the fibro. First words out of his mouth was u dnt need that, your just disabling yourself. He pulled up on his screen my diagnosis letter from rheumatologist and read "no abnormalities with blood tests and no signs of arthritis from ultrasound" and he basically told me there's nothing wrong with me, to go and get a job, give up smoking and exercise more. He wanted to take me off gabapentin cause he said I don't need it as I'm not epileptic and that fibromyalgia is not a disability or an organic condition hence why blood tests, xrays and ultrasounds show nothing, it's not a disease and just means I have a low pain threshold. He reluctantly put gabapentin on repeat for me but he wants me to drop my dose to 600mg 3 times a day whereas I'm taking 900mg in morning and night and 600mg in afternoon which has helped a lot.
Anyways rant over, made appointment with my regular gp who has been there for the past painful 13 months on 10th of Feb.
Hope everyone here is doing as well they can and sorry for the long post
