Hi. I have posted several times about my daughter she's 21 and lives with chronic pain every day. She has other symptons to like headaches. We have been pushing for the last 3 years for help as she's so young and her life shouldn't be like this. We have had every test going plus mri bloods the whole works but they have never been able to find anything wrong. Over the past few weeks I've lost count of the times we have been to the doctors just last week she had a massive chest infection water infection and an asthma attack. The doctor never listens so I started going with her as I am pretty vocal and my opinion will be heard. We have a new doc now and she's brilliant she is under the impression that it us fibromyalgia and referred us to a rheumatologist she has prescribed 5 microgram/hour buteo transdermal patch. Has anyone ever used these as they don't appear to be working she's signed off work again and dispite being a strong girl she broke down in tears last night. I feel so useless and have no idea how to help her. She found Co codamol helped but can she take them with the patches. Any help would be greatly appreciated
