Hi i'm new to this site and its only found it a couple of days ago but its so nice to see i'm not alone which having this illness makes you feel.. I have many days of crying with pain and wishing for even an hour it would stop I'm into my 3 yr now with fibro and hoping it would be better but its not it just seems to get worse..but as sad has it sounds you do learn to live with it but its down to making a lot of changes in your life and learning to pace youself and its taken me 3 yrs to realise that , frustrating is not the word . I cant plan anything with my family because i dont know what sort of day i will be having its basically i live from day to day..I'M so happy to of found this site it answers a lot of questions that my dr does not seem to know the answers to hopefully i wont feel so alone now ..Is anyone else housebound with this illness i can only walk a few yards then i'm in the most excruciating pain..i have to rely on my partner to take me to the shops i'm on a lot of medication (naproxen ,citalopram.,Amitriptyline,Omeprazole and dihydrocodeine.. does anyone have any ideas of what i can try because even with all the meds i'm on i still get pain i also have Arthritis in both knees and get terrible low down back pain which knocks me for six ... I have now been referred to a pain clinic and they put all my meds up but hope they can offer me something else when i go next month.. sorry to go on but my heads full of questions
