I have literally just been told I have fibro as it is the only diagnosis left. I have had IBS , anxiety and general pain for years - last year I developed plantar fascitis and generalised tendonitis around my body and limbs. I ended up in hospital as I couldn't move my neck due to the intense pain and they thought I had a clot in the vein in my neck - very scary. I have had a frozen shoulder for about 8 months; hip pain, elbow and knee pain - not to mention needle like hot pain in fingers and toes and really thought that it was all psychosomatic. The GP was not listening and I began to feel that I was a fraud and that this was all in my head.
Whilst quite shocked to be told that I have fibro (I have not come across it before) it is a bit of a relief to know that I am not going mad!
I will start on amytryptilene tonight which is a worry as I have to get up early for work but let's see what happens
You seem a friendly and supportive bunch out there and to be honest I could do with some support - I think my family are sick of listening to me - I am sick of listening to me! Hopefully now I know what I am up against it will help.
I hope you're all having a good day out there
