I saw the GP this morning and it was ok. I had a few questions about various symptoms such as sweating, tiredness, ringing in ears, dizziness and depression. I dont want to just accept these are part of fibro and I have to live with them, but that seems the case. My blood pressure was taken and thats ok, the gp suggested reducing my meds as Im on amitriptyline and that causes many side effects, but Im not sure about this. He asked me to go for a blood test to check various things. He reassured me that there isnt anything else that can be wrong with me. He encouraged me to keep pacing myself to help with the tiredness, and keep to a good diet and exercise. He also suggested mindfulness to help with the depression and suggested I go back onto sertraline, I was on that for a while but stopped when I started taking amitriptyline, I didnt want to go on more meds.
How do others cope on a daily basis with this horrible condition.
Take care of yourselves. It is a warm day, and Im staying indoors as I just melt otherwise. I will pop out later as Im off to the fibro support group this afternoon.
