I need some advice/help. I was recently referred to a rhumatologist at our local hospital. I had blood tests and various other examinations. I was told I didnt have rheumatism and fro. What I'd told the doctor and with the results from my blood tests the doctor said it's probably fibromylagia. Her reason for this was mainly due to me being treated for a vitamin d deficiency, I had a reading of 9 and should be 40 I think. She said it usually resulted in fibromyligia. Then discharged me, didn't give me any advice on anything . I am in constant pain and have days of sever weakness where I can't get out of bed. Sometimes if it's warm I feel better and able to get about. Other times when it's warm I feel no better.
So is it worth me going to see a specialist? I am happy to go private. Or do I just battle on with the pain and weakness that debilitated me and can mean I can't get out of bed.
I live in West Yorkshire and I started bei g ill just after the sudden deaths of my parents. Until then I worked full time as a prison officer and was very fit and healthy. I have now had to stop working due to my illness.
