I've just joined the site. Was diagnosed in 2007 as a result of a conversation with a fellow suffering family member. I told the doctor what I'd been told, was sent for a blood test and to a rheumatologist, who left me in more pain going out than when I went in. Was on Tramadol but kept missing doses because of bad sleep and forgetfulness. Now have Buprenorphine patches and Amitryptiline on repeat, but no support.
