Hi I'm looking for some advice I have been diagnosed with having costochondritis and fibromyalgia I'm so swollen and extremely tender to touch from the ribs to my lower abdomen I look like I'm 9 months pregnant I'm struggling through each day I'm a nurse so work can be challenging at times. I have been diagnosed with this since 2010. I just wondered if anyone has found away to control the flares and swelling?
I have seen my gp who had given me medication on repeat prescriptions but I don't feel anything really improves, the go requested that she saw me on a two weekly basis, at first that was ok but in all honesty she didn't seem interested so I stopped going. So others could have appointments, I had a hysterectomy in 2013 at the age of 39. I have been asked when is the baby due ? Very upsetting, everything is getting me down.
