was on pain relief for years for pain in back and diagnosed with fibro in 2012...in 2017 my gp (who is no longer in the surgery) told me the meds i was on was causing my pain, iand that fibro was all in the mind! felt like i was being judged, so a few weeks later took remaining meds in and told him i wanted to come off them, that was 18 months ago and my life since then with pain has become a grim existence...i have recently moved doctors because my old gp has left, i am in constant agony back hip legs shoulders and have been left with nothing no help! i am exhausted, the most that was done was a referal to a pain clinic who saw me for 5 mins and the consultant allready had a pain management programme to hand me and shoo me out the door!..the pain and effort i went through to actually get there, i was in full flare up the next day..now i am expected to go and sit somewhere in a public group for 3 hours a once a week for 12 weeks and publicly discuss in a group my pain? i cant commit 1 hout a month to anything with this exhaustion and pain, i feel ill over this and feel like actually running away...im stuck with a gp that doesnt know me and now the social anxiety of a PMP...despite spending the last 18 months practicing mindfullness, massage and reflexology...i have actually stopped going to the gp for help now because anything i have problems with is all put down to fibro. as though i am a hypochondriac so i stay suffering at home?
