Hi I’ve just been diagnosed with FM , I also
Have osteoarthritis. I’ve been taken off amitriptoline as I have a heart condition and I was on gabapentin, my gp has taken me off these too as he says there’s no evidence of them working and they are soon to become a controlled drug. I can only take paracetamol as I have stomach ulcers and everything else upsets it. So now waiting on referral to a pain clinic. I’ve had to cut my hours in work quite drastically due to pain and fatigue which drives me mad! I have thought about trying for PIP but it seems FM is dismissed a lot by them? Anyone else been successful?
Thank you for reading. Leila 😊
