Hi everyone, I'm new to this site but was looking for somewhere I could get some advice. I'm 41 & I've had symptoms of fibromyalgia for as long as I can remember (it started in my neck & shoulders in my early 20s). At the start of this year I decided enough was enough as I had been struggling quite a bit. I seen my gp quite a few times & He fobbed me off with Meloxicam 7.5mg & Methocarbamol 750mg. He never mentioned fibromyalgia & either did I tbh. He finally said he would refer me to a rheumatologist at start of March this year but never said why. I've now found out that I'm on a waiting list of 19+ months to see a rheumatologist. I'm getting worse & feel that my gp is fobbing me off & I don't know whether to go back to him or not...would it be worthwhile going private. I'm only 41 but I feel more like 81.
I appreciate any advice as I'm struggling big time atm. T
