Pain all over

Hi, this is my first post and i am desperate. For years i have been in pain and then 4 months ago i went to my GP. He said i had fibromyalgia straight away and started me on pregablin. Unfortunatly i took ill and was in and out of hospital finally having my gallbladder removed. Im so much better but now im beside myself with pain.

On monday a GP said it was muscle pain (over the phone) and prescribed diazapam for a week but it feels like every bone is stingy sore and possibly my muscles. Im so upset. I dont know what to do.

I have taken them but nothing happend.

hi there. I take diazepam only when it's really bothering me at night, knowing full well that i will not be able to function for most part of the following day (but at desperate times, desperate measures, and this is the reason why I have been summoned to disciplinary hearing, as when i take diazepam i dont wake up til late afternoon. but at least i have much less pains). at present im trying to get "some kind of control" of my fibro, mainly with aminoacids (glutamine, arginine), as well as 5-HTP, and CoQ10 enzyme. and probiotics, I used to be on antidepressants, i refuse to go back on them. best of luck x

If you google Dr Myhill fibromyalgia you’ll find a plan of 4 supplements she recommends. I started taking them about 2 months ago plus I take turmeric, selenium and Vitamin D in Autumn/ Winter/ Spring. Altogether they’ve made a difference. Although I rest during the day my fatigue is less than it was. Pain is controllable with paracetamol and co-codamol when really bad. I’m doing more than I was six months ago. Forgot I also take Hemp Seed oil, this seemed to be a turning point , wouldn’t be without it now

It’s worth a try, I think it was about £25 outlay ( look on Amazon and EBay as a lot of things like coQ10 and magnesium available cheaply)

Hun- when you have major surgery every bone and muscle hurts post op.Your surgeon should have ensured to give you adequate pain relief, your gall bladder is attached to the back of your liver and has to be flipped over to take it out,, there,s a lot of snipping and corterising of vessels too. an anaesthetic leaves many with muscular skeletal pain, Have you got a follow up appt?? maybe phone the surgeons secretary and ask for it brought forward,, if they dont then you have evry right to go to A&E for some infusion of pain releif, at that point your surgeon & anaesthetist will be made aware that you attended.

About the fibro?? SOME g.p,s know the symptoms and some get it wrong as it can also be M.E. to get a true diagnosis you need a rheumatologist or neurologist and you should ask the surgeon top refer you for a consultation, you,ll get in quicker that way too. I hope you get sorted soon I know the agony of post op cholycystectomy (gall bladder removed). All the best Nurse Gladys Emanuel (still open all hours)

Thanks, all the gallbladder problems have gone and that side of these is great although we just found out my daughter has gallstones. I saw a doctor today and he said that there isnt much i can do. Hes uped my dose of pregablin so well see how it goes. Meanwhile im still in agony.
