Thought I'd submit a post on the forum as the last couple of days I have been in constant pain and and I am getting so fed up. I wondered if anyone else has similar problems.
I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia around 2 years ago, although my symptoms stretch back around 4 years. When I have a flare up it usually lasts a couple of day's, but this time it's dragged on for about four days and is currently still affecting me. I have pain in my shoulder blades about half way down which periodically goes into my lower back, my neck and my kidney area aches to the point that it feels like stabbing pain. I have been on Duloxetine for over 2 years (60mg) though at times I have had to increase it to 90mg.
I supplement this medication with Zapain (Co-Codamol) and Ibuprofen.
Does anyone have any advice, as the last time I had an episode like this the emergency doctor just issued me with an increased dose of Duloxetine which has the consequence of wiping me out for several days.
