Hi, sorry I have been inactive for a while I have been unfortunately suffering a bad flare up. I feel as though my symptoms are getting worse and worse. I have been suffering with extreme dizziness and an inability to walk, I feel as though I am walking on broken ankles. A GP phoned me back today as part of the triage system, and I was made to feel as though I have made the whole thing up. I am also so nauseated all the time. He booked me an appointment for 4 weeks with a doctor - even after I explained I can barely walk and am too weak to even lift my head off a pillow or shower etc. I feel to weak to even lift a spoon to my mouth sometimes. I just wondered at what point do they take us seriously - I honestly feel people without fibromyalgia would go toA&E if they felt this level of pain 24/7. Sorry for the rant I am just feeling really disheartened especially when it’s a GP making you feel like you are just phoning to get medication - do they not realise we don’t want to feel like this? I don’t know how much pain I truly have to be in for someone to take me seriously. I am currently on Duloxetine 30mg which do nothing to touch my pain and I am so fed up of being in this unbearable pain. Sorry to be such a moan and so negative on here just feeling low at the moment and needed a rant.
Hope you’re all as good as you can be.
