First post, sorry it's a bit long.
I have been struggling physically for the last 6 months, after falling off a ladder only 2 MTRS and fell on my feet.
Since that point though I have deteriorated from an healthy active person to someone I don't recognise, no offence but I'm only in the middle of my life with young kids and I'm like a 90 year old cripple, walking aids, toilet aids, bath seat, grab handles, long shoe horns, support socks, shoes 2 sizes bigger, extra large size 11-14 diabetic socks (I'm not diabetic, but my legs n feet swell a lot and water tablets didn't work) ..... The list goes on.
I can't walk unaided now, walking stick, mobility scooter and wheelchair are the order of the day.
Getting in the bath is a no go too painful, so sidle in on the bath board for some sort of shower.
I have had loads of tests, bloods, x-rays, cardiologist, scans etc.
The latest from a private rheumatologist says I have Fibromyalgia!
He says pain killers won't touch it and I agree with that, but then the treatment is left with my GP to manage and suggests I look into psychotherapy! He suggested something called Amitriptyline to help me sleep as I only average about 15 minutes deep sleep each night.
Oh, also exercise is very good, lose some weight and release the good chemicals in the brain.
But the pain I said?
Don't worry about it, nothing wrong with your joints, it's Fybramalgia just work through the pain!!!
Anyone else had anything similar to this with a similar outcome?
Thanks in advance
