Well after feeling not right for over a year i decided with my list of ailments to go to my G.P and low and behold she 99% diagnosed me there and then with fibromyalgia after seeing a specialist a few weeks later it was 100% yes i had it, where do we go from here then well it is horrendous i feel tired , depressed cant remember things ie phone numbers that are only6 digits long! come on whats all that about?? my balance is hilarious some days i am in the shop and i have hold onto the check out as i think i am going to fall over, sometimes at home i just fall to the side , i dont drink before anyone thinkd that may be the cause!. My sleeping is a joke i go to bed at 11pm and am up walking my dog at 5.30 am (poor dog) but oh how i wish i had slept all that time i ache, i too have put a duvet under my shhet i have supports and cushions my bed looks 10 foot high lol and still nothing . As for medication i take 8 to 10 co codamol aday 40 mg citralopram and 3x amitritilyne and i am on 20 mg transdermal pain patches you would think i would be out for most of the day, i miss my 2 grandsons i cant have them alone it is just too much they are nearly 4 and 2 years old. I drive but only to shops and back, i cant see me ever working again, which is a shame, i have also got carpal tunnel in my hands and they are like ice most of the time and the strenghth in them has gone i only quarter fill a kettle and cant lift heavy things, i wear wrist supports which help a bit, the trouble is i look ok (well whatever that is) and you would not know anyhing was wrong but thats the trouble unless you got fibromyalgia you cant possibly know how it feels and what it is like even close family and friends cant understand so i just put on my mask and say yeah i am fine (i wish) well i will get off my soap box now i have had my rant. but i do say there is always someone worse off than me and sometimes it does work. So take care all you fellow suffreres and just remember your not alone. Diddle xxx
