I have been diagnosed with fibro for around 10 years now although I have probably had it longer.
At the begining of february I slipped on the laminate flooring, the cat had knocked some plastic coathangers onto the floor and my foot caught on them, but I moved them and then fell again. The diagnosis at the walk in centre was I had overstretched my ligaments. The NHS is getting really bad too they reckon I should just keep taking the Amitryptelline and gabapentin as normal, not to bother with anything else and not even offered a support bandage. The nurse who I saw said it normally takes a month to recover from this but I realise that it was for a patient without fibro, so I was just wondering how long before this gets better in a fibro sufferer? I am not sleeping and the pain is unbareable anyone got any suggestions?
My DLA was stopped last year - apparently I could walk. Could I reapply because I have only been out once and I was scared I might fall again? I have trouble walking to the loo and back to bed.
