i have fibromyalgia like allot of you out there, For last 6 weeks of so I have had my medication massivly increased due to the amount of pain I have everywhere.
My dr basically make me feel that it is hopeless, nothing can be done except more medication, which does not seem to help ever...or ease the pain even though I could rattle im sure.
I visited a dr this week, not my normal dr, as he was on hol. This dr spoke so patronising to me and spoke as if I was some sort of scum bag.
In the end I asked who does he think he is talking to.
All I asked is: Is: I have been informed that if I ring social services they will fit me some bracets in bathroom to help me out of bath, My husbands in army and being deployed at end of year for another trip to Afghanistan, So he would normally help me do daft things like help me out of bath, sitting up in bed, getting up out of chair when legs are in so much pain. Id shower, but it hurt my skin so need a bath. I worry how I will manage this when he is not here with daft things in house. Changing a bed for example, I feel like Iv ran a marathon.
I work allot as a catering manager, but when I get home I am exhausted, and need to rest. I can only work though, as its more officework, sat down more than physical energy...but causes allot of stress so catch 22 really as the stress makes me so tired...
This dr made me feel so bad that I was quite upset. Its shocking how little a knowledge they have considering how common it is meant to be now, but once they have a label for you then everything is oh its your fibro thats all......shocking!
I have read up on it myself and im one of the lucky ones lol, I have "all" the syptoms not just 1 or 2, Also Thyroid underactive massivly, arthritus and loads of other stuff which confused the dr for a while...as symptoms same as other stuff I have.
Doing just simple things you take for granted is an issue with this.......
Id love to know if others feel the same. Do you always feel in pain or just now and then? as mine apears to be all the time. Id love to have a few people to talk to about this and if any of you good people out there have a medication that works as mine does not seem to.?
thats enuf moaning.....ta for reading.xxxx
