hi there, i was diagnosed with fibro last august, it all started 3yrs ago with having to have a c5/c6 prolapse op,relpacing the disc with titanium and having bulging discs at the bottom of my spine i got middle rate, then when i was diagnosed i reapplied for it and ive been very lucky with the dla, they gave me higher rate. I walk mainly all the time with a walking stick and am in constant pain all the time, down my legs and lower back, shoulders and neck, with mega headaches, neuropathic pains down my arms, my chest bones really hurt. I am so very very forgetful and the fibro fog is just hellish.....i have 6 kids and a partner who has exactly the same neck problems.
we had the same op and for the past year he has been suffering the exact symptoms as i have for this fibro.
has anyone ever come across that? I think it is really spooky that we both have the same pains, same depression, same fibro fog and this was a very articulate and sharp man, who now struggles to remember anything and has such pain that sometimes he needs to bee carried into the toilete by one of our big boys.
They age from 18yrs to the youngest at 4yrs old. We are only 45 and 44, he's not been diagnosed, but im convinced because he is so like me. \my medication consistes of tramodol and codiene, gabapentin and diclafenic. So thats me and i am so very grateful that i have come across this site through facebook so as i can speak to and listen to likeminded people. So for that i thank you all so very much. gerry. xxxx
