I was diagnosed with Fibro last week after many months of pain and fatigue. My doctor said there is nothing they can really do and did not offer me any pain relief. He has arranged for an ECG and chest x ray as I have allot of chest pain at the moment (he wants to rule out heart problems for my peace of mind) and I am seeing him again at the end of the week. I was in so much pain last night that it hurt to even hold a knife and fork for dinner. I just wanted to cry. Because my GP didn’t offer any pain relief it’s made me paranoid that he thinks I don’t need it or I shouldn’t need it and I feel weak for asking.
Does any of that make sense and have you had a similar experience? What pain relief are you on or do you manage without it?
