I thought I would up date you on my first appointment with a private Rheumatologist this afternoon! He was very good, asked lots of questions and examined me. He does think I have fibro and has put me on Amtriptyline along side of my tramadol to begin with then will increase the dose. He also mentioned Gapapentin later and also patches if need be. Hopefully now I will be able to get some proper sleep and manage to deal with day to day chores from now on.
He will also write to my gp for further prescriptions and physio.
I can't tell you how relieved I am after speaking to someone who specialises in fibro and understands the problems that go with it. He didn't make me feel like I was wasting his time or speaking another language.
I then went to spend a couple of hours at my Granddaughters school bbq which was nice but I couldn't wait to get home for a hot bath and pj's. My eyes are closing writing this but I couldn't go to bed before I told you all my excellent news (not that I've got fibro just the fact I know I'm not going insane)
Hope you all had a good day.
Love and hugs xx
