Hi everyone ,I saw my gp last week and was told he feels I have FM as I have had blood tests and seen a rhumey,who dxd me with syjorgens syndrome and raynaulds syndrome.
As my bloods showed nothing else apart from the vitamin D def that I have been on meds for for the last year.
I have not been able to sleep properly at night for years,due to severe aches and pains that wake me constantley,I take Amitrypyiline at night with not much relief.
My go has given me Garbaptin to try but he was going to givr me pregablin I'm going to ask for pregablin as it seems to have less side effects.
What I really wanted to ask is,without meaning to offend anyone,I have always thought that FM was purely aches and pains? My daughter was dxd with severe ME 15 years ago,aged 11, back then ME was a nightmare to deal with as it seemed to be thought to be all in the mind.
I totally disagree, as my daughter suffered horrendously ,it is now thought she may all these years later that she may now have multiple sclerosis,but that is another story,bless her.
I have only read a little bit on the forum and shall take my time to read lots more,but please can you give me your experiences of what FM really does to the body? Thank you so much in advance.Sandy.
