That's what my boyfriend and I have taken to calling this condition - it seems to be taking the p*** out of me, so I think it's time I had a go back!
Well, the GP couldn't access my blood results on the computer last week, but he's fairly sure (as I am) that the consultant would've contacted me if there were any abnormalities. So, that and the results of the physical examination (tender points etc.) seem to suggest that Fibro is the correct diagnosis. He's prescribed 30:500 Co-codamol (a beautiful drug that doesn't shift the pain so much as takes away my ability to care - used with extreme caution for this reason!), and 10mg amitriptyline, which appears to be causing mild dizziness and postural hypotension. I'll give it a few weeks to settle, though, before I pass judgement on it, as it does seem to be helping me to sleep, even if my dreams have been bordering on psychedelic!
I'm having trouble focusing my mind to work at the moment, too. Not so bad when I'm treating patients, as they're there in front of me, but the admin side of it all seems to be eluding me right now. I make lists, and then my mind wanders, and the lists are still there, haunting me, and teasing me. I'm sure it'll pass.
