I have only been diagnosed with fibro by my doctor. He has now left and I will be seeing a new doctor this week. Should I ask to be sent to the hospital to see someone who knows more about fibro? Who would be best, a rheumatologist? I have never had a check to see where my tender pain points are. I want to come off Amitriptyline as I am sure that has caused my weight gain. Has anyone else experienced itching? Since being put on a higher dose (50mg) I have itching round the sides and front of my neck. No other explanation for it. What could I ask to be put on instead of Amitriptyline as it doesn't really help much with pain at night.
