After 14 months since my diagnosis of Fibromyalgia, I have finally found a G.P. who listens to me. For the last 12 months I have had increasing weakness in my limbs. I have had difficulty walking up any gradient or up stairs, etc. I found myself 3 months ago having difficulty walking at all, numbness, difficulty going to the toilet (1's & 2's) and pins and needles. The doctor referred me to a neurology after a thorough examination. I never had such an examination from the other doctor; he told me my new symptoms were a flare up of fibromyalgia at least 5 times on separate visits. I got my Neurology appointment last Friday for 26th November! I wasn't happy to wait that long as my job, my life, is at stake. I wrote to my doctor and he asked to see me today. He examined me again before phoning the hospital. I now have a neurology appointment tomorrow!!!! It just goes to show you don't get anything if you don't ask Hugs xxxxxx
