I'm just new here - I have been diagnosed with Fm for years + the usual ibs etc. I take butrans patches, pregablin, other bits..
But today, a flare up is on horizon - close. Ibs has hit hard but I Cannot have this happen now! My elderly mother (88) is having a hip replaced tomorrow and I am meant to be here to support her through it... Now my ibs has flared (sure sign the rest will follow)... I am absolutely devastated!
I am meant to be here 3 weeks... and I am struggling already. I will of course rely on my electric wheelchair, but I am very concerned I shall not be able to do the best for her- especially cos if things flare good and proper... I could be almost bed bound!
