Hello, after months of visiting my doctors surgery with various ailments and consultant appointments with different depts in the local hospital I have been told I have Fibromyalgia...I actually told the doctor that I loved him as I felt a great relief that my symptoms which are very real are down to a real condition. I also have been told by ENT I have several things accuring that may need an operation though not yet sure if there is a link.
I have several other medical conditions...bowel problems and Bladder,Migraine, High BP, Breathing difficulties..Astma and Carpel Tunnel in both wrists and I am also about to spend a night in a sleep clinic to confirm Sleep Apnea. I have never had so much wrong with me as in the last 2 years or so....I'm only 46 and feel like an old lady, I have also turned very grey in a short space of time and my periods are all but given up even though blood tests show I am not even pre menopausal...Infact all my blood tests are normal other than my Vitamin D levels.
I work in catering though this is becoming a real effort as I start work in the afternoon and I am shattered by then due to my disturbed night with choking episodes.
I have been asked to go and take in my diagnosis and decide what treatment I would like..I'm not keen on taking Amotriptoline however would like to hear from others how things have gone for them.
