My first blog so please be gentle with me
I was diagnosed 2 and a half years ago as my body felt like I had been run over by a truck;(
The doctor straight away said it was fibro and started prescribing me lots of meds .. Before the meds the symptoms where so bad that if I laid in bed for more than an hour my body froze and the pain kept me awake most of the night.
I was a very active person and had my own coffee shop so was always on my feet, this illness came out of no where and has slowly taken everything from me ;(
The doctors blame everything on my fibro and sometimes I feel ( what if it is something worse or something they are missing)
My meds are as follows Tramadol 2 x 50mg 4 x a day, Naproxen 1 x 250mg 4 x a day, Pregabalin 2 x 150 mg morning then again at bedtime, Citalopram 1 x 40mg a day, Mst Morphine 15mg morning and evening , oralmorphine when pain is really bad, oh not forgetting the amitriptyline at bedtime ;(
I have put on 3 stone in weight since taking meds and all the doctor said was she could put me forward for free slimming world ;( I know how to eat healthier ;(
I am at my wits end the pain in my legs is like my muscles are about to burst out my skin and the ache in my bones is like someone stabbing me with a knife.
I do not want to sit in a group and moan about it I just want to be put out of this pain ;(
Yes I am very depressed as cant get DLA and I'm on the sick from work and they r getting annoyed with me.
Any suggestions will be gratefully accepted
