hi all, finally found some up to date blogs/forums on this horrid condition... I have recently been diagnosed with fm after suffering for over 18 months. Do any pain killers work? And Antidepressants for sleep? yeah they knock me out for a good few hours but still feel stiff and achey and miserable when i get up, then only up a couple of hours and to be honest could easily go back to bed for an hour or so..my Gp looks at me as if I am an alien when i tell her nothing she has given me actually helps but I take them for the hell of it . I cry at stupid things and my concentration well that just goes, my hubby does most things around the house now as he knows it knocks me about too much if i do the house work, I feel redundant and a total waste of space, but I must admit I do do things around the house but suffer for it, I do it to prove to myself I can and then I have a reason for hurting so much. What a depressing condition this is, I just wished that for 1 week I could be pain free.
