hi i joined this site a few weeks ago but have not spoken on it until now. i woke up today (having decided to skip the amitriptyline last night) in a lot of pain throughout my body but in particular my right arm (mainly the shoulder, elbow, and my wrist feels like i have sprained it) i have a days work to look forward to while feeling like ive gone 10 rounds with tyson. I try to keep my condition to myself at work ( because im scared that my bosses will say im not up to the job and get rid of me) but when i feel like this i become snappy with people and want to be left alone. i was diagnosed with fibro about 6 months ago by my GP i have never been to see a consultant but have a lot of trust in my GP and am happy to be treated by him (which is 25mg of Amitriptyline before bed) does anyone have a similar experience of working with this condition? and if so have they any advise of how to deal with bad days? (taking a sick day is out of the question because you get a diciplinary hearing if you have time off ).
