well here i am again getting ready to go into work unsure how long i will be able to cope physically and mentally. I had a real bad shift yesterday and my pain levels are through the roof at moment pain killers just not touching pain, i have an appointment with an orthopedic consultant tomorrow, so maybe he can tell me why i have had pain in my hip for the last 2years i thought fibro was random pain in muscles not in joints i have arthitis in my knees and GP has said i cannot have anymore cortisone jabs as i have been having them every 3 months for 2 years and the last one my leg at the back of my knee swelled up about a week after i had which was 6 weeks ago and GP says it might be a reaction to cortisone my leg is still swollen i am so depressed at moment and GP has increased my prozac again but it does not seem to help, i just dont how i can cope at moment i feel so low which i know is not helping the pain . i am currently seeing the ME clinic and they are trying to teach me how to pace myself. gp thinks CBT might help anyone tried it?
