  • Have you talked to your GP about your headaches ... I was having terrible headaches and discovered mine were caused by muscle spasms which I get treated for with injections and the occasional med and mine have gone from lasting 3 days out of every seven to three in the last 18 months

    If you have seen your GP recently and he hasn't been able to help you could ask for a referral to your local pain clinic that's where my GP sent me and that's where I get my 3 monthly injections for the headaches

    Hope that helps a little

  • I get very annoyed when GPs blame things on the menopause! They should at least investigate to exclude other problems.

    Your symptoms are suggestive of a fibro flare, though, so maybe you should ask your GP to refer you to rheumatology. It's good you've had a full eye test, as that in itself covers several quite serious areas!

    Write a list to take to your GP, and try to calmly go through it so he knows exactly what you want. You could even take a family member with you for support if you think your doctor is brushing you aside.

    Don't get too distressed, because once you have a proper diagnosis, you can set about managing your condition, which most of us seem to do fairly well - given a bit of time!

    Hope we'll soon hear better news from you!
