Hi I'm new to this so bare with me! I'm a mum of 1 10 year old daughter and am about 8 weeks pregnant.
I have my 1st midwife appt in 2 days but I'm struggling. I have depression anxiety and fibromyalgia, and although stopping medication isn't recommended I did it because I don't want to risk any damage to my baby. However I am really struggling to manage my fibromyalgia and am in Constant pain and a constant state of stress- something I was sure GP would jump to help sort out considering how damaging stress can be to baby's development too. Since stopping meds I had multiple full blown panic attacks daily and through the night for well over a week after stopping medication and have seen 2 separate doctors about it- both of whom were sweet but made no attempt to actually help. They both said speak to midwife- midwife department said speak to GP.
Am I mad or is this pretty unacceptable? Everything I've read says to seek help Immediately if you have these problems, yet no professional seems to want to help- just want to pass the buck and I feel completely fobbed off.
I don't want to feel like this for the whole of this pregnancy as I'm happy to be pregnant, I'm feeling so disappointed and let down by the lack of help
anyone else been through this or anything similar? Im at my wits end and am expecting that when I see midwife in 2 days to just be told to see GP again.
