I received a phone call on Thursday to attend clinic today, been waiting since August. The consultant asked about my symptoms and then did a quick examination of all my sore spots, she was asking about my dry eyes and ibs. That was it very quick, gave me a helpful leaflet and a lot of the fibromyalgia symptoms seem to fit. She asked about my exercise levels and said I must do more, think she was hinting that I need to loose weight. Had blood test, hand feet and chest x Ray and she will write to me with results of these. She will ask my gp to arrange physio and maybe anti inflammatory tablets, they may upset my stomach more?
Glad I have answers now although I have never heard of fibromyalgia until today and I am pleased I coped well as no one was available to come with me today and the school phoned me to say my son was sick in the middle of clinic!
