Just saying hello to everyone.
A little bit of history. I have had pain for 3 plus years. Been going to see the doc on a regular basis complaining of pain, unable to sleep [probably depression as well due to pain]. all I was given at first were pain killers and one GP said ''it was all in my head''. Then one GP said Fibro. and put me on Amitryptyline 20mg to start plus added Tramadol. Went back to see same GP who diagnoisised Fibro and when he read my notes said what idiot GP said you had Fibro I told him he did.
More blood tests showed that my CRP and ERS levels were up so I was referred to Rheumy. Rheumy put me on Methx, sulfslasadine and hydro [sorry about spelling]. Took them for 6 month but no improvement and I was still in pain. so she stopped treatment. She referred me to pain clinic.
Saw pain clinic last month and he prescribed Pregablin to go with my paracetamol, tramadol and amirtryptyline. Pain is no better. No one can touch me I am so sensitive. All my joints hurt like hell and most are swollen. Yet even pain clinic can tell me what's wrong with me [yet].
To cap it all I now have a problem with my jaw. I saw a dentist 3 times because I thought it was toothache. I can hardly eat or drink anything and my whole face and neck are swollen.. I have been given Naproxen and will be seeing ENT [was put in as urgent] on Christmas Eve.
Sorry for long moan.
