I'm 25 and live with fibromyalgia, hypo-thyroidism, auto-immune urticaria and angiodema. I work as an ops manager (which can be stressful), try to go to the gym 4/5 times per week and eat a healthy balanced diet. I don't feel sorry for myself (because why would I?!), I'm pragmatic and I get on with it, it has taken me 7 years to get here and I won't have it taken away.
I need to know what alternatives are out there to manage these conditions. I'm sat here, sprawled on the sofa (missing spinning 😩) because my back is playing up, my physiotherapist glazed over this morning because I said the word fibromyalgia and essentially told me to get over it and to be perfectly honest I'm sick to death.
I take nortryptyline, tramadol, liothyronine, levothyroxine and fexofenadine, I have Achilles tendinitis, an injured ACL, issues with my it ban, nasty pain issues with my hands and wrists and I can't fully extend my shoulders. I'm sick of drugs, I'm done with pain, I'm bored of derisive doctors and I need to find something else to try before I lose my mind.
Apologies if I sound like a brat, I'm beginning to lose the plot.
Any recommendations are gratefully received.
