I am currently going through a 4 year long process of being diagnosed with fibromyalgia, nobody has known why ive been in so much pain for so long bit finally ive found a consultant that believes i have fibro like i have thought all these years. My pain is 24/7 i cant sleep ive lost a ridiculous amount of weight because i cant eat, i pass out and faint due to all this. I am currently on naproxen but they give me sickness and blurred eyes. Ive been told if i get diagnosed with fibro that i will be put on amitriptyline which worry's me as i am only 20 i dont ant to be on drugs all my life but im having to come to terms that i probably will have to be. Anyone that has fibro or is on amitriptyline could you please give me any insight, its all very new and quite scary to me and im never one to ask for help or advice but i know i need it. Many thanks x
