Hi there from wales uk,
I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia about 9 years ago along with osteoarthritis. I have since been diagnosed with hyper-mobility something i have never really heard off. i had never heard of fibromyalgia until i had been diagnosed, but now i have been diagnosed with hyper-mobility i am wondering if i do have fibromyalgia at all. I have been to the pain clinics, rhumatologist to which i have now been taken of the list to go back and see him, i also have walking issues, to which i have to use a wheel chair when i go out. i have a space in between my left knee joint which doesnt help either and my spine is also giving up on me. i was on 22 medications a day at some point for pain and fatigue. i was wondering if any one else has what i have ? and what helps you with the intense pain with these conditions.
They say light exercises help, tried and they dont, i have tried walking, my feet burn,tried all the various meds but some how my body just does not respond to them, why i dont know. Has any one tried morphine and how does this effect you if you have or are taking it? what other help is there for these conditions?
I cant seem to win in this battle. i battle with pain and fatigue big time every day.
My dr wants to refer me to pain clinic but its miles away and i am not very good at travelling. I have already been to this sort of thing, and i am guessing that an fibromyalgia clinic is going to be based around the same thing. help !!
