I wonder if you might obtain some experienced advice on this topic over on HU's Fibromyalgia Action UK? healthunlocked.com/fibromya...

I've no idea if something like gabapentin is generally found to be more useful if it is fibromyalgia - or if by and large people with fibro. have found a basic package of interventions and medications that work pretty well for a fair number of people.

There are Pain Clinics with a very fine reputation in helping people with fibromyalgia so you might request a referral to one of those if the diagnosis is confirmed for you? E.g., The Walton: thewaltoncentre.nhs.uk/112/...

and there are a couple in London, iirc.


Thank you I've just registered on the fibro site I was actually under the pain clinic Walton were I had nerve blockers in back which never worked and after that the consultant actually said there wasn't anything more he could do lol But as u said wait for the diagnosis of fibro then I will ask to be referred to the pain clinic who specialize in fibro x
