I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia last year after a long battle to get my "sympotms" taken seriously by the GP etc. I am feeling more positive and better about the whole thing since I started taking Fluoxetine (amatriptalyne was a big no no for me!) but I still can't seem to lose weight (I don't eat a whole lot and what I do eat isn't crappy food) and still get symptoms that I think are linked to thyroid.
Would it be worthwhile trying to get my new GP, who has been great with supporting me with Fibro, to do more tests? When I had them done initially they were "in range" but my cortisol was high on the blood test but then "to the high end of normal" in the 24h urine test.
As all of you know, it's hard enough to get them to listen when you are first experiencing symptoms but now I'm worried I'll be seen as a pest as I've had a diagnosis!
Thanks in advance for any advice.
