I discovered here purely by chance yesterday and have been trying to empower myself by gleaning information. I am actually feeling more dismal! I can't get my actual results until Wednesday (I'm away until then) so I don't know where I stand. I've been given the startup meds!
From reading on here things are clicking into place. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia a couple of years ago and was given painkillers for it to take as and when. I have the most DREADFUL palpitations and racing heart...the GP said it was due to anxiety and the stress I've been under. I've had heart traces done and 'all is normal', but they frighten me. Ive been given diazepam to take if the palpitations become a nuisance.
I cry. Oh boy, do I cry..at the drop of a hat! It is embarrassing! This past week because I have been more busy than usual I actually am suffering from terrible exhaustion..I found it hard to move my arms last night or put one foot in front of the other. I'm going on..but I'm just saying that this site has opened my eyes.
I'm trying to get my head around the situation. I want so much to feel better again and in control and have energy. My other half is trying to understand but he thinks that researching is going to make me feel worse. I want to know ..are there any NATURAL remedies to help? Unless I've missed it on here, what vitamins, minerals, healthy eating patterns could help me. What about the other pills I've been prescribed..the Diazepam and the Codiene Phosphate. Will these affect the Levo?? My GP, a new one to me, was most unwilling and unhelpful in advice.
Sorry to whinge on! I feel so very alone with the 'problem' right now.
