Hi just wanted some advice. A few years ago I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. Symptoms were manageable with help from my gp and regular acupuncture. When I moved and changed gp the gp at the time didn’t believe I had fibromyalgia and told me it was muscle tension and that my weight was an issue ( I was a size 14/16 at the time) and I have coped with symptoms ever since. Recently I have had quite bad anxiety and depression due to family illness. My ibs symptoms have gotten unmanageable with extreme pain at times. I am slo experiencing upper back pain with numbness and pins and needles. Sometimes I ache so much it’s an effort to walk up the stairs or to plait my hair. I am constantly exhausted. I e had routine bloods which showed no anaemia or inflammation. I don’t know where to turn or indeed trust my doctors.
