Advice on coping with Fibromyalgia
I have decided to join because I feel very alone through this. I am married but I know its impossible for anyone to understand how it feels to have fibro. I have struggled with Chronic pain for the past 7 years or so with it steadily getting worse. I waited for two years to get an appointment with a rhuematologist on the NHS as my mother has rheumatoid arthritis but the blood results didn't show anything. So I arrived at the appointment and was told I had fibro and there was little to no treatment just management of the condition. I pay my taxes and I expected more from my GP as I attend every 3 years approximately, I am not an avid user, this should prove that when I am attending clinic I am truly ill. Anyhow, I wanted to going the forum because I am desperate to find some relief. I am currently struggling with day to day life, at the moment going through a major flare up and have nowhere to turn. Just in dire pain steadily. Any advice is welcome...
