I am currently waiting for an official diagnosis of my condition after having CFS/Fibro symptoms for the last 3 months. My GP has at last referred me to a specialist at my local hospital but they will not take referrals until after at least 3 months of suffering the symptoms and I am waiting for an appointment. the frustration is enormous! The worst thing for me at the moment is the pain I experience in my neck particularly on the left hand side and across the back of my shoulders and in both arms. Sometimes the pain is unbearable. I have been prescribed cocodamol but am reluctant to take these as they knock me out and I cannot function. I tried Amyltriptiline but this just made me feel like a zombie and ill. I am also taking a concoction of supplements - Zinc and Vit C, Vit B complex, Co-Q10 and D-Ribose which seem to help with the general tiredness but not the pain Can anyone recommend any good pain relief which does not make you drowsy?
