    Hi all,
    Its sharon d here hope youre all having a better day & arent in too much pain.
    Im afraid im at the end of my tether & you peeps are the only ones i can turn to.
    Ive had cfs+fibro for 6yrs now when my then gp diagnosed me he put me on anti-inflamms with added pkiller+dihydrecodeine.
    I went back cecause i was hardly able to move the pain & stiffness were that bad














































    Hi all,
    Hope youre not in too much pain.
    Im in pain,frustrated,sick of this dd & am now thinking of changing my gp as im sure he doesnt know hes treating fibro.
    6yrs ago i got dx & saw a rheumy at my home i was so ill,he told me i had no neurological damage which was good.
    To me that meant nothing as i was in so much pain,i went to my doc & begged him to refer me to see rheumy again.
    He refused & i went seriously downhill & have carried on doing so for the past 6yrs.
    I red posts about the various drugs you take for fibro & have never heard of them.
    I wonder why ive never been put on any of them,ive only ever had anti inflamms with a pain killer+strong pkillers,anti depressants & steroids.
    6yrs on my pain is still there,i ache & am chronically tired i am so sick of being like this,somethings gonna have to give.
    I moved 18mths ago & got a doc near my home,hes ok as a doc but doesnt seem to know anything about fibro & thats gonna have to change.
    Im going to write to a UK fibro group & ask them to send me fibro info for doctors.
    He asks how i am if i go to see him usually with my daughter.
    I dont take any pain meds only cipramil,anti depressants.
    The docs in the states seem to know more about fibro than the UK docs ive had over the past 6yrs,they seriously need educating.
    I have counselling which helps alot but i wonder if my doc realises what effect all the trauma in my life has had on me.
    Hes told me i cant sit around crying all the time,does he think i enjoy doing this?
    I tell him im trying really hard to be positive & i walk everywhere as i dont drive,use the bus to do my shopping.
    I feel hes treatin me as a patient with depression & yes im depressed.
    But im more frustrated that you peeps are the only one s that really understand me.
    If i got info for him hed tell me hes to busy to read it or something like that,what can i do?any advice would be gratefully recieved.
    Moan over stay positive & lol+very gentl hugs sharon d

    Hi skeesix,
    Thanks for your message its good to hear from you & yes youre right i will have to get another doctor.
    The problem with that is i dont drive & before ive checked i know that the docs at the other surgeries wont specialise in Fibro.
    My doctor listens what else can he do & that means alot to me to have a doctor who is prepared to listen.
    I take cipramil anti depressants now because ive stopped taking pain meds as they had no effect.
    Thanks for listening sharon d
    Very gentle hugs for you
