HI everyone, I'm new here, I was diagnosed 2 yrs ago with fibromyalgia in a country where we've no specialists dealing with these conditions. It has been very hard coping because of this, I feel like the doctors are impatient and almost irritated with me. I do my research when i experience different 'symptoms', and even though i have great family support i feel so alone and that no one understands what its really like. I hope to find here, a better understanding of what i am now going through and what i could expect in the near and distant future. Also to find and be a support to others. I have been coping without meds for the past 9 mnths, I was on a combo of gabapentine and amitriptyline, it worked alright controlling the pain but not the other symptoms. I found it difficult to cope with the side effects so i withdrew from it. Now there are a few new symptoms affecting me and i was wondering whether others have these experiences. When i wake in the morning, i have the usual fatigue, but i experience a strange weakening, tingling sensation in my legs. It feels disabling and almost like it is impossible to move them, until i try. Also, the neck pain has gotten worse and it presents with a headache that relieves if i put lots of pressure on it with my fingers. The pain seems to radiate to my eyes, forehead and cheek area when i put pressure on it. Longing to hear from you wonderful people.
