Hi all, I didn't have a very successfull appointment last week. My GP basically told me that you don't get 'diagnosed with ME', that she is going to re-do all the same tests I've been through (just had bloods taken yesterday). She was in such a rush to get me out of the chair as she was already running late that she skipped over the majority of my symptoms. She never did anything or said anything about the chest pains, stiffness in the morning (it's gotten so bad I wake up and cannot move or grip anything for the first wee while). I had to mention about 3 times that Ibruprofen/Paracetemol does NOT give me any pain relief when I have severe muscle/joint pains - she told me she would write a prescription for codeine prosphate, which I now have. She told me to book another appointment with her next week and maybe she will put me on amitriptyline. I have this appointment with her tomorrow to disucuss. Has anyone had any experience on amitriptyline? Please...any replies would be soo appreciated. At the end of my tether.
