I just joined today, and this is my first comment. I have not been diagnosed with anything yet but i suspect possible Fibromyalgia.
I have had IBS for about 8 years (brother has Chrons, mother and uncle IBS) and had investigations which amounted to nothing. since Jan this year a pain in my side has increased, i now have it under my breast and all along my upper back and upper left flank. Pain is worse after eating, however it is constantly there, like a dull ache with sharp points at times.
I am taking Gabapentin 900mg per day, GP is starting me on Lansoprazole today, I take Setraline for anxiety and depression plus Propanolol. GP has said if Lansoprazole doesnt work he will refer me to Gastro specialist. And Cocodamol when needed.
i just feel sore all the time, not great. No energy, putting on weight due to inactivity at the heaviest i have ever been, not eating meals really just snacking throughout the day. Back sore, stomach sore - I work in an office so sit down all day. When I am at home cleaning and keeping busy I am okay, it is the minute I stop I feel rotten, fluey like symptoms.... I could go on and on.
GP said today that he has exhausted all options, I have not mentioned Fibro to him as I feel that I will not be taken seriously enough. I don't know what to do. Any advice would be much appreciated xx
