i feel so down at the moment. The constant pain in my back and hands is driving me crazy. I've no energy, I can't do anything I used to. I'm just so exhausted with feeling this way.
Li haven't formally been diagnosed with fibro, waiting on scans I had of my hands, then if no inflammation present the rheumatologist is going to put all my symptoms ( there are many) to Fibro. I've been like this for 20 months now and everything is getting worse. I honestly get up in the morning and feel I've been hit by a bus! I'm so stiff and achy. My back is awful at night. My wrists and hands are constant. The heat sensations in my thigh is now everyday. Muscle twitching everyday now too. I wasn't depressed but I can honestly say with no let up of the symptoms I soon will be..
The doctor has suggested if it is fibro I start on low dose of Amitriptyline. Does anyone have any experience with this and does it help? I'm very against taking prescription drugs if I can help it but I'm desperate now.
Sorry for moaning, I don't like to but no one understands or is interested how I feel. I keep it to myself now but it's bringing me down.
thanks for reading.
