Hi, I have had some major personal stress over the last Year and a half. And then started getting the following Symptoms - Stiffness, Fatigue, mild headaches and Jaw ache, IBS, anxiety, Widespread pain all over my body (Neck, Arms, shoulders, elbows, back, hips, Kness and so on) The way i discribe my pain is - imagine you are at the Gym, and pick up some weights that are way to heavy, and then Hold them out either side of you, that burning sensation and the ache! That's how i feel everyday. I have been to Physio, I have been to Pain Management sessions and also Accupunture. I was put on Codine, then Co-dydromal, then Nortriptyline as none of these worked i have now been put on 20mg Citalopram. I have had blood test's for Full blood count, Anti-Nuclear Antibodies, Creatine Kinase, C Reactive Protine, Rheumatoid Factor, Thyroid Function and Vitamin D along with many others. All Came back Satisfactory! Last Night i spoke to my doctor and due to the fact that i am fed up and want to get on with my life i had a stern word and asked What Next, I've done all of the above and still havent had a Diagnosis, the doector asked me what i want her to do, Last time we spoke she mentioned a refferal to Rheumatology, so i asked about that, she then proceeded to ask me what i want to get out of the refferal.... I advised her that i want offically know what is wrong with me, it's no good telling my husband or my Boss that the doctors "Think" i have Fibromyalgia. and if she wasn't the person to give me a Diagnosis then i want to see sombody that can..... She has no agreed to referr me, so hopefully i will get a official Diagnosis not just a Label... Anybody else find they lack support from there GP for Cronic Pain/Fibro/Fatigue???
