Hi, I've never posted in any of these groups before as I hate to dwell on things but I'm desperate for help!
I'm 26 years old and was diagnosed with fibromyalgia about 2 years ago. Back then it was manageable. I was always very active (used to go running, did mechanics, worked very physical jobs, would do very physical things that would shock most people because I was a 'girl' I started to deteriorate about a year ago and.have been on many different medications.
About 3 months ago I went down hill very fast and my doctor said there was nothing else they could give me or do to help.
I haven't been to work for 3 months as I can hardly stand up. I've been to the pain clinic and am registered to start at one of there seminars (full until May!)
I've tried acupuncture, massages, changed my diet, I drink only water. I've tried so much, I force myself to walk my dog but have to have somebody with me to help me as I can't always walk on my own, but hey at least I'm out of the house and doing what I enjoy.
I'm at a loss as of what to do now. These last few weeks I'm just getting worse and worse, I can hardly stand, constant pain, I had to be carried to bed one night and this morning I couldn't get up!!
I have a very high pain threshold but this is unbearable. It's getting worse daily, and I'm so scared!!
Ive had tramadol, gabbapentine, pregabin, amitriptyline & naproxen.
I'm now on just cocodamol(8x a day) sertraline (for depression) mebeverine & cosmocol (for stomach issues) and I take vitamins.
What else can I do? Is it normal for me to be going down hill so quickly, every week the pain finds a new place and leaves me stuck on the sofa unable to move.
Any advise is much appreciated.
Sorry for such a long rant.
