Over the last 8 weeks I have been suffering from pain and burning sensation across my shoulders, down both arms, from my neck down past my shoulder blades and all across the top of my back.
In the last 4 weeks symtoms have increased and have spread to my lower back and down my right leg as well. My doctor has told me the leg problem is siatica and she thinks the rest of my back and arm problems is fibromyaglia. I have had an x-ray and standard blood tests done which have all been clear apart from slightly high colesterol level.
As well as all of these symtoms I have had problems sleeping, get confused easily, mood swings, pins and needles and having problems saying whats in my head.
Doctor has put me on 40mg of amitriptyline, 500mg of naproxen and 15/500mg of kapake. I don't really feel any benefit from the amitirptyline apart from making it very hard to get up in the morning. The rest sort of helps with the pain but find it very difficult to normal every day tasks which is extremely frustrating.
I have two young kids and a 3rd on the way so this has come at "great" time. Doctor says she is thinks it is fibromyaglia but it might not be which is a real help.
