So i just found out the doctor has been talking about fibromyalgia, the last time i went to see my doctor about my physical health was during the doctors surgery walk in clinic as an emergency as a lot is going on she told me that my anxiety is making my physical health worse so i was put on naproxen, omeprazole and amitriptyline for a few weeks. It came by few days ago i had to have an annual health check up by the doctor as people with learning disabilities have to have them yearly to find out that they wanted to discuss about my physical and emotional health.
First of all during her seeing that im quite bendy because of my hypermobility syndrome, and her pressing on my tendon points and feeling my stomach she then after talked my blood pressure which was normal but said the last doctor has been mentioning fibromyalgia now i was thinking does she mean that she been speaking to the other doctors about it or was she saying it subtlely at me?
So she has decided as i have had a positive response over the amitriptyline for my mood in evening and slept well on it that she is going to let me continue with it at night and will review me in 5 weeks.
But that same day i went to do some baking with the people i am supporting and they could see how much pain it was causing me to manage that - all the stiring etc to point i needed frequent sit downs, but was becoming faint and all that. It was to point where yesterday i had a complete fibro flare and im still stuck in bed. How does anyone manage to eat during there fibro flares? I can get ready to eat cooked cold chicken and have salad or prawns or whatever that does not use the use of a cooker but sometimes u just get so stuck in the bed but have to get out of bed for the loo but when u need to do washing up its taking alot of effort to manage and do a simply thing
Also she agreed to come of gluten totally no test is showing coeliac disease but probably have a gluten sensitivity but seeing gastro is good idea too because they can figure out what could be going on.
