hello, fibromyalgia sufferers & other sufferers with chronic pain. i'm having a problem and need help. i have these widespread pain all around my body and it's been going on since i was 14. (i'm now 20) i've been to my doctors to try to resolve it but they don't know what it could be. i've had blood test done and nothing come up. i did have low vitamin d but took some vitamins pills and results came back good but pain was still with me.
so far, i've taken coproxamol, naproxen, codeine, ibiprofen, diclofenac, amitriptyline & paracetemol. they didn't do anything but make me sleepy or sick due to side-effects. i also tried phyio-therapy; i felt like it made it worse but really it just hurted a lot and still have the pain.
I recently moved and have a new doctor but i got really angry because i asked for new painkillers to try but he thinks 'i've tried them all' but i know that's not true and think my depression is causing the pain and refered me to counselling which i really don't want at the moment. i do have depression but i really don't think my depression is doing this to me. we talked about the pain and he thinks i'm to young to have this pain and that need to bring my mother next time, so he can see her view on it! THIS MADE ME SO ANGRY!!! i'm an adult, i don't need someone to tell you how i feel, if I'm the one in pain!!! i also asked for sleeping pills because I can't ever sleep well and he said no because he's afraid I'll become addicted to it and i tried to reason that it could benefit me but he just shut me of :(.
also, my girlfriend think i could have fibromyalgia, from what i told her about the pain and where it is and other things but don't want to go around thinking it idk.
i need help! what you you guys do in this situation? would you find new gp/doctors? should i book an appointment again w him and explain i really need something? what painkillers do you think i should try next, if i do end up have a better doctor and asking about meds? x
