Looking for a GP that understands in doreen area or nearby

Please please help. I’m looking for a GP in the northern suburbs of Melbourne that understands what fibromyalgia is. Not a rheumatologist as I already have one but I’m finding it difficult to find a general practitioner that just get it. Does anyone have any good recommendations they can offer. Thank you in advance.

MJ for sleep. Anyone try it? Edibles?

I know I should not drink in order to sleep but it has been my go to thing. Melatonin makes me sleepy but not enough to go to sleep. My stomach doesn't like the alcohol so I am finally going to try Marijuana which is legal in the state of Colorado. I don't smoke, so it will need to be edibles or tinctures. Success anyone?

Ultram

ive been told by my dr that this drug is not effective in fibro, yet i find it invaluable to manage my pain every day. Especially in the colder months when i have to also add paracetamol and various other meds to cope. Does anyone else find it so useful?

toes curling up

does anyone else have to focus on stopping their toes curling up when relaxing? my legs go numb and my toes curl so tight it creates knots in my calves, i first noticed it when i tried to stand up after sitting for a short while and had immense pain in my legs. I also find walking like travelling through thick mud. my legs only want to put half the effort in and i get so tired and out of breath just trying to walk. My dr assures me this is fibro, but im not so sure.

Pain underneath ribs? Not gallbladder? Anyone else?

I have this HORRIBLE reoccurring pain on my right hand side below my ribs which occasionally travels lower and now across my stomach about halfway. NO ONE can figure out what it is. I have had repeated blood tests, multiple ER/urgent care trips where the initial diagnosis is a gall bladder problem, then none is found whatsoever. I have had CT scans, a HIDA scan; noone can figure it out, so my PCP has put me on Prilosec for GERD, which has not helped or stopped the… read more
