Treatments For Fibro In UK?

Treatments For Fibro In UK?

I have been taking 150mg serteraline and 20mg of amitriptyline for a while now and the only change I have seen is that I sleep slightly better than before. These pills are obviously not pain meds as I try to avoid them at all costs but its a real struggle when you can't move for days at a time.
Can anyone being treated for fibromyalgia in the UK tell me what has helped them for the pain etc. I need to research before going to the doctor as they are not very clued up about fibro.

Hydroxychloroquin

Hydroxychloroquin

May not be fibro related but I saw my rheumatologist last Wednesday who started me on this medication and I just wondered if anyone else is on it?

Apparently it is an antimalarial drug but is given to people with autoimmune conditions as she feels I may have an autoimmune condition as well. It can take up to 4 months to work but since taking it my pain has increased throughout the day and was wondering if anyone had experience of this medication. She said it wasn't a pain killer so to continue… read more

Botox For Headaches

I need help my friends.
Since fibro I started get serve chronic daily migraines and tension headaches plus a new one I think cluster headaches.

Has anyone had this done? Any input would be great.… read more

Sleep Study Reassurance? Treatment Options?

Sleep Study Reassurance? Treatment Options?

I'm being sent for one, new doc while my regular one - who wasn't helping anymore just pat on the head try mindfulness, prescribes whatever I asked for and get out of my office - he believes that the reason my antidepressants aren't working well enough and possibly other symptoms, could be related to sleep problems. I guess to sleep apnea.

I'm nervous about the study. I'm told it's easy and painless, so it isn't that. I am positive they are going to give me heck about… read more

The study is not really difficult. If you sleep in the lab you have to sleep on your back, at least I did. That one said I had sleep apnea. The last one… read more
