Subject: Stupid fibromyalgia

Hi seriously need to vent as I have had enough well and truly had it. I have fibromyalgia flare up I am sick of pain killers although I'm taking them I'm sick of having stiff fingers I can't even open jars or use a tin opener I'm sick of it it's not fair I was on diazepam which was really good but quite rightly I can't use it permanently so had to come off but my rheumatologist is a useless waste of space who hasn't tackled my fibromyalgia yet I have no diazepam left so I got to point of giving up

Hi Laura. I have fibromyalgia and RA. My doctor has recently given me Nortriptyline for the fibromyalgia. It replaces diazepam for long term use and is non addictive. It is an antidepressant which can be used in fibro. You take one at night. It definately helps the fibro. Try asking your consultant for alternatives to diazepam. Hope all goes ok. p.s keep warm, getting cold makes fibro worse.
