Hi everybody. Went to the doctor's this morning, as the orthopaedic consultant had asked my GP to organise better pain control for me. I've noticed that, apart from the pain in my hips, knees, feet and hands, my muscles are rather tender. The tops of my arms are sore if I press them. Anyway, to cut a long story short, I've now got to have blood tests to rule out polymyalgia rheumatica and any thyroid problem and he's thinking it's possible I may have fibromyalgia. I already have IBS and the two can go together, apparently. Spoke to him about the libido on Amitriptyline and he has changed it to Nortriptyline and also upped the dosage, as this would be a frontline treatment for fibromyalgia. So, we'll see what happens. I'm to go back in a month. I'm just glad it's being looked into further as I've felt rather under the weather the past few months.
Does anybody else have either of these, as well as arthritis? I suppose I will still need further injections into my thumbs, though! :xmas_evil:
