I have joined in the hope of getting some advice .. for about 2 years I have been under the hospital with suspected arthritis then it was ankilosing spondylitis. A further mri showed I have minimal wear and tear lower spine . My last visit to my consultant was December when he said it’s possible I have fybromyalgia he gave me a leaflet and sent me packing for physio and s prescription for amatryptaline( I think that’s how it’s spelt ) . But over a month in I haven’t felt any benefits from it and have not moved out of bed all weekend ( apart from to struggle to the loo) . My whole body feels likes it’s been crushed but my lower back and right arm feels worse . Could I get something stronger for the pain ( I don’t like taking meds ) but I can’t carry on as I am it’s not fair on my children when I get pained like this
