Trial patient for Fibromyalgia 

After the initial bad couple of years with trying different medications with this condition and feeling disgusted with just constantly being fed more pills.  I wanted to try to put this ‘situation’ to some good use.

There is not a cure for #fibromyalgia and as the nervous system and mind are so complex and every single person is different I doubt there we will be.  But what if a combination of holistic and medical treatments were available to improve our symptoms and more importantly quieten down the root cause; our ‘short circuiting’ nervous system and brain?

I spent an afternoon searching on the internet for clinical trials in the UK and came across this site here, you can search the medical condition and even an area of the UK and see what is available, sign up, contact people for more information or even just ask to be kept informed.  Brilliant I thought!!  Let’s get involved, I’m game. 

I was turned down for one as I had took Tramadol in the last 6 months and one had no funding to pay for my travel, but I was accepted for another.

I am just waiting for a date to travel over for the one day trial and they have offered to pay for me to travel and my time plus I can spend some time with a Fibro specialist to talk about anything I want.  Fantastic…..

I will keep you all posted, but why don’t you take a look at the site and see what you think?

Hi there, I am a busy mum who had found a new lease in life by completing my diploma in Hypnotherapy and NLP and led a successful part-time online hypnotherapy business, preparing personalised online recordings and using tried and tested NLP techniques as homework for my clients. I found out I had advanced degenerative disease in my spine over 10 years ago and then spondyliothesis 4 years ago. 2 of my lumbar discs collapsed and I needed a fusion in March 2014, but left the other collapsed disc in place. It was then that things got really weird. It took me over 2 years to get diagnosed with Fibromyalgia which I developed after the surgery and that is when the fun started........ I now have Osteoarthritis in my neck and have another 2 discs that are collapsing into my spinal column. I am considering having a double fusion to reduce the pain.

    1. Hi there thank you. I am really trying hard to love this condition as it’s going to be with me for life, so I am willing to try any and every approach and I’ll share them all with everyone. If I can help one other person love this condition them I will be happy 👌

      1. I don’t know if I’ll ever learn to love it, but I’ve learned to accept it……..It is what it is and I can’t change it. It’s not going away. I’ve had it since childhood, most likely, but diagnosed in my early 20’s. And, as I always say, IT COULD ALWAYS BE WORSE. Some days I feel to give up, that’s just part of the journey, living with a rather long list of invisible, chronic illnesses. I meditate a lot! That has been my saving Grace…………………….took a lot of patience and a lot of practice, but thankfully, I didn’t give up, and now reap the benefits of daily meditation. Take care. Peace out! 🙂

  1. I’m trying very hard to love it, but some days it’s a love hate relationship. Especially when I have stuff planned then can’t physically make it. The mindfulness meditation is fantastic and I feel feel calmer, more accepting of this condition and patient. I really want to get my got body back and that is going to be much harder to achieve. You’re right things could be worse. X
