Daffodil - January 26

I have recently been diagnosed, but believe I have been a sufferer for nearly 20 years....my doctors are quick off the mark !! ;) lol I have found that amitryptilline has helped with my sleep problems, and the pain is definately tolerable most days. However it is winter here in the UK and I find that I dont have such good days when the daylight is poor, or if the weather suddenly becomes colder. Is this common?
Also, has anyone who takes amitryptilline found that it has an accumalative effect, ie. do synptoms improve the longer you take it.....or can I expect this to be as good as it gets?

Not sure about the meds, however I experience the samething when the weather shifts. Summer time seems to be my best time of the year with little to no symptoms.

My pain and stiffness varies greatly right along with the Pennsylvania winter. I can't wait for warmer weather! Good luck, Daffodil!

Hi Daffodil: I am told by doctors that sleep and stress levels are important to keep in control and if you can do this then you are doing the right thing. Some people have lighter symptoms of Fibromyalgia while others have intolerable pain. Yes, the weather does affect Fibromyalgia patients so try to keep warm and a sun lamp might be a possibility to put in your home to help in these cold and winter months. I've been thinking about that myself. :)

I too suffer more in the cold winter.
