sweater - January 20

HI I AM NEW TO THIS SITE, I AM 38 ,MARRIED & HAVE A 7 YR OLD. MY FM HAS BEEN PARTICALLY BAD FOR THE PAST 18-24 MONTHS.I WENT TO SEE MY GP THE OTHER DAY AND I EXPLAINED THAT IT TOOK EVERY OUNCE OF ENERGY TO GO TO SEE HER COS THE CFS IS REALLY BAD,I ALSO EXPLAINED THAT ALL OF MY DAYS ARE SPENT IN AGONY OR CATCHING UP ON SLEEP WHEN THE PAIN ALLOWS ME. SHE TURNED ROUND AND TOLD ME THAT SHE WANTS TO SEND ME FOR EXTENSIVE PHYSIO (6 HRS A DAY) & HYDROTHERAPY. I AM AMAZED THAT SHE EVEN SUGGESTED THIS BECAUSE I CAN BARELY GET UP TO GO TO THE TOILET, AND SHE SAID SHE WANTED ME TO DO 3 WEEKS OF THIS TREATMENT IS IT ME OR IS SHE MAD? SHE ALSO CLAIMS TO KNOW A LOT ABOUT FMS & CFS XX

she has got to be out of her mind!!! they do say that water therapy is suppose to help tremendously with the pain from FMS but 6 hours a day???!!!! wow. my doc tells me to exercise at least 30 min a day and i struggle with that...so good luck with this sandra!!!

Barking mad would be my estimation. I suspect that she is one of those doctors who thinks people with Fibromyalgia (FMS) are just lazy hypochondriacs. I would not survive 15 minutes of her proposed "treatment" never mind 6 hours. Find someone else to manage your FMS. Take care.

I totally agree with stephanyb11 and fantod! What is she thinking, six hours???? I struggle with my exercises everyday and need to adjust my meds to accomplish these, I can't imagine what I'd have to take to do six hours. Oh maybe an elephant tranquilizer, but then again I'd be unconscious. Good luck sweater, Patty

He she raven mad!!! my doctor say water would be good, if I can get near it, a little stretching here, a little feather weight here and maybe a little dance is about what she think someone with FMS should do. Sure, I've read about aerobic excercise for fibro people, but never thought in the world that they would want us to do 6 hours a day for three weeks. What is she, nuts..... has she losts her marbles. I would say no, no and no. You can try 20 to 30 minutes of water therepy and work at going into the water therapy to an hour after you get use to it, and that you feel comfortable. But as soon as you start getting a flare, you need to pull back and only do 20 minutes.

Sure a little excersie helps, but how much is too much, six hours is way too much. I'd ask her to get her head examine.
