After being in constant pain with my back and other area
[More]s, I was finally diagnosed with Fibromayalgia on Monday. Also have had the burning feet for 16months, after visiting GP's, clinics, etc., the wonderful Dr. Lillicrap in Addenbrookes Hospital diagnosed me with Erythromelalgia. I cried, it was such a relief to know there was actually a name for this pain, and that someone was taking me serious.
Hopefully the Naproxen I have been prescribed will help with the EM, and then move on to help the FM.
I can honestly say, hand on heart, I feel soooo sorry for any fellow sufferer's, or if you have the symptoms and it hasn't been diagnosed then push to see a Dr. in Rheumotology as soon as.
