When Melissa’s rheumatologist diagnosed her with Fibromyalgia it came as a relief. Two years of referrals to various specialists and five steroid injections into her spine and hip had made no difference to her chronic hip pain.
After her diagnosis, Melissa wanted a form of exercise that would suit her current abilities and that would build flexibility, decrease her pain and provide relaxation time.
Melissa’s rheumatologist proposed a management plan that included a low dose of Endep to provide pain relief. Melissa’s GP recommended that Melissa attend Yoga for Pain to improve her function which would make the most of the positive effects of the medication.
