I had my telephone consultation with her today and I told her all about the book by Dr Myhill.
She had already seen some of the research that shows that the source of CFS/Fibro is due to mitochondrial failure and she agrees it makes sense.
I explained about the sleep side of things and how I am still struggling and the minute I told her about my psychotherapy starting this week she said that without a doubt I need to be rested for that.
She has prescribed two weeks of higher strength zopiclone for me!! Thank the Starry Skies!!!
So I now have a chance to get a normal sleeping pattern going again.
I came off the phone and just burst into tears of relief. My brain has been wittering about the call, and I fully expected to be turned down. The tears were just sheer relief.
I was very, very down yesterday, but I have that sense of hope back again 🙂
My GP stressed again that they cannot prescribe it long term. But she is going to buy the book. I can only hope that what she reads will influence a change in that current policy.
I am really, seriously looking forward to some proper, decent healing sleep tonight.
