Hi I’m new to this forum. I have had neck pain after fusion for 8 years but have noticed the last couple of years I have lots of signs of fibromyalgia. After a visit to my doctor today she confirmed that I do and wants me to start on a new antidepressant she thinks might help. I find I am getting worse where I now have pain all over my body, sometimes worse than others. I sometimes feel so exhausted than I have to lay on the couch and it is so hard to explain to people why I am exhausted after doing things that others don’t think twice about. Before this diagnosis I was feeling either that I am very unfit or just a bit of a weakling. I am so happy to see how other people cope and getting feedback and learning more.
