    Cymbalta experience- did it help you? I'm starting it today...

    I did decide to go from 120 mg of Cymbalta down to 60 mg about a week ago. Pain has been getting worse daily. I don’t know if it’s because of side effects from taking less, or if I’m having more pain because there’s less in my system! Right now I don’t feel like I want to wait to find out...

    Extreme Fatigue

    Thank you, D Raini. I had to cut back on coffee, even though I only have two cups in the morning and that’s it, but the second cup started giving me the jitters for some reason. I miss that second cup! About 2-3 hours after I wake up in the morning (feeling fatigued even then), I simply have...

    Extreme Fatigue

    Hi D Raini, welcome! I also have debilitating fatigue. I am not sure if it is due to Fibro or Long Covid, which I also have and have had going on 7 months now (could it be that for you?). It’s horrible to feel this way every. single. day. - just ZERO energy & fatigue, have to go back to bed for...

    Cymbalta experience- did it help you? I'm starting it today...

    Hi Jennifer, My doctor prescribed Cymbalta for peripheral neuropathy. It helps a little with the numbness and tingling in my feet. I was already taking it when I was diagnosed with fibro, but I don't feel that it helps with fibro pain, although I am questioning even the fibro diagnosis...

    What is a Robot?

    Same here, but I did “try” quite a few things in the 70’s (had a lot of fun too - maybe one of those “don’t ask don’t tell” things!). But the 70’s were a loooooong time ago. Any of that stuff would probably give me a heart attack now!

    Diagnosed with CFS/ME but I have more symptoms of Fibromyalgia

    Thank you, Jemima, for the kind and supportive words. As you know, that in itself helps so much. I switched to this doctor a few months ago, and she is the first one who even mentioned fibromyalgia. She's been open to any blood tests I've requested and seemed quite supportive, so I was...

    What is a Robot?

    You sure have that right! Very astute way of putting it. So many people I know, especially younger people, just don't seem to be concerned about it, or even want to know it is happening.

    What is a Robot?

    Now I'm curious to know how you phrased it! (Hmmm....maybe "special" mushrooms are the answer to fibromyalgia issues - who knows?!) But I did hesitate to ask. :unsure: If I had thought about it for a while I think I would have figured it out.

    Diagnosed with CFS/ME but I have more symptoms of Fibromyalgia

    Well, my doctor responded that if I've had CFS/EBV, MONO in the past, my body has the antibodies to fight them off so I wouldn't be having any of them now. This doesn't quite fall in line with articles on how they can be re-triggered by Covid, or why there are blood tests to determine both...

    Experiences with Lyrica?

    KimsCorner: Did you experience any weight gain with Lyrica? It was helping me with Neuropathy; I'm not sure about fibromyalgia, but I gained five pounds right away.
