    Is anyone familiar with the drug Savella and has it helped them?

    Hello, my name is Sylvie I have been on Lyrica, Cymbalta and now wondering about Savella? What are the side effects, does one put weight on using that medication? Also does one know of any analsegic pain gel or cream that soothes fibromyalgia?

    Roller coaster symptoms.

    Hi , I'm just so tired of the never knowing what I'm going to wake up feeling like. June and July are hard months ? Sick of waking up knowing it's going to be a lot of work! Even after taking my medication I'm still not able to think straight for at least 2 hours. Then it gets okay for...

    Useless drugs

    Hi all, Since I was diagnosed (and before), I've probably tried every OTC drug I can think of to help with my pain, and am amassing a real pile of useless drugs. The Cymbalta helps my pain most of the time, but when it's bad it's bad, and nothing else I've tried will help. My counter is...

    Finally accepting my diagnosis...need help coping

    I have suffered with pain for the last 5 years and just recently was officially diagnosed with fibromyalgia. I've just realized that I have been in denial of this because it seems so vague since there is nothing seemingly "wrong" or they don't really know what causes it. I have been on...

    Random symptoms: Fibro related or not?

    Hi all, As with any new diagnosis, you start to wonder if all kind of other things are related. There are a few symptoms I've noticed that may or may not be related to Fibro (or Celiac) but wanted to ask about: 1. rapid weight loss: I've lost 10lb since March! This is a good thing, since I'd...

    Fibro + Celiac + Time-o-the-Month = ARGH!!!

    Hi, Here to vent, obviously. I'm having a rough week. Just when I think "wow, this Cymbalta crap is actually helping", BAM here comes the pain. Was stuck at home on Friday, and again yesterday with the aches. On top of which I'm having bad period cramps this month (first since my diagnosis). On...

    Weaning down from Cymbalta then on Savella

    Good morning. I've been on Cymbalta for 7-8 years for my fibro & chronic depression. My neurologist wants me to try Savella as some fibro symptoms have become less manageable (leg pain primarily). I'm on 120 mg of Cymbalta & have been for years. He had me taper to 60 mg for 14 days then I'll...
