    Anyone trying to live without prescription drugs?

    I took Lyrica a couple years ago for 3 weeks, but stopped due to the side effects...dizziness and constant sleepiness. Now my pain is intense again and my doc prescribed Cymbalta. Sounds like the side effects can be pretty bad with this one too. I really don't want to start taking it. Is...

    New to the forum (UK)

    Hi there. I just joined today after finally getting a bit peeved about my fibro. I was diagnosed last year, but have pretty much had many symptoms for a long time prior to that, like most sufferers.

I used to be a serious carnivore and a terrible eater of processed foods and sugars. I've been working on a...

    Doctor Doesn't Believe Fibromyalgia is a Real Diagnosis

    Hi, I have been having medical issues for at least eight years, and have been brushed off and offered antidepressants for most of them. Fall of 2013, I got a lot worse. Extreme fatigue, moderate pain to severe at times, insomnia, waking up like I took a beating all night long, cannot find...

    Gabapentin Reaction

    A few weeks ago I was prescribed Gabapentin to help with sleep. Earlier this week I was taken to the ER for what was thought to be an allergic reaction to the new med. In truth some of my symptoms were caused by the Gabapentin but not the serious ones. While in the ER blood panels were done...
