So the day finally came for me to go and get my blood work results and talk about treatment options today. First, my blood work came back normal and negative for the list of test run to rule out autoimmune diseases and other illness that could be causing my chronic fatigue and pain. Big relief...
I was diagnosed in 2009 by my rheumatologist. I took lyrica for a few months. I started having gallbladder problems, and stopped taking. Not sure if the lyrica caused the problem. I have tried different muscle relaxers. I am now taking Carisoprodo. It helps temp when I am willing to take it...
Diagnosed in 2011 and still trying to find relief. Am currently taking Lyrica and starting today adding Savella and Celebrex. Not too sure of these new meds. Oh, and I take Seroquel too but that just knocks me out for about 12-14 hours so I kind of tend to not want to take that unless it's a...
Hello everyone. I am new to this forum. Am about to my wit's end with this pain! I was "diagnosed" with Fibro back in 2011. Blood work for RA, Lupus, etc all ruled out so this is where I stand.

I have FINALLY been Officially diagnosed with Fibromyalgia last month and my doctor and I are having major issues finding something that helps. I also have Vaso Vagal disorder which aggravates my chronic fatigue, and intermittant tachycardia with an occasional extra heart beat.
We have tried...
I am glad I found this group. I have been feeling lonely in this road. I was diagnosed on July of this year. After many tests it finally came to fibromyalgia...they ran many, many tests since they suspected Lupus first. My mom has lupus and my aunt died of renal failure due to...
For those of you with experience with savella and Effexor, I'm hoping you can provide some insight. I was on Effexor for about 8 weeks. It took me about 2 weeks to get past the nausea, but I had headaches every day I was on the drug. It wasn't terrible, but enough to make me...
