    Savella

    I have tried taking Lyrica, Cymbalta and Neurontin. I did not have luck due to side effects with all of these. I started on the Savella starter pack and got to the 50 mg. twice a day which I did for 4 days and was basically non-functional so I had to back off. I am currently taking 25 mg...

    Unexpected Diagnosis

    Hi. I was just diagnosed with Fibromyalgia on Friday by a Rhuematologist. I am 41 years old, married almost 20 years, and have 3 children ages 8-23. I was surprised by this diagnosis to say the least. I had heard of Fibromyalgia but not thought about it in regard to the way I was feeling...

    how many of you use pain meds?

    Hello, I just wondered how many of you are prescribed pain meds (opiods) as part of your "fibro cocktail." I tried all the so-called fibro meds except lyrica. I refuse to take something that puts that much weight on you so quickly. But I've been unable to take savella or Cymbalta. I did try...

    Facial Pain

    About 6 weeks ago I had a very intense stressful week due to my adult daughter. My diastolic (lower number of your blood pressure) became elevated and I developed a pressure in my chest (sternum area). I was checked out and was not having a cardiac event. A beta blocker has helped bring my BP...

    Savella vs Cymbalta

    Has anyone ever tried Savella for their fibro pain? I've been on Cymbalta for a while. Now it just doesn't seem to be helping much. My neuro wants to increase it to help my migraines and to help my sleep (I only sleep about 4 hours a night) but when we have tried that, I get really bad night...

    I'm New..and I need insight!

    I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia a month or so ago. I was put on Savella and Amitriptylene to help manage the pain, which worked for a few weeks, and now I feel worse than before. The pain is lessened, but I am tired all of the time, and cannot make it through a walk longer than a mile without...

    tramadol ?

    Hi - I am currently transitioning meds and have started on Savella. My dr. said to take Tramadol (1-2 a day) to help with pain while my body takes the time to adjust to Savella. I have taken 1 tramadol a day over the last week and I noticed some burning throughout my body similar to the...

    Thanks for allowing me to join! I am a busy CEO of a women owned business

    I feel like I have come girl circle in the last five years with no relief. I have been to GM doctors, chiropractors, rheumatologist, spinal specialist all to no avail. I had a c5/6 spinal fusion in 2011 which shows everything exactly in tact but my body functions seem to be getting weaker daily...
