- DX FIBRO
I believe I've had fibromyalgia for about 5 years but it intensified about 2 years ago. I was finally diagosed about a year ago. I've tried Lyrica (which made me gain weight) and Cymbalta (which threw me over the edge emotionally). I've been treated for depression since I went in to a postpartum depression after my second child was born. Fibro doesn't help that at all. The question I have is, when it's unavoidable to overdo and that puts you in a full fledged flare, how is the best way to handle it? So far I've been taking Oxicodone and muddling through each day getting as much done as possible. Would the flare subside faster if I just stayed in bed for a few days?
