Hi all, I am 43 years old and I have been having symptoms for a few years but in the past year it has all gotten worse. I suspected fibromyalgia because my mother has it and I kind of recognized the symptoms. I was diagnosed with depression about 8 years ago but I believe I had the fibro then as well. About a year ago I got off of the anti depressant because I thought I was doing well enough. I have done good with the depression but that is about the same time I started having the pain most days. The last few weeks has been pretty bad. I am in and out of bed all day most days. I went to my doctor Thursday and told him my symptoms and he started me on a low dose of cymbalta. I have been in bed almost solid since I started it Thursday night, not sure if the medicine is making me feel more drained or just a coincidence. I hope to find encouragement and support here.
