Great to have a place like this for support. I am currently taking Cymbalta 30 mg in the morning and gabapentin 300 mg at bedtime and this works pretty good, but fatigue is sometimes overwhelming, not sure if it is the medication or the fibro that causes me to fight sometimes to stay awake.

Hello-I am new as well. I am happy to be a member of a forum where I will feel really understood. I live in NYC and I am looking to find a doctor who has "up to the minute" treatments. For example, I would like to find someone who treats thyroid, hormone deficiencies , etc, etc. I can't seem to find a practitioner who treats the whole person and doesn't just hand over meds. I would like to find someone who can help me get a handle on what makes my symptoms worse (gluten, sugar, all the good stuff!) . I don't know whether this is the right place but anyone have any suggestions?

thanks and I am so happy to be here.

Thanks so much for your reply 1sweed. I will look over other forums to see if I can find answers to my questions. And wow, being able to vent; that is priceless!
