I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia about 2 years ago after over 2 years of going back and forth to doctors. Once I was diagnosed, the doctor started me on Lyrica. It worked great for about 6 months and I managed to gain about 30 lbs. during that time. I'm on Cymbalta now, and it's helping, but I still find myself in a lot of pain most days. I also have Restless Leg Syndrome, spinal stenosis and arthritis in my spine, hips and knees. I'm not giving up though. I push myself every day to get out of bed and go to work. My job is important to me and I love what I do.
I am blessed to have the support of a wonderful husband, that understands that I'm completely wiped out by the weekend and have no energy to do anything. He's retired and takes care of most of the housework for me.
I hope to find some friends on here, and we can help to support each other.

Thank you. Every day is a battle and I choose to fight instead of giving in.
