Dear Linda, I was put on Savella for my Fibromyalgia. I started taking it on Weds., and by Thurs. I noticed the same type angry behavior. I went off it immediately. I was very surprised at how quickly this side effect started. And, it was just a horrible feeling to be so angry. Hope this helps! BarbView Thread
Dear Linda, I was put on a trial of Savella. And, yes, I noticed I became Very Angry. Knowing my body, I knew I was reacting to the medication!! So, you are not alone. I've learned to listen to my body. It is usually right on with what's going on with me at the time!! BarbView Thread
Dear Dr. Pellegrino, I've seen and heard of people having Fibro Flare-ups. It seems that these people are reporting that they actually have times when they are not having symptoms. With my Fibro, I am in some kind of pain 24 hrs. a day, with pain being the major symptom I experience. I have days that are better than others, but I am never without pain. Of course, with the constant pain comes other problems that are Fibro related. Is this constant pain unusual as far Fibro patients are concerned? Thx for your good info and input. BarbView Thread
I read with interest about FMS Flare ups. I have pain constantly. I don't know what life is like without pain. I have never, since the start of my Fibro 25 years ago, been without the pain. I'm wondering if that is unusual? Or, do most Fibro patients actually have times that they are not in pain?View Thread
Hi Kimber, I am from MI but have strong ties to Western Pennsylvania. My Mother was born in Pittsburgh, and her family had a grocery store in Springdale. McKeesport is also a place where my Aunts and Cousin lived. I'm in SE MI, about 35 miles NW of Detroit.View Thread
