just hurt all over and the stiffness never goes away. i pretty much always hurt , but if i can do something fun like painting i can forget most of the time. but lately i could not enjoy anything in my life, i just ccried and cried it was definately affecting my normal every day life. and the fatigue was so bad i could do nothing. this was my wakeup call to go to a rumatolagist. never went before cause i was too scared what they would find with all the blood tests, but did not have a choice. and i am glad i went. i did not have lupus or ra but he did give me samples of a drug cymbalta used for depression and diabetic leg pain, and so far it is really helping me cope. i did not want to take it because of the side effects but i could not do it alone anymore. water theraphy helps but would not work this time. i had to try something and i am so glad it did. feel so sorry for all of you it is awful and the memory fog is bad too. take care and be good to yourself. love to all.View Thread
