The one pill I didn't want to take because I've seen what it does to a person actually helps me. I have nerve pain that causes my not being able to walk some days. Also today the doctor finally said I have arthritis but I don't quite know which one, still have to see a rheumatologist for that. I'm on a strange cocktail that kinds of worries me.
Topamax~~for migraines Neurontin~~for nerve pain in my hip Flexeril~~for my muscle spasms Phenergen~~for the nausea of my migraines and the neurontin Lisinopril~~blood pressure Diclofenac~~inflammation ( it mostly causes me to sweat like i'm in a sauna)
So at least I'm closer to knowing what's the next directions with my life.View Thread
I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia just over 2 months ago. But looking back I've had it for what seems like all my life. Does anyone else dread getting a cold? I understand that with fibro i'll get a sore throat every once in a while. Yet when i get a cold it takes me took long to get over it and i always inevitably end up with bronchitis. I've always been the person to get sick if i'm around someone that's sick no matter how much disinfectant and hand washing occurs. Is this my fibro or something else that I'm going to have to get used to having and be like why couldn't they have caught this earlier?View Thread
Thanks for those that posted. I went in to the doctor and it was as I suspected bronchitis. I'm still trying to figure out why I'm so susceptible to get that. I'll get searching till I get some answers.View Thread
Thanks for the responses. @Booch007 I believe you in the spiritual department. I've been researching and I'm going to ask my doctors certain questions. I have a brother that has sarcoidosis, a cousin with lupus, and a myriad of other things going on in my family. So I'm at the point that I'm going with the flow and trying to keep doing what i need to do. I'm starting to get a since of deja vu with my week upper respiratory system.View Thread
I'm having to go to a rheumatologist. The reason I'm nervous is because this is the same doctor that treats a family member that has lupus. She understands how I'm feeling, we're both in our early 30s and are finding out we're sick..View Thread
I understand that about seeing a professional. My professors taught me that I can not heal myself. Something my family doesn't understand. I was once on buspirone when a doctor diagnosed my pains as just stress.View Thread
