Hey guys and girls..I'm Lawanna I was just recently diagnosed after dealing with new and worsening problems that all pointed to FM for over a year...and so I got tired of dealing with the local clinic and went to the family doctor...I handed him my list of complaints and never meantioned what I thought it was....he read them looked at me and said you have FM...and of course now that I have the official diagnosis...
Now I'm hearing all of the horror stories from people who know someone with it....I had to give up my passion for breeding koi and had to turn over all the up keep on my ponds last year to my hubby...one of the hardest things I've had to do...around the same time I got involved with a local dog/cat rescue and met a wonderful woman who agreed to teach me to groom...but, now I'm so scared of loosing it too..with each story I here....I'm really not understanding the disease and the meds that are being used.....I'm on Lyica after trying Cymbalta without any change...after a week I'm not having to take as many tramadol for the pain but, now I feel drunk and didn't even get to enjoy the party...so I come to you guys confused and scared of my future....
