I have always been very sensitive to meds, supplements and many foods.
One thing that helps is smaller a small dose rather than the normal dose, almost homeopathic. I seem to well with white pills LOL some people seem to think me crazy, but less dye. We use to have a compounding pharmacy across town as I have limited my meds drastically as well as supplements that cause trouble, I will be checking on that today.
I use to take cyclobenzaprine at night and started having problems. I realized from the 10mil to the 5mil and DH RX for same thing they were all different colors. The pharmacy did tell me same med different fillers?! I will look into that, thanksView Thread
Here in the NW tons of rain all night but right now it is dry with a little sun peaking through. Won't last but good for now! Weather has sure been crazy..
Just coming off a flare a fatigue. My friends could even hear it in my voice on the phone. Not sure why but sleep was a big issue. I have been taking gabapentin at night and that is helping........plus just staying in and resting taking time to focus on me for a few days.View Thread
That sounds somewhat familiar to me. Back in the early 90's my Dr. sent me to a Rheumatologist for official DX. He did spend more time with me, but in the end said if the meds do not work don't bother. Checked my blood work for RA and some other things and told me I had fibro and he does not treat it.
Where I live I have never found a Rheumy who will treat fibro. So it is my Chiropractor, PCP and Physc. As far as meds go less is best for me as I to am sensitive.......small dose of any med causes less side effects. I also need to shake things up and use different ones for a while to keep them working.
Hang in there the frustration of chronic pain and little help will increase the anxiety.
Remember when you see a Dr. you are hiring them not the other way around.
So happy for you! Haven't signed in for awhile but have been keeping up with you all..
My situation is long but I have two grandchildren I rarely see and it is the fault lies with my own daughter whose mental illness has caused much pain. They live with their Father and grandmother......the kids are older now and it hurts them to see me as their mother will not get help. Too long too painful to go into!
I am glad for the other three I have and who I see regularly.
That is why looking at these happy pictures touches my heart. I am so glad you woke up with a happy heart.
Hi, I can't take the cyclobenzaprine any more but still use the biotene. When I was using the cyclo I kept it out on the counter and if I woke up in the middle of the night I swished again. It really helps.
Cyclo eventually dried my eyes out so bad they wanted me on RX drops...then it caused other issues. I miss it though as sleep was much better when taking it.
