Can A Person Use Cymbalta And Lyrica At The Same Time? As Prescribed By The Doctor.

Can A Person Use Cymbalta And Lyrica At The Same Time? As Prescribed By The Doctor.

I was prescribed Cymbalta over 4 years ago and managed to wean myself off it. I moved over to Full Extract Canabis oil which worked really well for quite a while. However over the Christmas period I started experiencing debilitating muscle pain in my right shoulder and down my back ... my GP has now put me back on cymbalta as well as Lyrica
Ive been on them for a week now and am feeling awful - almost drunk and disoriented as well as sleepy.

Do I continue for a few more weeks
Isnt this… read more

Motion Sickness

Motion Sickness

Is motion sickness common amongst some of you? It’s like every time I’m in a moving car, I feel really sick. i.e., headache, nausea.

Or even if I’m staring at my phone for too long, the light bothers me.

I can have it though fairly rare and out of the blue.

Beside Having Fibromyalgia I Suffered From Severe Chronic Migraine! I Have Had Them Since I Was A Child’s As I Age They Continue Worsen.

Beside Having Fibromyalgia I Suffered From Severe Chronic Migraine! I Have Had Them Since I Was A Child’s As I Age They Continue Worsen.

When I have a Migraine I get these “SORES” that are itchy and burn like 🔥 fire 🔥! They appear in and around my EARS, around my HAIRLINE at the back of my neck, and in my scalp! Now I blame my Migraine but IDK what actually cases them, my GP didn’t really know either! It just makes so very uncomfortable and I know I should scratch but it is extremely hard...as they just burn and bleed🔥! Only thing my GP gave me was something to temporally numb them. (He retired I now have no doctor at all) So… read more

Clicky Hips

Clicky Hips

I've noticed my hips and lower back keep clicking, a deep hard click that hurts when it happens and throbs after.. Is this something I need to worry about or does this happen to others 💜

A MyFibroTeam Member said:

It has happened to me and I also get what I call kinks in my hip ...very painful. It may be due to the fibers snapping and popping(harmless) or like your knuckles crack

Hip Pain...ugh

Just when I thought I was managing crazy symptoms Now comes sudden Hip Pain! Was waking me up at night when I was sleeping on my side. Thought it was maybe sciatica...long story short x-ray says moderate arthritis plus there's something they can't see on left trochanter near femor! So probably have to have CT or MRI 😵. AND the hits keep coming my PCP retired! There's tailbone stuff too on x-ray. Please has anyone else had this?? I'm in almost Constant pain!! Thanks for listening fibromates💖L

Anyone Else Having This Problem?

Anyone Else Having This Problem?

I have dealt with fibro for over 30 years. I am 79 and in reasonable health for my age. I had my first two covid shots with no problem. Last Sunday I had my booster shot and it has flared my fibro. The pain of fibro has shot up to about a 9. I have done some research and this has also affected other people with fibro. There was a site where a doctor addressed this problem. The main question seemed to be how long will this flare last? His answer was they just do not know as there have… read more

Sciatic Pain After COVID Booster

Sciatic Pain After COVID Booster

Has anyone else experienced weird side effects from the COVID vaccine? It didn't happen after my first or second dose, but I got my booster 2 days ago and this morning I woke up with sciatic pain so bad I couldn't move my leg without screaming (I'd say it was probably an 8 when I tried to move it, my mom wanted me to go to the ER but I knew there probably wasn't anything they could do for me there and it would waste everyone's time). It was also on the same side of my body as the vaccine (as… read more

Nausea

Nausea

Has anyone developed a sensitive stomach? Like feeling nauseous after eating and nothing appeals to you anymore? I am trying to narrow it down to see if I need to see someone or not. The only thing that seems to settle it is honey vanilla chamomile tea or a ginger peach tea I found in a wawa store.

A MyFibroTeam Member said:

Definitely. I used to only experience nausea with motion sickness or illness. Since fibro set in random nausea seems my new normal.
