at first? When did it start to work, if ever?
I haven't either. I see an amazing rheumatologist at Vanderbilt and she really stays on top of my problems and she hasn't mentioned it. Let us know how it goes.
Ive never had it or been offered x
I listed as many as I could @Passingthrough, but could not list them all. I take a lot of meds for anxiety, depression and bowel problems, as well as a low dose of gabapentin and low dose naltrexone for pain. Because I cannot tolerate higher doses the pain meds only help so much. I have been trying a lot of options because I have such a hard time with meds for pain especially, so I am trying alternatives. I have to part pay for them, but it's worth knowing if ithey will help.
I also have a great pain doctor who is really up on the newest treatments and believes in a multifaceted approach to treating FM/ME, as well as educating his patients to help themselves. I thank heavens that I am one of his patients
The Botox is continuing to work just over two weeks in. I was also on amytriptyline for sleep (just 25 mg started a week ago) and I had to stop using it (due to side effects) so I am having more neck and body pain, although it's
Still an improvement especially on my
Lower back and hips. My neck is pretty sore and I have a headache today, a lot like yesterday

We can get therapeutic Botox here, but it is way expensive! I am luckily covered for it and decided to try it as I get trigger shots all the time and was hoping the Botox would last
Longer. It's day 5 or 6 and my back and neck feel better today after a gentle massage yesterday.
