There are some medications that can make pain worse. I can't take any of the arthritis natural therapies as they make the pain really bad, other natural supplements can react with pharmaceutical drugs. Talk to your pharmacist about all that you are taking, they know far more than the doctors about drug interactions

@mereamouse:Right on about that. I am a retired nurse and talking to your pharmacist is smart They are on the ball about meds Also ask about other drugs that are in the same family and less expensive You will be ready to ask your MD about the pharmacist suggestions

Nancy, I suggest you see a psychiatrist. He/she can diagnose Bi-polar, anxiety, depression, etc. He may also refer you to a therapist. He will also take over all your meds so he can be certain there is no interaction. Mine literally saved my life. Good luck.

Hi found your question after I posted my question! it seems to answer yours?

After spending the past 10-15 years existing rather than living, fatigued, permanent flu-like all over body pain, sadness, eating sugary foods, weight gain, permanent cystitis, constipation, 2 walking sticks, on 13 medications, plus supplements:
I could sense my body shutting down as was unable to move & saw this stretched out endlessly for the rest of my life.
With the guidance of my GP and paying for private Skype consults with The Priory, (Cheap for the results);
I'm down to 4 medications, no walking sticks, happier, lost 50lbs & living a decent life.
I have medical reports stating Fibromyalgia- in remission. PTSD- in remission.
It is still making me nervous not having the medication.
Done properly, the withdrawals were minimal and I felt my body sing(&zing!) as the toxic chemical build up, left my body. My brain is still balancing out pain receptors. The insomnia was a waking nightmare & kept tempting me to stop changing. With no brain fog, I was able to ride this out with help.
Calming and regulating my Central Nervous System was the key. Not piling pharmaceuticals into my Central Nervous System.
The whole process took 6 months. I am happy to expand on how I achieved this, step by step.
"My Fibro" changed my existence into living. a miracle folks! Altho' I'm certainly not perfect nor walk on water xx
If nothing changes; nothing changes xx
