My reumatologist has offered me these possible medications for my FM/CFS. Has anyone had experience with any of these? Troubling side effects? Did it help? For how long?
I was on Gabapentin its the old name talk to your doctor re pregablin which is the new form.
Re Pain its 50/50 and you wont know until you try it. For me it removed the neuropathy or that ichy sractch sensation.
My Rhem Dr warned me of the side affects and there are a few. Some discrbe it a being a zombie and yes thats a fair describtion. Dr put like this rather that than in pain. Drugs won.
However on the Gabapentin my Cardo Dr pulled off them as it can as in me cause heart issue and in my case cardiomyopaty it caused a rapid onset of thicking of my heart walls.
That when moving to the new version stop this issue still sorted my neuropathy . I still strong pain killers as this does not stop all Fibro pain.
Hope this help
Thanks! How well do they work for pain, fatigue, balance or dizziness?
