So I have done a poor job of keeping up with what works what doesn't or didn't and what I had horrible side effects from or couldn't afford. So anyone have success with either or Lyrica or Savella?! I recently tried Cymbalta which causes my heart rate to increase, I already have AFib.. so I'm open for suggestions 🤔😜
I've never tried Savella, but I have used both Lyrica and Cymbalta. I was unable to tolerate side effects and the meds weren't really helpful for pain. What helps me is 1) following a diabetic type of diet (I don't have diabetes, but the stability of this type of diet does seem to help with pain, fatigue, and brain fog); 2) I live alone with my support dog. This eliminates the stressor of having to constantly interact with another person; 3) I have friends and hobbies, and the down-time I need to stay healthy. I walk about 3 miles daily, rest when I'm tired, and always hydrate adequately; and 4) I have been clean and sober for nearly 31 years, and that, too, is helpful.
I'm not recommending any of these things, of course, because everyone's situation is different. Only sharing what works for me.
Blessings to you, and I wish you well! 🙏
