Is It My Mindset?

Is It My Mindset?

I know that each of our journeys is different; not just for the fact that some have other ailments, but that fibromyalgia presents, seemingly, significantly different. I still, however, find myself asking how can they still do that. Some of my lovely fibro friends including my bestie who also suffers with lupus, continue to work full-time schedules.

Elavil

Elavil

My Fibro doctor prescribe Elavil to help me sleep, It caused me nightmares so bad that I still remember a couple of them to this day. Prior to taking Elavil, I was NOT having nightmares.

A large number of people I talked to with Fibromyalgia said Elavil gave them nightmares also. Nightmares mean that you're definitely not getting a good night's sleep.

Q: Why do so many Doctors continue to prescribe Elavil for people with Fibro, when we have such a harmful reaction to this medication?
