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. I know my bestie has bad days and we never compare who has more, but I do know that somehow she pushes through while I have gone to less than… read more

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?

Interstitial Cystitis

Interstitial Cystitis

I was diagnosed with it a couple months ago. I cut out most caffeine, carbonated beverages, chocolate and anything with extra vitamin c. I take a antihistamine at least once a day but it doesn't seem to make a difference. My doctor put me on elavil to help with insomnia, IC and IBS. I was wondering if anyone else had a suggestion for something else to try at home?
