Is It My Mindset?
A MyFibroTeam Member asked a question 💭

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

I get my Norco from my GP also. I try to be very careful with how much I take so I don't end up addicted.

Aurorix
A MyFibroTeam Member asked a question 💭

is A urorix the same as Elavil?

A MyFibroTeam Member

Never heard of that…I don’t think it is the same.

Elavil
A MyFibroTeam Member asked a question 💭

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?

A MyFibroTeam Member

I tried that I lay awake waiting for results it never comes

Hi. On November 5th we are having a luncheon at the Hotel Pier 5 in Baltimore Md from 11:30-2:30. It is a totally family friendly event. Full sit down lunch $22/adult $7/child. We also have a block of rooms for $189/night. It's just a relaxed fun time, where we can meet new people and be around people who "get it"

I live so far away to go to this event. If I had the money to take a plane and pay accommodations I'd go just to meet others like myself with Fibromyalgia. Have fun.

Cymbalta Plus Lyrica?
A MyFibroTeam Member asked a question 💭

Does anyone have any advice on taking 80 mgs. of Cymbalta, over 60? I swear I feel a difference with taking 80 mgs., versus 60 mgs.

A MyFibroTeam Member

Lyrica I got a bad rash from that, never was on Cymbalta. I wish you luck with both. 🥰
