Is this a British drug?

A MyFibroTeam Member

Nope we have it here in the US. Looked it up and it is used to treat Depression although here it is probably not used as much because it is a MAO Inhibitor and I know there are lots of issues… read more

Brain Fog In Fibro Same Mechanism As In Covid?
A MyFibroTeam Member asked a question 💭

I've been Intensely interested in the cognitive aspects of fibromyalgia.

The 1st problems I exhibited with fibromyalgia in my twenties were cognitive. Out of nowhere I went from having a didactic memory to having problems with concentration and memory and making decisions, as if I couldn't juggle complex information in the same way as before.

It has been wonderful to have a label for this cognitive condition and to be on this site where so many of us suffer from this because it helps me to… read more

Treatments For Fibro In UK?
A MyFibroTeam Member asked a question 💭

I have been taking 150mg serteraline and 20mg of amitriptyline for a while now and the only change I have seen is that I sleep slightly better than before. These pills are obviously not pain meds as I try to avoid them at all costs but its a real struggle when you can't move for days at a time
Can anyone being treated for fibromyalgia in the UK tell me what has helped them for the pain etc. I need to research before going to the doctor as they are not very clued up about fibro
P.s. I have… read more

A MyFibroTeam Member asked a question 💭

May not be fibro related but I saw my rheumatologist last Wednesday who started me on this medication and I just wondered if anyone else is on it?

Apparently it is an antimalarial drug but is given to people with autoimmune conditions as she feels I may have an autoimmune condition as well. It can take up to 4 months to work but since taking it my pain has increased throughout the day and was wondering if anyone had experience of this medication. She said it wasn't a pain killer so to continue… read more

Sleep Study Reassurance? Treatment Options?
A MyFibroTeam Member asked a question 💭

I'm being sent for one, new doc while my regular one - who wasn't helping anymore just pat on the head try mindfulness, prescribes whatever I asked for and get out of my office - he believes that the reason my antidepressants aren't working well enough and possibly other symptoms, could be related to sleep problems. I guess to sleep apnea.

I'm nervous about the study. I'm told it's easy and painless, so it isn't that. I am positive they are going to give me heck about the dogs sleeping with me… read more

Has Anyone Gone On To Be Diagnosed With Parkinson Disease? Pls Share Your Story?
A MyFibroTeam Member asked a question 💭

I’ve had a bad day. Had a couple of small seizures today where the top half of my body continually shakes back and forth
I can’t control it, can’t stop it but I’ve had what I call “matrix” head where my head feels like everything moves like neo dodging machine gun fire. Left had is flickering all over the place and my head jerks side to side or back and forth or my upper torso jerks backwards. I get all emotional as I can’t control it. Makes me feel nauseous and completely exhausts me along… read more
