I don't know where you are located, but the community mental health agency in my city is extremely understanding and knowledgeable about fibro and me/cfs (my primary diagnosis). If there is a… read more
Hi...I am trying to decide if fibro fog is real or medication side effect. The drs upped my meds and I can barely move or think. I was somewhat out of it before but now I feel so bad I'm not sure if I can drive home today.
I will suddenly get what feels like a shooting patch of itchhiness. As in a quick bout of itchy skin which comes and goes and is often at just one area. It is not like regular itching from dry skin for example. It may be related to nerve issues. Does anyone else get this? Thanks

My insurance just quite paying for a muscle relaxant. I don't take a high amount, so the cost isn't prohibitive. BUT I want to consider options. Any suggestions on muscle relaxants that are effective. I also want to review using Lyrica and Cymbalta simultaneously. Any one taking both. What is the positive effect?

Good Morning DrT, I think I mentioned that I couldn’t take Lyrica and Cymbalta. I had a bad reaction to both. My PC put me on Pamelor, it’s a antidepressant that also works with… read more
