No implants. Some of symptoms, but not all the time. Flares may have several, but rarely more than nerve tingling in extremities & tightness at times.

Sudden Itchy Patches

Sudden Itchy Patches

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

Fog For Real?

Fog For Real?

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.

She upped my gabopentin from 100 to 200 MG in the am and 300 MG at night. She is also changing my Prozac to cymbalta. Had it for the first time last night and bad cramps along with insomnia

Being On Edge?

Being On Edge?

Does anyone else feel like they are on edge most of the time? I have noticed that not only on my bad pain days anymore that I am very easily irritated and will be snappy when I don't mean to be. I am already taking meds for depression and anxiety, but now I wonder if maybe they should be adjusted or if it is just from the fibro?

Best to see a psychologist, don't adjust meds without a professional opinion, and you may need better help than just a GP.

Do You Think Your Medications Actually Make Your Fibro Worse Over Time?

Do You Think Your Medications Actually Make Your Fibro Worse Over Time?

I have found that on most days, I don't really need my meds to manage the pain, because I have other coping things I can do. It makes the brain fog and fatigue so much worse when I take them. If I take them, I will often hurt MORE after they wear off, than I hurt before I took them. I've been able to go without my meds for a while now, and I have more good days than bad. I also discovered that when I only take the pain meds when I REALLY need them, they work much better.

I have never found that a narcotic pain medication helps at all with my fibro...and most people I personally know with fibro are the same way. The narcotics just make you not seem to care as much… read more

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
