Hi, I am new to this forum, and new to my diagnosis of having Bipolar Disorder. My Fibromyalgia diagnosis is about ten years old although I think I have probably had both for most of my life, I'm 37 now. The Fibromyalgia has not been in control with meds ever and I'm starting new meds this week for the Bipolar. I realize through my research that the two disorders have similar traits such as ups and downs, etc. and I was wondering if anyone else is experiencing both disorders/conditions and if they have had any luck with certain meds. I'm off work and am really trying to get my stuff together so any help will be appreciated.
