I ought to have mentioned these things in my first post, but it's no biggie.

I also have Fibromyalgia and Restless Legs Syndrome. My psych diagnoses are Agoraphobia, GAD, Panic Disorder, Depression & OCD. I'm sure I've forgotten to add something else, so if I remember it, I'll give an update lol.

Have tried many many many many meds. I assume that everyone else has had to take a long while to find the correct/a stable combo of meds, as well?

Absolutely. Especially when we have multiple conditions, but sometimes even with one diagnosis it can be trial and error. You ought to be really proud that you're going to college considering all you're managing!

Now try to rest and send that pig back to the farm!!

Sorry for all you're going through. With all those issues, I wonder whether you have ever had your thyroid tested. I had a whole bunch of problems before I started on Synthroid. First I got a bunch of diagnoses, then they started telling me it was all in my head so I stopped telling anyone. Eventually, things got bad enough that my dermatologist ran the thyroid tests (1/3 of my hair fell out over the course of 8 weeks). Turned out I had hypothyroidism. Now my weight is stabilized (though I'd really like to gain weight -- doc says current weight isn't especially healthy). I feel 90% happier. My joint pain has improved. I'm sleeping better. Stomach pains are gone. And about a gazillion other things have improved (bp up, temp up, etc., etc.). Just a thought. Anyways, hope you're getting over the flu & starting to feel better.
