Thank you so much for replying to me. I felt a little silly when I re-read my post. I'm having a hard time with my NEW life and all that goes along with it. I have had migraines for many years. The IBS came on about 5 years ago, but within the last year I have had panic attacks, severe migraines and all over pain (the fibromyalgia). NOW my IBS is out of control. I'm in denial that I need to completely alter my life. After quiting my job a couple of months ago I have been down in the dumps. I know I need to change my eating and start working out... it's hard when I'm depressed and also searching for work.
I appreciate the suggestions and have already taken some action. I have an appointment with my PCP to evaluate my meds and an appointment tomorrow with my psych. doctor to help me with my anxiety.
Thank you again so much,Tricia
I love you people!!!
debbikay, I wanted to tell you that I have been on Cymbalta for about six months now. It was given to me for anxiety by my PCP prior to my Fibro dx. I think it's interesting that you brought it up. I like the drug and the little side effects (that I notice anyway). It helped my anxiety at first, a lot. I use to hive and freak out far more then now. I take ativan with tylenol PM to sleep and that has helped a bit for the last couple of weeks. My issue with Cymbalta and I brought up with the Rheumy when she dx'd me with Fibro... is that it's strange that I was diagnosed while already on Cymbalta. As I said I'm going to review my meds with my doctor soon and see if we can't control more of my issues. Good luck to you with your job search! I use to be so confident. I hope that comes back once I'm offered a job. Thank you for your help!
Thank you for the good advice as well I. I'm trying to look at things differently and you are all helping me with that so much.
Have a great day,Tricia
