Thanks for all of your replies. Sorry I didn't get back to you until now, but I took a flexerile this morning because I was having a lot of real bad pain in my lower back and it knocked me out. I ended up sleeping until 5pm!
Keeper, I am definately considering doing something different with my diet. I'm currently in the process of waiting for some food allergy rast tests to come back, but so far no food allergies have been noted. I think I'll try to go off of dairy first as my friend with fibermyalgia has done that and has really seen the benefits of it. I tried for a short time and then returned to milk. It's hard not to drink milk myself when I'm encouraging the children to drink milk for their bone health. I will just have to try agian and this time explain to the children somehow why I"m not having milk. I was tested for Celiac disease and was not shown to have it nor did I show any sensitivities to wheat on a RAST blood test, so I hesistate to give wheat up...I love it so!
Currently, I'm on 500mg Amoxicillin 3x a day for 10 days to deal with Sinus congestion. The antibiotic is definately messing with me! I'm supplementing with acidophilus.
I've tried fish oil and really haven't seen a benefit.
I really haven't seen a clear connection to what I've eaten and my symptoms. There have definately been a few times when I was sure that what I ate caused me pain, but then at a later time I've gotten brave and had the offending food agian with no adverse effects.
So, I will return to work on Tuesday and be thankful for a distraction to the pain. I really don't want to try any other medicine options other than the Pentasa. I think I should save the big stuff for times when I'm running a fever and vomiting. Luckily, I haven't had to use Prednisone yet.
Thanks everyone for your replies.
