Hi Sheryl. I am sorry you feel so down. I also believe some of the medication could cause weight gain. In the past, I could hardly eat anything, but I also didn't lose weight. I used to get so upset over the fact that I couldn't eat anything without getting sick, and I didn't even get the benefit of being skinny! I tried an anti-yeast diet for several months, and actually started to lose weight again.
There may be some connection between yeast over load and fibromyalgia. Many of my fibro symptoms have gone away or diminished since I did the yeast-free diet. The diet is sort of hard to follow at first, but you get used to it after a while. I followed the yeast-free diet strict for 4 months. Now I just am conscious of what I eat, but I do allow yeast in my diet. If I start to have a flare-up, then I try to eat yeast free for a few days or a week or so and it seems to help.
