So glad you were able to find a doctor who listens. Having a doctor that will at least talk about Fibro makes things so much easier. Sounds like he has started you out with some things that should help. I know we are all different, some things work for some & others don't. If they don't I'm sure he will try different things until he comes up with something that works well to keep you comfortable.
I can't imagine having a small child to care for with the way I feel. It takes me an hour in the morning before I can even walk & even pick up a glass. I applaud you for doing a great job! You will find many caring people here to talk with about anything, so glad you found us.
Good luck and keep us posted on how you are doing and if the medications help.
Never regret something that made you smile!

Hello there Sugar!!
Welcome to the Healing Well Fibro. Forum!! I'm sure you'll learn a lot from this great place and all of these wonderful folks!. We are truly a family here and we all care very much about each other and anyone suffering from this horrible syndrome. Please be sure to check out the 2nd thread called Fibro. 101. There's tons of info on there and hints on how to have a life while suffering from Fibro.
I'm so happy for you... finding a doctor that has a clue is an important first step. Getting proper meds is critical and learning to live with Fibro is really important too. I know when I was getting my dx I was happy to know it wasn't MS, Lupus or cancer.. but I was pretty bummed out to find out I had a problem that would last for the rest of my life. Learning to deal with this and accept it takes some time. (I'm still working on the acceptance thing.. even though I've known I have FMS most of my adult life).
Congrats on the baby!!! I know its hard to pick him up and enjoy him and hopefully when the meds kick in you'll be able to do so with no problems. They're only little and snuggly for such a short time so love every minute of it while you can.
I wanted to welcome you and let you know we're all here for you, through the good and bad, we're always willing to help. Sometimes we get a little crazy here.. but when you live with constant pain and brain fog its better to laugh than cry.
Give that baby a snuggle for me...
