Have not posted in a while, just been lurking scool .
I have gone through a struggle the last few months. Personal Leave from Work, and Short Term Disability.
My Pain Management Doc has been a friend indeed. I presented my case a month ago for needing something different to see if I could return to work. He is Loath to prescribe narcotics and I am loath to take them. He upped the strength of Lyrica and added Savella. After three days of chills and sweats, vomiting, insomnia and a manic mood - I am more pain free than I have been in over three years :-) .
I am feeling well enough now to return to work full time. I will still be walking with a cane, but I can use that to "bonk" the production crew when they need it devil .
Thanks to you all for being a suport even when I just popped in to read posts. And of couse keeping up with our As the Fibro Burns soap opera is  must!
God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and love and of a sound mind.

That is great news, bootknife! I remember when you first came here and you were in a lot of pain. Glad you are feeling better!
