It was confirmed on Tuesday by my rheumy that I do have fibro, but she also thinks my back pain is from my bulging discs and not related.  She put me on cymbalta the lowest dosage possible.  so I have taken 2 pills, one tuesday nite and then one last night,  today I feel a little more spacey than usual, if that's possible,  I am definitely more irratable but that could be due from alot of things, pms is probably the most likely one.  and I am a little more "shakey" today with my hands, but not bad.  so was just wondering if the "spacey" feeling was just me or if could be from the cymbalta with just starting on it.  I'm not dizzy or lightheaded, just spacey.
 
now for dear hubby,  if I may please vent a little.  I work 40 hours a week,  so I worked my 8 hours yesterday, plus got a B12 shot during lunch, went to the grocery store after work, and was home at 5:00,  I then made a blueberry coffeecake,  put it in the oven and then made spagetti and sauce for supper,  by 5:45  while the coffeecake was still baking, burning on top and still like cake batter in the middle, I realized I forgot to put salt in it.  It was suppose to be for our bible study.  so at 6:00 I pulled a cake mix out of the cupboard and mix it up, bake it, boil frosting for it and we are out of the door by 6:48 to go to bible study.  at 9:00  when we finally get home and I'm in alot of pain, I relax on the sofa and start to read a book,  my husband asks if I am in alot of pain, and I told him yes,  he suggests that I keep moving!  that should help it and fix everything!  by the way when I don't have anything going on at night I try to get in a walk (1 mile).  He also questioned my prescription of hydrocodine with the cymbalta,  my rheumy had printed out everything for me which helps alot, and so I just shoved the paper in his face and told him to read it himself.    thanks for letting me vent.  and by the way, the cake did turn out and everyone loved the boiled frosting I made  (carmel)

Hi, Getting a confirmed dx is difficult but now you know what you are dealing with and a good
treatment plan can be started. As you know we all tolerate meds differantly. I was initially
put on Cymbalta but it made me dizzy and nauseas. There are many fibromites who tolerate
it well. I'm on Savella. I hope the Cymbalta works for you!

This is a wonderful place to vent. We all have felt the frustration of people not understanding
what we are living with. Coping with fibro you need to give yourself a break sometimes.
The people in our lives need to know we aren't the same physically. It took me awhile to ask
for help or slow down. I didn't want to believe I couldn't do everything and in the process
became angry. I finally accepted there are things I can't do all the time and learned to say no
and ask for help when I needed it. My husband realizes what I'm dealing with now and is
always willing to help out.

Hoping that your meds kick in and give you some relief and that you are able to take time
for yourself when needed. Your cake sounds yummy!

Hi there,

If I did everything you did in a day, I would be collapsed by 9:00 at night, If I made it that far. You do a lot. I know it is hard when your husband doesn't understand. I don't blame you for telling him to read that paper himself. I hope that he understands in the future though and doesn't tell you to move around when you have been doing that all day long.

I am lucky, my husband does understand and sometimes does too much for me. I appreciate it, but if I don't do for myself, I wont be able to do anything. So I am stubborn sometimes and do things when he isn't looking. lol...

Hugs, Karen

I empathize! My son is the same way, he says, "What are you going to be like when you're 70 if you already can't do ____" (fill in the blank.) I believe he is trying to help, but he doesn't seem to realize that I am very aware of this prospect, have been for years, and I really am doing all that I can. It's hard. My husband used to be more like that, but after 20 years, he's getting better. It still irks me when I have to ask one of them to bring a pan out of the fridge and put it on the stove or something, but such is life.

I hope your spaciness goes away and that the Cymbalta helps you.

WOW...I don't think I could keep up with you.  I would be so wiped out.  I have been on cymbalta for over a month now, and luckily it is a med that I can take and has helped.  But everyone is different with meds.  It was trial and error for me when they diagnosed my anxiety and then the fibro.  Amtripiline works for some but not me.  Take your time.  And the folks here are so wonderful and full of wonderful advice.  They have really helped me with dealing with my fibro. 
 
Sending a gentle and warm hug your way.

My husband told me that taking care of me is a burden on him.

They just do not understand.

I have been taking cymbalta for about 6 months, at first i had a wierd feeling thats hard to explain but after a week things were fine. It has helped me quite a bit along with my other meds. Give it a little time and see if the problem goes away, if not talk to your doctor about it. I agree with the others about how much you do, I had to quit work and can only do about 3 hours a day and im done or i will be in severe pain for days. You need to learn how to pace yourself to help with pain and dont let anyone make you feel guilty about taking care of yourself. I didnt understand how bad fibro could really be until it hit me, so you have to give others time to understand. It did help my husband to understand by reading information about it. And after watching you go through the pain for a while he will start to get it.

I am so sorry you have this illness, but so glad you found us. Remember we know what your going through and you can always come here for comfort.

Thanks everyone, and I doubt hubby will ever really understand. I had him give me a neck/upper shoulder massage for less than 5 minutes last night and he was complaining about his hands hurting, and that I wouldn't want to trade places with him. hmmm, hands vs whole body. WhiteChocChip- I'm sorry your hubby feels that way, or says that to you. I think we all worry that will happen with us and our spouses, hang there, you are not alone.

Big soft hugs,
Diane

Hi Diane...I had to take a little nap just reading what you do in a day...I commend you!  My husband understands the pain and fatigue but I don't think he will ever 'get' the fog.  Of course, I have lost countless gas caps, key fobs...I have left the debit card in the machine so many times the bank now calls me when the machine chews it up.  Last week I left the car running in the garage.  I don't take my purse in any store because I will leave it in the cart and drive off.  I have even taken my dog for a ride, and left him in the van after coming home.  I understand his frustration, especially because every gas cap costs $21 and the bank charges five dollars for cards left in the machine. 
 
A few days ago, we visited some friends and there was a basket of what I thought were those Easter Bunny, marshmellow Peeps on her table.  I picked one up and chomped into it...they were styrofoam bunnies one of her grandchildren made in school.  I thought the hubby was gonna have a stroke.  I guess that's more than The Fog...just lack of concentration or eyesight...LOL!
 
In any event, it sounds like you keep on, keep on, and that's all we can do.  I personally think you are remarkable!

Diane, I don't believe I have welcomed you so welcome, if I have it's the fog writing. I'm with Donna on the nap after reading what you did in one day. If I could do all that in a day, once a week, I would be the happiest woman around. I think your DH must have misunderstood about us having to keep moving to keep the pain down. Yes, we can't just sit around or lay around when we are hurting or it makes it worse but geez, we are not robots and we need plenty of rest.
 
I'm sure I'm a lot older than you but our oldest son has been visiting from NC this week, without his wife for the first time in a long time so I have cherished every minute I have had him to myself but today I am exhausted. I had to take him back to my granddaughter's this morning, he didn't rent a car, and I didn't know if I was going to make the 45 min trip back home I am such a zombie. We really didn't do anything physical, although we had great grandson part of the day yesterday to enjoy, he just turned one Wed. I was up later at night and the change in routine is all it took to exhaust me so give yourself a big pat on the back, without hurting yourself, cause you deserve it.

Thanks Marlee and everyone else for making me feel so welcomed. I am 49 so no spring chicken either. I know I do too much, and I am finding out that driving (which I don't mind at all) for long distances is more of a challenge. My rheumy is 60 miles away. I don't have to make meals very often, my husband is a police officer and works the night shift, going in about the time I get home from work. And most of the time I let him do the dishes (dishwasher) and of course vacumn, and if he is around he takes out the dog for her little bathroom break. so there are a few nights when I get off of work, i just go home and rest and relax. I don't think I am ready to give up planting my flowers, but the weeding might have to be done by someone else. But I have given up volunteering at adopt a pet with the cats/kittens, although I still go up there on saturdays and take the pictures for them, and yes I hurt, ache, burn, stabbing pain at times, but most of the time it doesn't compare to my back, I guess I've lived with pain for so long and am stubborn enough I just keep going when I can. Last year at this time I couldn't walk a block and certainly wasn't standing up straight. And even though I knew it was going to almost kill me, I went horseback riding on vaction with my grandkids and daughter and daughter in law for 2 hours. Yes, i was in tears by the end, praying that the ride would end, but I wouldn't have missed watching my grandkids ride their horses at age 4 and 7.

Wow Diane,

You still do a lot when you don't do a lot. If that makes any sense. Fog... I love horses, though I couldn't raise one, too much work. But I am glad that you got to ride. And I am sure that seeing the kids ride was wonderful.

I am so happy that you have joined us. And I hope that you are having a wonderful day.

Wow Diane you do do a lot. I could never handle all that unless I am having a superwoman day ( thats what I call it) Once in a blue moon. It's enough to chase after my grandson. I am so glad I don't have to work. I don't kow how I would. I am taking Cymbalta. I was nauseated for about 1/2 weeks. I started on 30 mils then 60 after a week. The nausea goes away that is with most antidepressants. It has helped with the pain a lot though. The difference is I get most of my pain at night now instead of all the time. Sometimes so bad I can't sleep and sometimes it comes an goes. I am sticken with Cymbalta untill it stops workin. I'm so sorry about your husband. Mine is a gem. he is a disabled vet who has a lot of his own problems so we take care of eachother. He is very understanding. I hope things get better for you. Prayin for you.

I have an easy life compared to so many on here and believe me I am so THANKFUL for my life. For one thing I didn't start having symptoms of fibro that altered my life til I was in my late 40s, almost 60 now. I have a great husband that has become so in tune with my needs but it was slow coming and he had to get over the fact that he couldn't fix me and fibro was here to stay whether we liked it not before he could accept our life as it has become so don't give up on your DH Diane. I live with this everyday and it is hard for me to understand how our bodies can be so weird so I don't expect normals to get it.
 
I won't be going horse back riding for my kids and grandkids, that would probably land me in the hos with an epidural to numb my whole body. smilewinkgrin But the past year of great grandson's life has flown by and I'm not going to not hold him as long as he is small cause I know what is going to happen to him in this next year and I won't be able to catch him by his second birthday. turn But, I should have been smarter about it and held him on my lap instead of trying to act normal and picked him up off the floor and held him standing up. A lot of times it's not what we do it's how we do it that gets us in trouble.

I agree with others (although I have forgotten who they were now)  who said they were exhausted after reading what you did all day.   It must be hard for others to understand when we cannot understand ourselves, sometimes.  There are days when the thought of walking to the bathroom makes me want to cry and days when I can walk 10 to 15 minutes.  There was even one day when I walked through most of Ikea without my cane!  I was totally shocked I could do it. 
 
The other day I scratched my leg then said "ouch ouch ouch, that hurts!!!"  Hubby asked, "what's wrong??!!"  I told him I was having a flare and I just scratched an itch and it hurt like the dickens!
 
Oh and that hand comment reminded me or something someone did (it just made me think.)  A person said, "I have a headache.  Dang!  I wonder why I have a headache.  This sucks!"   I did sympathize with him.  However, I thought to myself, "wouldn't it be wonderful to to be surprised so much by a headache and wonder why you have one?"  Usually it is the other way around, "wow, I do not hurt a lot today.  This is odd and so totally cool!  I wonder why I am not hurting?"
 
It is so tough when others do not understand.  It is great that we have one another here.  So welcome and I am glad you joined the group because we need the support of others who actually do understand!

Hi Council lady and welcome.  I do not work an 8 hour a day job per se but we are self employeed (plumbing business, landscaping business and a start up company) I was doing the books for the first 2 companies and juggeling money like crazy and going crazy but he has taken over the books and insists that he tell me everything he is doing bla, bla, bla LOL.  I also have a kennel (raise and train German Shepherd Dogs, have 6 now) 2 horses and a pony, a koi pond, flower beds and a huge veggie garden.  I just hope he helps with the garden this year.  It is at least an acre and 300 feet of hose filled with water is very heavy LOL.
 
He tells me that I need to move more, exercise more and the bed buddy is probably harmful as in not good for me.  He is wonderful really but, there is always a but in there.  He is a workaholic.  Naps are a major nono.  Forgetfulness is from taking meds.  He has never had a headache so he does not have a clue about that.  enough of my ranting in the middle of your rant LOL

Wow GSDgirl,  you make ME tired!  I know how much work there is with the dogs, horses, etc....   and the garden too,  not just watering and weeding, but bringing it in and fixing it.  I still assist the local dog trainer with classes, both basic and advanced obedience training, so I get to play with a rottie alot.  I also have a shiba inu that has gone thru the classes - she was and still is very very shy.  she was almost comatose when we first started with her as a puppy at less than 6 months.  but she passed her canine good citizenship test.  and yep, your husband sounds alot like mine, they just don't get it.  mine also thought that one of the guys he works with should have walked 2 miles into town in a blizzard to work because he would have.  good thing I am just as stubborn, and when I absolutely can't do something, I don't.  although a couple years ago I was on a trip to Colombia South America with compassion,  and on the last day there in the morning while we were walking past a drug lord's house, I stepped on a stone and rolled my ankle,  of course I kept walking on it all that day to go site seeing and then running on it the next day with airplanes, etc...  a month later I finally went to the doctor and he said I tore 2 ligaments in it,  ooops,  and yes that is one of the spots that aways hurts on me.  It helps when people at bible study take a look at me and know how much pain I'm in and comment on it,  then of course hubby is a little more understanding.  Have a good weekend everyone.

I just joined this forum and I read this thread first. I must add in that I have felt this pain of the "others" not coping well w/us having FMS. Its terrifying to know that people become ignorant to the fact that people do get sick. It does happen on a daily basis and that we have no control over this happening , but we do & can take control of our lives.
Be proactive and be positive and try to remain the same.
 
Just take it day to day w/him ( your husband) he will learn to accept in time. Even if he feels as if you do not need the pain meds , he will soon learn its part of the process. I myself take them but my primary believes they hinder more than help--where as my last primary I switched from believed if you need it take it & moderate it and just learn to be simple and sensible about it . I dont want to be come dependant. I just want to be comfortable and sane!
 
Keep us posted.
GOD BLESSyeah
 
I take : 2x day -cymbalta 50mg ea, 2x day -ultram 50mg ea, vicodin when needed 550/5 mg ea.
 I also take trazadone at night IF needed. Sparingly!

Hi Cpdwife and welcome. I agree that accepting fibro comes with time for our mates. My DH lived with a workaholic perfectionist for many, many years so he knows what I was like before fibro and what I have become since. He knows without asking what kind of day I am having by what I am doing if I'm up and working I'm having a good day if I haven't gotten much done I'm having a bad day. We really don't even have to talk about fibro anymore. The other night I was hurting so bad I was up and down trying to find some position to get comfy and he came over behind me and started rubbing my back and shoulders without saying a word cause he knows where my worst pain is. Yes, I thanked him from the bottom of my heart for doing that cause it does feel good at the time and I know he gets tired and he hurts too at his age. I guess it is a matter of taking care of each other at this stage of our lives.
 
Don't give up girls all good things come with time. I know you want them to be understanding and compassionate now.
 
luv and hugs

Council Lady.....I train in the sport of Schutzhund, the German way of training.  With the American bred Gsd's I have seen my share of fearful dogs.  The dogs I have now are German bred.  I have gotten as far as a BH, it is the first title, all obedience and harder than the CD.  I was then diagnosed with Hepatitus C, treated it for 6 months and cleared the live virus but the "cure" (interferon & ribavirion), darn near killed me.  I honestly think the drugs I had to take killed my immune system and pushed my fibro to progress faster. cry
 
My pup is of my breeding, something that I have planned for 3 years.  I will get him titled if it kills me tongue

Denise, I told Karen this morning in an e-mail that I was determined to get my year old shih tzu to where I can take her off the leash and she will stay with me. I should have started this last summer when she was tiny but last summer was not good for me in any way and I was lucky to get them out to walk. We have about five acres of open field behind us so she has plenty of room to learn. Our bichon we lost going on two years ago was never on a leash unless we went for a walk. Our bichon we have now I wouldn't even attempt to let off the leash, I'm not having much success teaching her anything she is so heard headed.
 
It's funny we all have dogs that we are so devoted to in spite of what we go through with our health. My boys and most of my grandchildren don't really need me that much anymore but my two girls do and I need them.
