Welcome Adam......wow a 10 month old can be quite a handful especially if your having a flare. Speaking of flare.. I am having one today so I am out of important things to say except howdy!

Hi Adam,
 
Welcome to the HealingWell Fibromyalgia Forum.  I am so glad that you have joined us. 
 
I can imagine that having a ten month old must be wonderful and yet a handful.  You are very fortunate to have such a wonderful gift in life though.
 
I am sorry that you are in so much pain right now.  It is difficult.  But you will find many of us use distraction to get away from it.  That only goes so far though and it comes a time when you need medication or supplements to help.  If you get a chance, check out the thread called fibro101.  It is the first thread on the forum and it has a wealth of information in it.  There is info on a supplement called malic acid/magnesium.  It really does help with the pain of fibro.  You might want to discuss that with your doctor and see if it helps you.  Also we tend to lack vitamin D3.  That seems to help me with the fatigue.  Though I do take meds for that and for pain too.  The fatigue is what overwhelms me the most.  I seem to be able to handle the pain at this stage.  That is with the help of supplements and pain medication. 
 
I am so glad that you have joined us.  You will find this is a wonderful group or members that offer much support.  We do understand.  That is for sure.
 
Do keep posting and let us know how you are doing.  Take care, have a wonderful day.  And most of all, keep moving.  That helps a lot.
 
Hugs, Karen

Hi Adam, welcome to the land of friendly fibromites!

Hope you will be able to find a good med combo. It is great to find something to
take the edge off the pain. I always suggest keep moving, but with a 10 month old
I'm pretty sure you are moving quite a bit.

Hello, Adam,

Love your screen name! I hope you enjoy the forum....it is a wonderful outlet for those of us who need to know that someone "feels our pain." I would say you certainly have your hands full.

I have a 20-year-old daughter who is on Lamictal for epilepsy. Do you have any side effects from it that you're aware of?
