I went to my pcp today. Had very bad day yesterday with vertigo, which I hardly ever get, along with profound fatigue/malaise, and decided it was time to check in w/ a doc. He ran my tracer labs and a urinalysis to check for AI flare, but said the fibro points were very "jumpy" and figured the traveling in late Feb.(and the stress of getting my mother moved to a retirement home) triggered a fibro flare that may take me a couple more weeks to move past. He Rx'd Lodine(Etodolac) for pain, which I've never taken before. It's an anti-inflammatory. Anybody taken it or have any experience with it? He also gave me an Rx for Antivert in case the vertigo comes back. Never taken that either. If this is just fibro - it sure is kickin' my butt!
