I went to doc yesterday and I'm always questioning him on fibro to get his opinion on the causes and everything and of course I never run out of questions. He is patient but I hate sitting there for an hour drilling him on fibro every time I go. I do get money's worth.
Anyway he said our temperature problems come from the hypothalamus. I did do some quick research this morning and the hypothalamus also controls appetite. Now I can't remember what else it controls but I think mood is in there. We do hear hypothalamus mentioned in therories on the cause of fibro. A lot of hypothalamus problems is caused from stress or overload.
He leans more towards the anti-depressants than pain meds and would like for me to try cymbalta.
I'm sure everyone's doc has a different apinion on this.
luv and hugs
