Hi deb, welcome to the family, I agree docs can be like meds, you never know which
one is really going to work for you. I have had my share of them but now have a great
rheumy. My body couldn't tolerate the Cymbalta...I felt dizzy and naseaus, I've been
on Savella for a year and it has helped. I'm never pain free, but findind something to
take the edge off sure helps. A muscle relaxer helps me when I'm flaring. I haven't
used it nightly for a sleep aid because I'm afraid of it losing it's effectiveness for flares.
I'm taking 5000 mcgs B-12 daily for fatigue and this has helped alot. Exercise helps
give me energy too. I walk daily. Taking one day at a time is the best way to go!
Glad you joined us!
