I understand your concern about
what to take and how you are going to react but we don't all react the same way. I took Savella with minor side effects while others I know tried and hand major. That can be said about
ever medication out there though.
Have they checked your D and B levels yet? Mid/late summer would be a very good time to get that test done. My Fibro pain seemed to be mostly nerve related. Savella helped me at least 90% and I did find out through all the testing that I have Rosacea and Psoriatic Arthritis and Polyps (one being pre-cancer). I also found that my Cholesterol medication was causing severe complications. Recently jumped off of Savella and noticed that my Arthritis didn't hurt as much and a slight cloud lifted. I switched to LDN which has given me even more control back then Savella did. I still can't remember much of squat short term but it's improved and my concentration is a bit better and when things settle down with the switch I may look at adding one of the ADHD meds to try to get my brain back in sync. :) But..... I have very little pain and for that I'm grateful.
Vit D, Tart Cherry Juice and DL-phen were things I added on my own. I sleep better and my feet don't hurt as much.. and my general mood is better. I was low on D though and fine on the B's. Best to have a doc run the tests to rule out things.... Pssst.. I DO have a bottle of Vicodin tucked in my dresser for when I need it..
Truthfully.. I'm still waiting for the Jetson Era to come into play.. Step in a room and all these scan's do their thing and bam... they tell you what all is wrong!
DX: Fibro, PA (Psoriatic Arthritis), Psoriasis, Rosacea.
