Just wanted to check in and say hello to you all. I was supposed to check back after my rheumy appointment but have been kind of in a haze over the last few weeks!!
The appointment went as follows:
"Yes...you do have fibromyalgia, however, none of the medications you are on are for fibro." Soooo.....let the fun begin. He wanted to put me on Lyrica...been there done that...made me sick and high all the time. Cymbalta....been there as well...again...sick as a dog! He put me on mobic once a day and also put me on savella. I took one 12.5 mg pill of the savella and i was so sick i couldnt even get out of bed. Needless to say, the savella is out. The Mobic seems to be helping my ribcage pain although it is killing my already existing acid reflux!! I was originally on Neurontin so i just started back taking that since I couldnt take the savella. His goal is to get me on ultracet and change my anti-depressant!! Ugh! I am so bad when it comes to side effects I cringe at the mere thought of trying something new! I have been on so many different meds and have suffered tremendously as many of you have. Maybe sometime in the near future I will have the right combination to make the days bearable because things arent getting any easier. The pain and muscle cramps seem to be getting worse and I am about at my breaking point! Anyway, enough already!
I hope all of you are doing well!
I see where Shirley is having radiation treatments. Good luck to you. You will be in my prayers.
Again....just wanted to thank everyone for being such a wonderful, kind group!! You make days brighter for alot of us!!
