Hey Applevenus (again, lol
I know you're worried about
the side-effects and potential issues passed onto your organs but at this time, if you're not finding relief with alternative meds and therapies, *God, you'd think I work for Pfizer or something* wouldn't you like to it least see what can help you get some or all of your life back??
After my huge IBS issue, I swore that I'd never ever touch another antibiotic, NSAID, nevermind all these other drugs I'm on now. However, and to tell you the truth, I became desperate even for a small bandaid solution to help since we all know Fibro isn't curable. I still have difficulties, but they've been reduced by an astronomical amount *in my mind anyway*. In the morning after I take my Cymbalta, about
30-60 minutes later I can wake up, feel reduced pain ALL over *my wrists and lower back hurt last night*, and I can actually do exercises that stretch me out and make me healthier
. I did not have this ability last year, the year before, jock that up to 3+ years
I'd also like to mention that I was doing Chiropractic and Massage therapy since this started decreasing my mobility in '08. Neither of those helped. I also sought a Naturopath, and she too was bewildered that most of the 'natural' therapies, including vitamin, had little to no effect on me
All I can say is we're all desperate for a solution, that I am 100% aware of. Keep in mind how different we all are when it comes to Fibromyalgia and the therapies that work vs. don't work. Don't let others scare you into not trying something that may turn out to be your saving grace, I beg you!
