I thought I would formally introduce myself.
I was officially diagnosed with Fibromyalgia yesterday. I am starting on a regiment of 300 mg of Gabapentin at night only and taking Aleve twice a day. I also take Zoloft and my dosage was also increased on that yesterday. I have been getting B12 shots and taking Vitamin D3 and will continue with that as well.
I have Celiac and have been completely Gluten Free for the past five years. I also have IBS and have to watch the Gluten Free substitute products as well as other grains such as rice. I can eat them, but only in small quantities.
I also have interstitial cystitis, but that seems to be under control at the moment (fingers crossed).
My main fibro symptoms at the moment are widespread pain (mainly across my shoulders and neck); fatigue; and fogginess. I tend to forget my words and become spacey. I also have depression so I am just a bit moody at times as well :)
I work full time and hope to continue that since I am a single mom. My mother moved in with me after my father passed away and I got divorced. She has her own set of medical problems, so we help each other out. I have two daughters. One is 17 and one is 13. We also have two cats. One is a kitten who I call demon kitty. LOL. The girls and my cats keep me busy and laughing most days, which is exactly what I need. I am determined to keep a positive attitude and live my life as "normal" as I can.
Gentle hugs to all of you and I am looking forward to getting to know you on this forum.
