Oh man, ya, switching any kind of medication freaks me out too. I'm always afraid I'll be allergic to the new stuff and have a reaction like I did in June.... OY.
Anti d's are something I used to be on. Back in 200-2002. I was on Paxil. NOt sure if your meds are in the same drug family. SSRI's? I hated Paxil. I hope your new one will work better for you. I guess all you can do is try, and if it doesn't work, then you haven't really lost anything right? You can go back on the old one?
I have had electrical treatments on my neck for my arthritis! I found that it worked great. Gave me quite a bit of relief for 2 whole days. I'm getting another treatment this afternoon. Rosie's idea of a tens unit is a great one. My physiotherapist uses those too. I'd give the electrical treatments a good try. It sure helped me!
I can do anything through Jesus Christ who strengthens me. I have learned in whatever state I am in,to be content. Phillipians 4:11-13
