The dose starts off low and works its way up. It says it takes about
a week or so to get into your system, but I felt something last night. I felt like I wanted to laugh. I felt that tickle in my stomach. I hadn't had that in a while. I also slept really well, even better than I do on the magnesium. I don't think this was a placebo effect. I really did feel better. I took my pain meds at 4:00pm yesterday, took Savella at 7:45pm, and didn't take another pain pill until 4:00 this morning. I never do that. I always take my pain pills every 4-6 hours so something is happening.
I really hope this medicine works. We are closing on our house on Wednesday and I need to be able to move! I will keep everyone updated. I think it is very important that I be a "test subject" so to speak since Fibromyalgia sometimes comes with Lyme. I suffered for over a year and I don't want any of you to suffer like I did.
