I am new. My name is as stated.
The docs tell me I have Firbo. But I also have extensive arthritis in my neck. My rheumatologist is wondering how I could have it so bad at 42yrs. I have RLS and have seen a sleep doc as well. I usually take requip, but the doc wants me to try mirapex.
In reading the warnings and studies, I see that the requip can cause arthritis. WOW
I am on: Wellbutrin, vallum, requip, oxycontin, vicodin, prilosec (go figure) an feldene, zanaflex, lyrica, robaxin...hum..oh yeah, I have COPD but just recently quit smokoing, (chantix and my belief in God really did it for me) so I have a few inhalers also.
Those meds strarted out slowly after physical training. I have also been a pin cussion.
I do not use those all eveyday, but I do feel like I am playing with them trying to figure out what will work next because, I still hurt.
I am having a mri on my brain tomorrow. I want MS ruled out.
I am forgetful, can not recite numbers correctly (I say them out of order) but I can usually key them correctly. I have trouble reading too, but only outloud.
I really want something to be wrong, so it can be fixed. My doc's agree that I can't be fixed (lol).
I guess I just want to see what is out there reqarding these topics.
I am a confessing Christian but will refrain as much as possible to draw my beliefs into conversation in order to remain as politically correct as possible.
So "Hi" to everyone.
