Fibromyalgia Medication and treatment

Posted by Sundance(RB) @sundance6, Jun 1, 2019

I have been on the Mayo Connect for over six months. My symptoms point to the umbrella of things, Lyme disease, West Nile, Fibromyalgia, Lupus, and Chronice Fatigue. I have seen every doctor in my hospital system. Had every test and scans done. JUST MADE MORE $$ FOR THE HOSPITAL SYSTEM!
Yesterday I finally went to a Rheumatologist for a consultation on a blood test. When I expalined what I had been going through the last ten months he finally gave me a diagnoses. (First one after 10 months and 10 doctors.)There is a small chance I may have Lyme Disease, but to late to tell. He said he was sure it is Fibromyalgia. He said I should have been directed to him when it first started. (Again as many of you agree they put you through unecessay test and perscribe pills to make $$ for the industry.
So now that I fianally have some direction to move, I need some advice, information, what helps, what causes it and such. He said he feels mine is in the area of sleep. Does this make sense to anyone? He is sending me to a sleep clinic for evaluation.
I know I have seen many postings about Fibromyalgia, but I guess it is the “Fibro Fog” that dosen’t remember all.
Can someone lend me some advice.
I had been on Gabretentian but the side effects were worse than my pain! We are tryng Cymbalta. Can anyone let me know how it has worked for them. Anything to watch for?
As always this site is the Best! People are so honest and open about helping.
Thanks,
Sundance

Thanks! Great to hear! It is something new to me! You are a stronger willed person than I! If I did it at home I woulld find some excuse not to do it. I did recieve a thread today about a lady in Northern Cal. who has cured/helped herself by doing Laughter Yoga!
Very interesting! The late Basketball Coach Jimmy Valvono said everyday we need to Laugh, Cry, and think.
How true!

@sundance6 I once went to a class it was laughter for your health. It didn't catch on but laughter is good for your health even just laugh at yourself. haha After our exercise class I tell jokes so we all laugh. It tickles the inside .

I don't know if aany of you have read the story of Katie Ledecky Our World Class Lady Swimmer. It was a Big Surprise when she was bested in her #1 event. They said she just Ran out of Gas!
In our papaer the story appeared as to what was going on with her. She was complaining or Headaches, Irregular heart beat, lightheadness. and difficult sleeping! She compalined also about extreme fatigue.
Doctors can't explain it. (Does that sound Farmiliar!)
Sounds like Fibromyalgia to me! When is our medical industry going to open their eyes to Fibromyalgia? It truly affects more people that is known.
SAD!
