Aug 28, 2017 · Gabapentin in Chronic Pain

I understand what you’re feeling. Today I felt the exact same way. Went to a rumatologist who said to me fibromyalgia is a term that Drs. use when they can’t figure out what is wrong with you and because “they can’t tell the patient they are coo koo”. She continued to say that yes she can say that I meet the point rule, but She thought I stopped exercising when I broke my ankle. My problem is I need to exercise. Ok, great. I knew that. What I don’t know is why the pain everywhere?

I so understand your dilemma. I am 60 this month and have had this issue since I was in my 30’s. It was nothing to lay down to take a nap and wake up 4 or 5 hours later and still be exhausted and ready for bed at night. I am still fighting to get someone to recognize what I am trying to say. I went to the Dr. this past week with the complaint of painful joints, brain fog, headache and exhaustion. At the appointment she raises my Zoloft and talks to me about my mood and the she sends me for blood work to check my thyroid and A1C. Recommendation to watch what I am eating and she will see me in a month. My job is suffering, my family life suffers, and my health continues to suffer. I am not sure how many times over the years I have asked myself “is it really just in my head?” Sorry to be a downer, I do have wonderful moments. I have realized that I have to force myself to keep going and the more I move I do forget about the pain. I am also still looking for help.

Hi, My name is Cheryl. This is my first time logging on this site. Many times I have felt that I had nowhere to go and no one would understand. I am not even sure I am in the right group. I do suffer from constant pain, but have difficulty pinning down where the pain is coming from or which hurts the most. I was diagnosed with Epstein Barr when I was in my middle 20’s and don’t know if that is part of my problem or not. Exhausted all the time, trouble sleeping due to pain in my back, neck, feet, head…… I have been going to the Dr, but nothing seems to happen. Just tired.
