Thanks for reading and I hope I...

    Medication

    Both my husband and I have fibromyalgia. We both take Lyrica. It works for me but it makes him drowsy during the day and he is a teacher. He is in pain all day. Can anyone tell me a medication that has diminished the pain during the day and does not make you drowsy. Thank you so much.
  • I just called to see if there was any cancellations. There wasn't, but there was an opening for September 6 at another location closer to my house. Thank goodness. I am so glad I don't have to wait until October 10.

    Tooth pain-Fibro??

    6
    Good afternoon, Does anyone know if tooth pain is Fibro?? It feels like sensitivity and pain like you get with sinus infection. I use prescription sensitivity toothpaste and have been doing well in that department. No congestion. Just wondering if it is another one of the symptoms of Fibro? THANKS and please take good care of yourselves.

    I am trying to thing it's a good morning, trying to be positive, but I feel like I got hit by a mac truck. The pain....numbness, tingling. Ugh. My feet. The feeling there changes by the second. It's either extreme pain from the plantar faciitis or the numbess and tingling from the neuropathy. At least I don't have a headache today. I still take a bunch of supplements as recommended by my pain...

    What now Wednesday Check-in

    Good morning! (Or afternoon, evening, etc.) I slept little, but it wasn't fibro. It was Hubby's wristwatch. He accidentally set it to go off every hour on the hour and has yet to figure out how to undo it. I'll note he's had the same watch for 25 years. I gave it to him. I know. Aiee!So what do I do now? No book chapter in a textbook for me. Mom doesn't trust me, and is pis*ing away every good...

I want my house clean for when my dad comes to visit. He has been...

    desperate mom

    Hi, I am a mom of a 12 yr old son that has been diagnosed with fibromyalgia. He has been having symptoms for the last year, but only once a month for 3 or 4 days, the rest of the time he is a normal active pre teen. I am very familiar with fibromyalgia, both of his grandmas have it, and my sister. It took my a long time to realize that's what he had. A lot of what I've read said it mostly affects...
