I just joined and cry as I sit here. I can't sleep. I hurt so bad. I have to work in the morning. I feel like my life is broken down into 2 categories...pain or the fear of being in pain. I am only 35, a pediatric nurse, have a 15 year old daughter, have been married 17 years and have always been a happy, healthy person, even volunteering as a firefighter/paramedic. But after being on prednisone from Nov 1 until Dec 30 I have ballooned up in weight, and after being in so much pain for so long I feel I now have situational depression. After talking to one of the Dr's I work about my symptoms she suggested that I may have fibromyalgia. She then told me she herself is a sufferer which is why she only works 3 mornings a week. After doing alot of research on it (I wasn't too familiar as I am a pediatric nurse) I am now certain that Is what I have. I have an appt with my Dr on Jan 17'th to discuss/confirm the diagnosis and get a referral to a rheumatologist. Until then I take flexeril from a back injury a few years ago, and tyl#3 left over from a sinus infection I had begining in Sept and lasting until the end of Dec (which is why I was on the prednisone) and I just now took the last of the percocet I was given for the same sinus infection, but I've already had 2 since 8pm along with 2 flexeril. Still I sit here with only a little reief and still alot of pain and insomnia.
