New to this group. I've recently been diagnosed with fibromyalgia and rheumatoid arthritis. My doc put me on Gabapentin for the fibro and Plaquenil and Sulfasalazine for the RA. It's been about 3 months that I've been on the Gabapentin but I don't think it's helping. Just when I thought I was feeling better, I had 3 horrible days in a row of body aches, headaches, etc. and have each week since then. I even left work right after lunch today. That's the third day I've left early since this diagnosis. Has anyone actually had any meds help them with overall body aches/flu-like symptoms? Between these two conditions, I'm getting depressed. The fatigue is unreal lately. A lot of times I don't even know which condition is causing the symptoms. Hoping to hear what helps you with body aches and fatigue. I've had to take Tramadol about 3x per week for a few months now not to mention lots and lots of Aleve, Advil or Tylenol for daily headaches. Oh, and my job is very stressful right now which makes everything worse. Thank you all for listening. Take care.
But on the inside my heart is shattered. Dad is more and more tired each day and needing his lung drained more often. So short of breath. tomorrow we find out stage of his mesleothelioma. And this week we get a treatment plan. I was up about 72 hours before i crashed around 1 am last night till about 7am but woke up in between. Most sleep ive gotten in 2 weeks at once. I just want to break down...
Good morning.Celebrate today for whatever reason, in whatever way, you feel best for you. The end.Peace & purrs:-) Dixie, where she's not meant ot be, yet again, and quite serene about it all. Fleece blanket? Nap time? Yep, that's her celebration!
