My story is long and complicated but basically, some quack dr put meon high dose prednisone for an allergic condition, withing two weeks, my knees were completely crippled and in severe pain and i had a pulmonary embolism. Then, i couldnt walk, the pain kept up, i was hospitalized three times since. latest one ten days and now they tell me they are fairly certain it is fibromyalgia. If undiagnosed/untreated , can teh flares really last fourmonths? I have been in so much excruciating pain (vicoden and dilaudid do not even touch it) every single day of the four mos.I think the prednisone brought this all on, drs are saying the trauma of embolism did. (that covers the butt of prescribing dr too...) but , does any of this make sense to you guys? I did have pain in my elbows before all of this, but never an ache or anything like that, but I sure had the depression and anxiety my whole life. They put me on the gabapentin (neurontin)900mgs a day, and I am PRAYING this gives me some type of remssion. If ive had this my whole life, which the fatigue,etc i have had, then obviously i had it in a good remission. Do you think I can get it back that way, or am I ruined for life? i had to move back in with my parents and on a walker now. I was at gym for hours before all of this so I am just devastated.. please give me advice.. thanks so much guys... a
