I was diagnosed 6 years ago. I had all the tests and lab work my primary doc could think of and after three months other than prescribe pain killers he didn't know what to do. My daughter heard of a specialist in fibro. so I contacted him and was with him for 3 years he did yoga and herbs, and started me on Nortriptyline did more test tried to sell me on accupuncture and every vitamin and herb you could think of . after spending a literal fortune and dreading going to his office and being given a sales pitch I went solo. I exercised got my weight down found out what foods aggrivated me. and for 2 years this worked . A few months ago The pain came back with a vengeance. I don't know why It seems to be weather related but I'm not sure. I can't get on top of the pain. I went back to my primary for help I asked him to prescribe the nortriptyline to help me get some sleep and relief from the pain I am on 50mg a night no real relief, Im afraid to ask him to up the dose and get more constipated than I am. Or to begin putting the weight back on. It really increases my appetite, but I've been fighting it. Now I am depressed, hungry, constipated and in pain. I need help. Does anyone out there have any ideas!
