My Doctor suggest for Fibromyalgia is to Excercise, Eat well, Meditation, Talk to thearpist and also use some kind of anti deppreasnt for the pain caused by fms which would be elavil. Right now I take Hydrocodone that is the only way I am able to function, When i get up in the mouring im already hurting i dont want to do anything even when i just lay down on the couch to watch something funny the pain is winning, so i take my meds after that im able to function and run a household, I live in a 3 story house, husband two boys and a shepard. My oldest boy is not here alot he has a job so bascially he goes to school work and home, my youngest which is 14 has ADHD AND ALSO ODD, so i have alot of stress there dealing anyways im going way off track but like i was saying earlier I WORK EVERYDAY AND STILL CANT GET AHEAD IM NOT A PERFECTIONST BY FAR but i promise u if i dont stay on top here then i fall so far behind and i get all of this doneafter my meds start taking an effect, but now the bad news is how many pain pills i have better last me a life time here because the Doctor said THERE WILL BE NO MORE, NO MORE SLEEPING PILLS EITHER HE TOLD ME what i wrote in the begining if i do all that i will be good to go. First off when i do get up in the mourings i try to go as long without taking meds, nor very long do i make it, but im real scared because before i do take my meds i have no engery im sore i cant do anything because of the pain and what do u do when u feel that way i have taken nasids DONT DO NOTHING so i guess once my meds run out i will be sitting there suffering in pain, like i really want to go and excercise when i cant even run my household, we have a therapist here but she is the only one so u dont talk to her about your promblems she puts u on the meds tells u to come back next month to see how they r working for you and the rest of the time u r talking to a SOCIAL WORKER. I cant go anywhere else because due to the military we live in Germany. They will not give out pain medicine anymore for fibro anymore, because they do not belive in us they have said it to many times here it is in your head they dont think its real and im wasting there time, by far im not a drug seeker but yes i have been on my meds for over 2 years that was they only thing that helped somewhat, well my doctor moved and now we have new people on staff ARMY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Who bascially says deal with it and also spent 5 minutes with me no lie and titled me a drug seeker. Im pissed i do not abuse these meds in any wayi use them for only pain. well im not sure what i just wrote i just started to ramble from one thing to another

He is one of the best movement disorder secialists in the midwest. I know he is extremely busy on the lecture circuit now and in fact not taking new patients there is a huge waiting list for him.

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
