I would love some guidance from anyone who has ideas to help my fibro pain. To outline my history, my nerve pain actually started after I was diagnosed with endometriosis in my early 20s. I had lower abdominal pain along with chronic joint pain for over 10 years. In 2015 I had a hysterectomy and no longer have abdominal pain which is amazing!! But I still have super bad chronic joint pain. Here are all of the things I have tried for my chronic joint pain:
Savella, Zoloft, Gabapentin, Lyrica, Cymbalta, Effexor, Desipramine, and many more.... Some of these medications did nothing and others worked for a short period of time and then stopped working.
I have also tried a chiropractor and acupuncturist to help with the joint paint to no avail. I really just want to be able to live day to day with a pain level below5 which has not happened in a long time. In addition to these medications and other types of treatment, I swim 3-4 times a week since its really the only form of exercise I can handle since it's low impact and I also started Plexus two months ago since I know several people who have said this helps with Fibro. It's too soon to tell if that is going to help since they say it can take some people months to feel the affects.
Anything that works for other people that I should try or any suggestions on how to guide my doctor in a new direction?
Well, I slept 9 hours! Yeah... I was meant to be at my mom's 90 minutes ago. As you can see... Not hurrying over there. I need an hour to wake up, shower, dress, and just care enough to not go back to bed when it's this kind of fibro-achy day.She's been asking me if I'm okay. A lot. Everyone is wondering what's next. Like, she tried calling me an abuser and nearly had me investigated by cops,...
