What medications or exercise routines or dietary changes have helped any of you suffering with fibro? I have recently been diagnosed with it and I have to say, I am still doubtful about the diagnosis. I have all the symptoms and my Dr has ruled out RA, Lymes, and PA, as well as other inflammatory diseases. The pain is just unbelievable in my legs, especially at the end of the day. By about 8:30 PM I am in spasms and have to take a muscle relaxer. But I hate taking them because then I feel drugged out the next day and I'm only taking 5mg! So between the inflammation and the pain, I have been laying low, I've been more and more depressed - now my counselor wants me to go back on an AD. I've heard that cymbalta is used for depression and fibro - anyone tried it? NSAIDS don't work at all so I don't bother with them anymore. The last thing is that as some of you know, we've been having our house exterminated once a month for the past 3 months for ants. Now although some of this inflammation and pain came well before the exterminators showed up - do you think the severity is in any way related to the fibro symptoms I'm experiencing? I just want some feedback before I go see my Dr this afternoon and you all are so great at sharing your stories. I've gotten a lot of info on line, but I'd like to hear about some first hand experience. Thanks.
