Doctors Appointment

Monday, June 04, 2012

Where to start? Just had a Doctor's appointment for my fibromyalgia and I have just found out that I can't be helped with the fibroymyalgia because there are no medicines left that I can take for it. All the other ones makes my blood pressure go up or causes other side effects.

This leaves me to the question, What now? The doctor said I will just have to deal with the pain. To top all of this off I was starting to drop weight and get a handle on my exercise then the pain came back full force and I fell off the wagon and gained every pound back plus one. I was very faithful to the Spark website and then it was like so what....

I know I need to dust myself off and go at it again, but its so hard when you hurt. I was really hoping for a solution for the doctor today. Does anyone else with fibro have this same medication problem?

    Susan, I know how you feel my pain has been so bad recently Sometimes all I do is cry from the pain. I have tried so many different meds but still have pain. My Dr. increased my gabapentin to 600 mg a day and started me on viibryd 40 mg a day but so far it is not working. I don't know if you have tried any of these. I get so tired of taking medicine I think sometimes it hurts more than it helps. My Dr. also told me if I could work through the pain to exercise every day that it is better for fibro than any pill. I hope you can find something that will give you some relief.

    Susan stay prayerful and look for natural cures and exercises and diets geared towards your diagnosis. I don't know what this is like so I won't make light of it but you just have to mope for a little while and remember why you started this. On the painful days find some therapy like a heated shower, bath, jacuzzi or cold if you prefer. Pamper the pain and yourself. I am pulling for you and I am hoping that you can find a way to feel healthier and happier while dealing with this and still fininding a way to reach your weight loss goal. Sending you positive energy and prayers. emoticon emoticon

    I have a friend with it and I do not get to see her as much as I'd like.

Bless you!
