As a fellow Fibro patient, I send you my love and support! I, too, have found it beyond belief when one symptom’s relief has brought up another symptom.

But please don’t just accept that pain and fatigue are you life! I kept poking my doctors and doing my own research until I found what has worked very well for me. I think that we all have different symptoms, different reactions to treatment, different levels of disability. For me, the answer has been Cymbalta, cannabis and more rest. But others have had totally different outcomes. The answer, I think, is to keep pushing, keep asking, keep challenging the medical world until you find what works best for you. Wishing you good outcomes!!!!
