Down and Out... Still?

Well, I am not as down or out as I was but I am not quite better yet. The extra liver tests that the doctor did came back negative... which is a good thing however it means they are still trying to figure out what is wrong. I had been writing down all of my symptoms to tell the doctor and he is not 100% but with my symptoms he thinks it may be fibromyalgia. I looked it up online and found these symptoms... and I have to tell you most of the symptoms are things I have experienced recently and some have been quite long term. The doctor put me on Pregabalin (Lyrica) to see if it helps. I'll keep you posted!

Definitely do! I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia (on top of the RA) back in '94. I will be interested to hear if Lyrica helps you...I haven't tried it yet. For me, stress, lack of sleep, and weather changes all really affect my energy and pain levels.
