About Me: Female, 36, Boston, MA, member since Jan 2009
Hi everyone! My name is Serina and I'm from good old Boston, Massachusetts. I've been dealing with several medical issues since I was a child. I just happened to stumble upon this website and fell in love with the kind people here that know EXACTLY what I'm talking abou
[More]t (something i thought i would never have). This website is a real blessing!
Hi, glad to hear you're getting used to the meds a bit, when you up the dose, you won't feel anywhere near as bad as when you started on it. It seems to be with most meds, the first few days on it is the killer, and from then on it's just back a bit each time, once it's in your system, and you've got through the first week, you're gonna cope with it and should be able to drive ok. It made me very tired--on top of the fibro tiredness, you know what i mean. Does it seem to be helping at all with the pain etc? There again, you're still on a low dose, I hope it gives you some help, it works for a lot of people, so keep those fingers crossed :) Carole.x.
Hi Am getting over flu now thanks. Are you still walking about in an amytriptilene haze? lol. I takes ages to get to feel normal, how on earth do you cope with a bus full of school kids, I couldn't do it, and seeing as murder isnt legalised over here yet, it's probably a good job I don't do it!! I know the drug does help a lot of people, but I never got comfortable with it, in fact my dr took one look at me, and said I looked so zonked out, he was worried about me driving home, was in a daze for weeks!! Hope you're coping better than I did, take care, Carole.x.
Just a quick note to say hi! I am new and do not know how to respond to your question.
My pancreas doctor put me on elavil for pain.
25mg. So far? Its' been 2 weeks, and I guess it has helped a little. Just to let you know? It makes you gain weight.
I have an eating disorder, and sometimes
wants to not try new things. But, hope it helps you. How long have you been on it? Usually? It takes six weeks for it to begin to work. So, I am waiting it out.
Hope you feel better soon! Hi, Are you glad you finally got your diagnosis? It's a bit of a double edged sword isn't it,wanting to know and feeling so down about all the pain, and not being able to do things you want. They taught me to pace myself in everything I do, and not do too much, which I had been doing. It's hard when you're only young, and want to do everything your friends do, and you must feel life is so unfair, but really, you can live with it, Just remember, they're are up times as well, and don't do too much. just because you have a reasonably good day,and make yourself worst for the next day.You're not alone, and tomorrow, they may find a cure!!!
