Iv ad a BAD weekend and my sisters friend who has sufferd with fibro for 11 years, advised me try gabapentin as she swears by it making her much better. Has anybody tried this medication? she also says to use sea kelp?
Thanks vab, maybe its not for me then as its all in my head now and i need somethink to wake and shake me, its like my heads velcroed to the pillow!!! and the depretion well we wont even go there i will enquire to my doctor but i figured latley am more knowledgable about my illness now then he is.
You're quite welcome. I can honesty say that if you take Neurontin or Lyrica it will not help the fog...it will make it worse as that seems to be a side-effect. That's one reason I opted to discontinue the Lyrica.
If you are looking for something to help with the pain of FMS, Cymbalta is an antidep that I found quite effective.
I sure understand what you mean...I could use some of that "wake and shake" too!
I too took gabapentin and had a side effect that I did not expect...it affected mt IBS....my gastro dr said to stop it and that es it was the gabapentin that caused the issues and since I had IBS it should not have been rx'd.
Everyone is diff so what works for one may not work the same for the next...and the same goes with side affects.
