In 2008 I had a major bout of depression. I had never had that type of situation, however, I did have some anxiety issues when I was 15. I am now 45. The psych doc put me on wellbutrin 75mg 3x a day, limibitrol (old drug used for IBS) at night, and .5 of xanax once a day (in am). Since then I have had a severe increase in my fibromyalgia pain. I actually have a whole week once a month where my joints are so painful that I don't want to get up and I can't walk my feet are so painful. The Rheumotologist says he can't diagnose FM (not his specialty) but can go as far as to say it may be Shogrens. (??) I begin a new job in a few weeks and have to get all of this under control. My anxiety is somewhat in check, my depression is better, but definitely still there, and I can't get a doctor to help me get it all straight. I can't afford to stay home which I have been doing for years due to degenerative disk disease and three herniated disks in my neck. I am sure someone has a doctor who knows way more about all of this. HELP!
