I feel the same way. My doctor is leaning towards fibromyalgia and already diagnosed CFS. Only, my doctor will prescribe me pain pills for my aches and pains. They even help the Exhaustion a little. But, I haven't taken a pain pill for 4 days, so I'm really feeling it now. I have RLS and my legs hurt extremely all the time. Today I am very weak and have cried. Reading your post helps me know I'm not alone. Why can't they fix this? Sometimes I wish I could just touch a doctor and "somehow" he would know and realize what I'm going through. I'm sure that if the doctors had what we have, they would find a cure! You're right, it is a nightmare, but we are here for you. I was going for walks(pushing myself) for a while. That seemed to help a little. The weathers cooling, so maybe you could try it? I understand you're 58, I'm 38 and have only been suffering with this for a year and a half now. Each morning I wake up and feel more awful than the day before. I usually feel best right before bed. Of course! I want to try Lyrica, but I have heard of the side effects, and I'm worried. I wish you could find something to help you. I hear Cymbalta works, too. Maybe ask him for that.
Remember, you are important in this world! None of us feel that we can make it another day, but we do. Right now, it seems that "quantity" is better than "quality" of life at the moment. Just have faith(in yourself and God) and things will work out, sooner or later.
I hope you are feeling better today. Best wishes,
I just read a short article on remedies for RLS on Care2.com. It mentioned iron and magnesium and one other that I never heard of called L-theanine and mentioned Dr. Teitelbaum. That got my attention. He suggested 200 mg of Sun Theanine (don't know where to get it either) one hour before bed time. The article said that it's good for sleep, too. The article mentioned that this is a natural form of GABA.
THANK YOU , I will try to searh on the web and find out more on it .
