Fibromyalgia Is Killing Me And Taking My Life AwayI was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia earlier this year, along with a disc that's been slipping in my back, from falling down on my butt too much earlier in life. I am so miserable every single day. I can't sleep for more than 3 hours and when I wake up, it is excruciating pain from the top of my head to my toes. My joints and muscles ache like I worked out the previous day ... and I didn't! I have been put on Lyrica and Savella and these are not working. I am under a lot of stress right now, having to move in two weeks and I am so tired all the time I can't get anything packed up. Today I just cried and cried because I couldn't figure anything else to do. My doctor insists that the medication should work and it doesn't. It is taking my life away. I can't get out of the house to do things I need to do, I can't drive without the constant aching, to turn around and look out the rear window of the car is excruciating.... I was not like this 2 years ago, my life was going right, I was depressed, but getting through it, and now this. Can anyone give me some advice on how to carry on? I am at my wits end and have almost no support; people just don't understand or assume I am just faking this and being lazy. Someone, please help???????????
