Does anyone else on here suffer from fibromyalgia? Mine started in february 2011. Its a chronic pain disorder of over active nerves. It took me just over 2 years to get diagnosed and I practically did that myself. So as soon as I got diagnosed the doctors started to experiment on me with different medicines. One that they have put me on is amitriptylin which is a depression med but I guess they use low level antidepressants for pain now. Anyways it didn't work out for me and I've been trying to get off of it for a while now and I just cant. All the doctors and all the research I did said it's not suppose to be a dependent/addictive drug but everytime I try to even whean myself off of it I have horrible withdraws. It honestly feels like I'm not all there( if you can understand that). I"ve talked to all my doctors and I swear they're stupid. But I am so tired of doctors and their crappy medicines and experiments I mean damn they could at least warn you about this crap. Sorry just feeling like crap and need to vent.
Ideas off the top of my head are to look for help nutritionally first. Many illnesses stem from what we are putting into our bodies, right?
I don't claim to agree with everything Dr. Mercola teaches but he has a free report (I haven't read it) but it might give you some ideas.
