Is it normal to still feel pain even with the meds? In one day I take: 140 mg Lyrica 1 - Cymbalta 10 mg xanex 50 mg amtriptline My doctor had me on naproxin and 25 mg of amtriptline a day until I went to his office a crying mess. That was about 3 or 4 months’ ago. That's when he prescribed the meds I currently take. The pain I feel ALL over seemed to lighten up a lot at first. Now I am noticing my horrible headaches are back on a daily basis. My legs and back are back to hurting daily too. Things I didn't even know I have hurt! Is it that I have gotten used to my meds and they are not working anymore? My concern is that I might have to take higher doses of my meds and I am already so tired. I get to work at 7 and around 9 I get so tired. I have actually fallen asleep at my desk, not good! Then I take lunch at 11, I do ok until about 2 that is when I want to fall asleep again! I have not been DX with CFS just FM but I have a feeling they go hand in hand. I try to rest and relax when I get home but you know a mother’s work is never done. So should I go back to my doctor and let him know how I feel, or should I stick it out for a while? I do not want to put my self in the position for flair up. However, I have to work. I can’t get fired for sleeping at my desk either.
