    I just wanted to introduce myself to you guys. I am Nichole. I am 21 years old. I am married to a wonderful guy named Kris who is active duty military. We are stationed in Germany right now. We have no children.

    I was DX with fibro in Feb. but have had symptoms for a few years...even back in Jr. High school. I also have IBS, and depression. I take Bentyl,elevil,celexa,Lopramide, and just started on Ultrum. The Ultrum makes me very tired...but hopefully it gets better soon.

    I work a full-time job as a office automation clerk (aka paper person). Sometimes I think that it is to much for me but not sure I am willing to give it up yet. I have good days and bad as everyone does. I try to stay active...force myself to do things most weekends.

    I am also looking for a place that talkes about housekeeping and things like that with Fibro and other illness like it.

    Well...I am happy to be here and look forward to chatting with you guys.

    I am on Tramadol HCL...not sure if it is Generic or not. I go to a military pharmacy so they just give me what they have I can't ask for the regular or generic. My dr and the pharmicist are hopefull that it will work.

    I got one more blood test done yesterday that will take about a week to get back. Then I see my dr in two weeks to talk about getting a MRI/CAT scan or a bone scan done on my back since I have been having so much trouble with it. I do have some weird looking hip bones from what the dr says. So we will see what happens.

    Right now I am trying to only take the Ultrum when I really need it...Working with it is so hard.

    Hi Nichole, welcome to our world. Glad you found the board.

    I sure hope the doctors find something to help you, you are so young to have this illness. It really sucks!

    Can't help personally with your meds, only thing I take is Xanax for racing brain syndrome, but others will be sharing with you.

    Compliments to your husband Kris, and you. I am big fan of the military and do appreciate all that they stand for.

    Also the families like yourself, you all are a great bunch of people for serving your country.

    Again, welcome to the board, I do hope we can help you have a better quality of life. We do have some wonderful, friendly and well informed people here concerning these illnesses.

    Shalom, Shirl
