    i realize i've posted alot in the past couple days =x
    but i do have another question.

    i've had a minor problem since about a month or two after i first got sick with FM. i can't look to the side of me. if i try to move my eyes far to the left or right i end up almost blacking out, and getting little spots in my vision.

    anyone had any experience with this?

    I never knew my dizzy spells were connected to the fibro until my doc told me. He told me when ever I get them to take meclazine(spelling?). It's motion sickness pills. They help the inner ear to balance out the fluid in it. I haven't gotten them in a long time.

    You could try them, they are over the counter meds. But I would ask your doc first to make sure it is alright for you.

    halo,
    is the meclazine a type of nausea med?
    my doctor prescribed phenergan the other day,
    and it says it's also for motion sickness.
    haven't tried it yet though.

    yeah i suspected the dizziness was a common side effect from the fibro, i've had it for pretty much as long as i've been sick. it makes it really hard to take showers and stuff though, i have to keep myself from getting too dizzy and blacking out.

    bet,
    what is the dramamine?
    is it a motion sickness thing too?
