    well i went to the doc yesterday. he is really nice and understands fibro. he gave me celebrex which right now is making me sick...its an anti-inflammatory which i am a little mad now that i know that (he didnt tell me that) b/c i told him they did not work for me. i am feeling really sick and in pain cuz he poked and prodded all over as most firsts visits. just another bad day for me...dont know if im gonna make it through work today...so sick...in pain and another thing..the chat room is down! need someone to talk to...help :**(

    I am glad I checked in before I get ready to go. I am so sorry that you are hurting, hang in there. Can you call him about the medicine making you sick? Our weather is a little snowy and cold, I am hurting too. Not that it helps you any by telling you that. I am going to the new Dr. today, I am worried about feeling worse after being prodded all over also, but am anxious to see this Dr. and maybe get somewhere finally. Is there anything you can drink that will settle your tummy? I will be thinking of you and will check in again when I get to work. ((((HUGS)))) to you!!!!

    Sorry you are hurting so bad. I am down too ... I think it is the weather doing me in (it is snowing). I am on lasix since I swelled up so bad over the weekend. I think it's helping some but my joints are absolutely killing me. I am hoping that this Rheumy I am going to see in a couple weeks can help me. He is supposed to be really good and knowledgeable about FM. The nurse practitioner I saw Monday put me on Tramadol (Ultram) and said it would not make me drowsy ... HA. lol These DRs do not know the side effects unless they have taken the drug themselves. I had trouble with Lyrica but others love it. Since I am off on STD I don't care if I am drowsy. It sounds like that chat room has had issues for days. I hope you feel better hun,

    Hello! I am at work now. Wow the roads were a little slick this morning. :) I have a meeting and other things I have to run around doing today. I know I will be very sore by tonight due to the cold weather. I have found it makes me feel worse. Lastnight I even put a heating pad in bed for my calves, still cramping from the night before.
    I would not feel stupid for calling the Dr. if it is making you feel that bad. At least let him know how it is making you feel. I know it is a hard decision about staying at work when you don't feel good. I am the main contact at our office and try to put on a good front that I feel great for now. I need the job, I have one son that is graduating this year, one that is in 10th grade and special needs, and another one that is in 9th grade.
    Anyway enough about me. I hope you get feeling better real soon. Keep in touch.

    I am glad to hear that you are feeling less sick now. I hope the pain lets up also!!!! I am going to be heading out here in a bit to my meeting. I will check in when I get back, if I don't have a chance before my appt. I will let you know how the Dr. visit went. Take care and keep smiling. :)
