I cant take medication ebcause no matter what it is I ALWAYS have BAD reactions/side effects to them so I gave up on meds a few yrs ago. SOme days are so tough to get thru, some days it seems hopeless to keep living without relief. Am I alone here? or is anyone else out there with fibro/cfs NOT taking medication for ANYTHING...just living life getting by and doing the best you can with all these miserable symptoms and such? I always find that the drug side effects make me a million times worse feeling then the actual illness...even simple things like anti-biotics.
