I've tried everything imaginable, from drugs to natural remedies and even though some drugs seems to help temporarily, I cannot tolerate the side effects. I also have a low tolerance to just about anything. I have spent thousands of dollars trying to alleviate this, and I am so worn out. It also doesn't help that my b/f of 10 years doesn't 'believe in it' so I don't get much emotional support. My supervisor at work also doesn't believe it, although he's had to accept the diagnosis and my part-time disability. I keep reading how things like more exercise are supposed to help and that people have been cured, but one walk around the block causes one week's worth of EXTRA pain and it's hard to get motivated on that. I have an appointment with my Psych. this aft, and so far he has prescribed me so many different drugs and I will once again get a prescription for something else, which will probably not work. He's starting to believe that I'm not giving anything a chance, but I am, and I'm just overwhelmed. I am so exasperated, and wonder what other people have done that has REALLY helped (for more than a week or so).
