    Does anyone have huge cravings?
    Lately I find myself eating off and on all day long! I eat more than my husband at dinnertime, and then and hour later I'm hungry again!!
    I have been craving triskits with cheese...

    a handful of those! Boy, did they taste good. No cheese, though. I used them along with a whole fruit drink for lunch.

    No, I haven't been hungry for which I am very thankful. Does this just come and go? I think our bodies many times just need more food if we are normal, everyday people. Sometimes, we are hungrier than others.

    So, don't know...but that's my take.

    Take care,
    Sue

    I don't eat when I feel bad or am having a flare unless I just had more shots then the darn injections make me want to eat.....maybe it is a side effect from a med?

    Maybe its teh Elavil that I take at night huh? I hear it can cause weight gain...If I keep eating like this, I will gain weight! And water pilates, yoga, forget it! I havent gone in 2 weeks! I'd rather hurry home after work and eat, take my pills and go to sleep!

    I took it for three days, and I was ravenous the entire time. Even after a full meal, I still felt really hungry!

    Just a thought!

    I take mine around 6 or 7 at night and a few hours later I want to EAT something like carbs or sweets. I refrain most of the time, good luck with this !!

    EAT EAT EAT ALL THE TIME!!!!!I might be boring everyone cuz I have put this on so many boards but the Elavil makes you crave sweets & carbs.Cymbalta and probably other drugs also make you gain weight. This is one of the biggest complaints I have ever had about meds. Good Luck and I hope you can learn to control it better than I can or perhaps change drugs.

    I was taking flexural which was good for the pain, but I could not stop eating.

    My husband of 23 years would watch me and wonder where his wife went. Before and after flexural, I never finished a meal let alone appetizers and dessert

    I want to eat all the time also. I do take elavil, but I take it at night, and I have my cravings mostly in the late afternoon and evening.

    When I first was diagnosed with this dd, I had lost a lot of weight. I have gained a lot of it back, and work like he** keeping it off.

    I just want to eat when I want to eat! Is that asking too much?
